CBT for Eating Disorders training is a 3-day course from The Association for Psychological Therapies, a leading provider of training in mental health and related areas. We bring this APT-Accredited course to your own organisation, for maximum cost-effectiveness, and up to 15 people can attend. (2-day version also available.)
Eating Disorders pose a tremendous threat to an individual's physical and mental well-being and are usually a source of great concern to friends, family and professionals alike. This course looks at the full range of eating disorder presentations, and recognises that many individuals present in ways that don't perfectly fit any of the diagnostic categories.

*On the 3-day version only.
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 100,000 people having attended APT training. See APT accreditation for full details.

Option 2: 'Train the Trainer':
If you or a colleague are a senior professional (e.g. consultant psychologist) and have a talent for communication and teaching, then you are welcome to apply to become an APT-accredited tutor. You could then tutor the course - or your chosen modules from it - in your own organization, under license.
This is not only a highly appropriate use of senior professionals, but it also saves your organization the tutor-component of the fee (around 50%) each time you run it or your chosen modules.
