Trauma-Focused CBT training from the Association for Psychological Therapies, a leading provider of accredited training for professionals working in mental health and related areas. We bring this APT-accredited course (3-days) to your own organisation, for maximum cost-effectiveness, and up to 15 people can attend.
TF-CBT includes a range of interventions, including Psychoeducation, Parenting skills, Relaxation, Developing a helpful narrative of the traumatic event, Conjoint parent-child sessions, and Enhancing safety and future development.
Its overall aim is to apply relevant CBT techniques to help the young person while maintaining a therapeutic relationship with the parents as well. It typically covers a dozen or so sessions. It is not normally used where the young person's trauma has been caused by the parents.
This course aims at addressing the needs of children and adolescents with PTSD and other difficulties related to traumatic life events. Research suggests that TF-CBT is effective in helping children who have experienced traumatic events.
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.

Option 2: '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.

It was very well executed and the information was clear, well explained, interesting and beneficial … There has been relevant learning that I can take back to my team that will benefit our work practice in the future."
