Realising Recovery and Social Inclusion™ is a 3-day course from the Association for Psychological Therapies (APT), a leading provider of accredited courses for professionals working in mental health and related areas.
It is the only Recovery Model training 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/organizations and can be attended face-to-face or online. (2-day version 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 emphasizes 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 150,000 people having attended APT training. See APT accreditation for full details.

"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 recognize how much of our practice currently accords with the model but also to draw upon the presenter's impressive knowledge and enthusiasm. Thank you.”
