'CBT Plus, with Anxiety' is a 3-day course from the Association for Psychological Therapies (APT), a leading provider of accredited courses for professionals working in mental health and related areas. See also Effective interventions for anxiety in children and young people.
It is the only CBT for Anxiety, Stress & Worry training that is APT-accredited and also gives you access to APT’s relevant downloadable resources for use post-course. The course is available for teams/organizations and can be attended face-to-face or online. It can also be completed as part of the Extended Training in CBT course, or The APT Diploma in Working with common mental health diagnoses.
'Worry' is the epitome on non-productive distress, because although it is by definition distressing, it also impairs the person's ability to resolve any problems that realistically underlie the worry. Equally, some people find that they have simply acquired the 'habit' of worrying, and as soon as one problem is resolved will find 'another peg to hang their worry on'. And finally there is the concept of 'stress'. Which on this course we define as the pressure put on the person who may or may not suffer sdistressing worry as a result: some individuals seem to acquire a much greater ability to cope with 'stress' than others do.
You will be registered as having attended the course, thereby gaining APT's Level 1 accreditation, and receive a certificate to this effect. The accreditation gives you access to online resources associated with the course and access to the online exam if you wish to uprate your APT accreditation to Level 2.
Your registration lasts indefinitely, and your accreditation lasts for 3 years and is renewable by sitting an online refresher which also upgrades your accreditation to APT Level 2 if you are successful in the associated online exam.
Your accreditation is given value by the fact of over 150,000 people having attended APT training. See APT accreditation for full details.

"The whole course was excellent. I got so much from it and will continue to use it in my work. I'm sorry it has come to an end and would have liked to have gone further. The tutor was 'top class'. Thank you."
“A very informative and helpful course. Very well presented and many informational anecdotes ... I am certain the course will improve my own clinical practice and benefit the patients that I see in my daily work. The APT ethos of delivery and quality of information and handouts is exemplary and the staff in Leicester are a credit to the organization. Thank you for a very enjoyable course.”
