Executive Summary:

The 3-day RAID® course is a leading approach for tackling disturbed and challenging behavior at source: over 20,000 professionals have attended it. It is a comprehensive system which teaches professionals a philosophy and practice not only to deal with disturbed and challenging behavior when it occurs, but also to prevent it by nurturing positive behavior targetted to displace the disturbed and challenging behavior. Staff feel pleased to share a unified system and to know what they are doing and why they are doing it, while clients delight in a relentlessly positive and empowering approach.

As well as providing training in the RAID® approach, APT gives annual awards for excellent work with disturbed and challenging behavior, and also recognises RAID® Centres of Excellence

You will be registered as having attended the course, thereby gaining APT's Level 1 accreditation, and receive a certificate to this effect.

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 training from the Association for Psychological Therapies. See APT accreditation for full details.
