A 3-day course for 6-15 people. (2-day version and refresher courses are also available.)
'Recovery' is an idea that gets people understandably excited. For example, this is what the Sainsbury Centre for mental health said:
"Recovery is an idea whose time has come. At its heart is a set of values about a person's right to build a meaningful life for themselves, with or without the continuing presence of mental health symptoms. Recovery is based on ideas of self-determination and self-management. It emphasises the importance of 'hope' in sustaining motivation and supporting expectations of an individually fulfilled life."
And here is a similarly inspiration quote from Roberts, G & Wolfson, P. in Advances in Psychiatric Treatment: “Redefinition of recovery as a process of personal discovery, of how to live (and live well) with enduring symptoms and vulnerabilities opens the possibility of recovery to all ….This reconceptualisation is personally empowering, raising realistic hope for a better life alongside whatever remains of illness and vulnerability”.
What Realising Recovery and Social Inclusion aims to do is to present you with a similarly inspiring presentation that educates, develops skills, and motivates you to use them enthusiastically in your own work.
Everybody who works in mental health and related areas.
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.
Online Live and Exclusive course (for teams and organisations):
Online Live Courses typically take slightly less time than the face-to-face course on which it is based (because of less group discussion and group exercises) but they are live and pleasingly interactive. Click here to view prices.
Delegates can be anywhere that is conducive to concentrating, all together or separate, so long as they have access to a computer with a good internet connection. And as a manager, you have ‘guaranteed completion’: you only pay for delegates who successfully complete (minimum 15).
Option 2: We come and run the course in your organization:
We bring this 3-day course to your own organization for a fixed fee of $6,600 (plus tutor travel and accommodation expenses) and up to 15 people can attend. You can organize as many courses as you need, to cover the numbers you want to.
There is also a 2-day version available at $4,850 (plus tutor travel and accommodation expenses) inclusive for 6-15 delegates.

Option 3: '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.

APT prides itself on the feedback we receive about our courses. Below are just some of the great comments the Realising Recovery and Social Inclusion™ course has received.
"Amazing, the best training I have ever received in the NHS. A passionate presenter who has inspired me. Thank you.”
“An inspiring workshop that reinvigorated my belief in the recovery approach. All three days were an amazing opportunity to not only recognise how much of our practice currently accords with the model but also to draw upon the presenter's impressive knowledge and enthusiasm. Thank you.”
