Leading Structured Groups is an APT-Accredited 3-day course from one of Canada's leading providers of mental health training courses. We bring the training to your own organization, for maximum cost-effectiveness, and up to 15 people can attend. (2-day version and refresher courses are also available.)
Most people in the helping professions will find themselves considering running, or actually running therapeutic groups from time to time. And yet, leading groups involves very different skills from those used in one-to-one work.
The course is designed for all those who are considering running or actually running structured groups. Managers are welcome, but should be aware that the course is aimed at practitioners with direct client contact. It is a multidisciplinary course, lasting three days.
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.
