'Trauma-Focused CBT, for all ages' is a 3-day course from the Association for Psychological Therapies (APT), a leading provider of accredited training for professionals working in mental health and related areas.
It is the only training on this topic 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/organisations and can be attended face-to-face or online. Children and families version also available.
PTSD is an unusual and often devastating clinical phenomenon, with distressing symptoms and the ability to apparently change the personality of the person displaying it. Clinicians can be at a loss for how to respond to it, and may feel frustrated that their established clinical skills, which work well in other conditions, seem to be redundant with PTSD. This course is for clinicians who need to know about PTSD, how to help patients initially lessen the symptoms of it, then process the trauma, and ultimately head towards growing and developing post-trauma.
People who attend normally fall into one of two categories:
1. Professionals who see patients in 1:1 treatment settings, have a significant degree of clinical skill, and wish to add techniques relevant to PTSD to their repertoire.
2. 'Whole teams' (either in inpatient or community settings) seeking to develop a common approach to PTSD.
The professional affiliations of people attending the training include: mental health/psychiatric nurses, social workers, occupational therapists, clinical psychologists, psychiatrists, probation officers and others.

All delegates are registered at APT as having attended the course, and receive a certificate to acknowledge their attendance, registration, and APT-Accreditation at the appropriate level. As a bona fide APT event, this course automatically has accreditation from The Association for Psychological Therapies. This accreditation is given weight by the fact of over 125,000 professionals having attended APT training.
Upon completion of the 3-day course, delegates will receive Level 1 APT accreditation in the subject, which can be uprated to Level 2 (free of charge) by completing the online exam (in your own time).
