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 organisation, under license.

This is not only a highly appropriate use of senior professionals, but it also saves your organisation the tutor-component of the fee (around 50%) each time you run it or your chosen modules.

Written Feedback

Written Feedback.

APT prides itself on the feedback we receive about our courses. Below are just some of the great comments the DBT Essentials course has received.

“Oh my goodness... where to start... Hard work, thought provoking but ultimately very inspiring. The tutor's style of delivery brought to life the previous 6 days of training and enabled me to visualise how a DBT service might work with our partners in NPS. She also gave me confidence in myself to take these skills forward into my everyday practice. Thanks!"

“Once again, thank you for really fantastic training. The examples you provide are always so thought provoking and relevant. Invaluable experience of actually running a group. Thanks very much"
