Executive Summary:

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.

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 organisation, under license.
