'Single-Session Therapy, and maximum benefit' is a 1-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 Single-Session Therapy 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/organisations and can be attended face-to-face or online.
All clinicians want to provide patients with the maximum benefit, but many are acutely aware that while they are providing one person with the best they can offer, they are providing ten or more others with nothing at all. And that clearly isn’t equitable, either for the patients concerned or for the clinician, who often feels frustrated and under pressure as a result. This course is designed to illustrate that there is a realistic solution to the dilemma and that a single session input can be surprisingly effective and rewarding, both for patients and clinicians. Appropriately for busy clinicians, this is a suitably short course!
People who attend this course normally fall into one of two categories:
1. Groups of professionals who see patients in 1:1 treatment settings, have a significant degree of clinical skill, and wish to become proficient in offering single session therapy.
2. 'Whole teams' (either in inpatient or community settings) seeking to develop a unified level of proficiency in single session therapy.
The professional affiliations of people attending this course include: mental health/psychiatric nurses, social workers, occupational therapists, clinical psychologists, psychiatrists, probation officers and others working in a variety of settings including: Substance Misuse, Forensic, Adult Mental Health, and Children & Adolescents.
You will be registered as having attended the course, thereby gaining APT's Level 1 accreditation, and receive a certificate to this effect.
Your registration lasts indefinitely, and your accreditation lasts for 3 years and is renewable by sitting an online refresher .
Your accreditation is given value by the fact of over 125,000 people having attended APT training. See APT accreditation for full details.
