Early Intervention Training

APT's unified approach to working with Psychosis

Module 3: Early Intervention.

A 3-day course for 6-15 people. 2-day version also available. (Please note: you can attend one, some, or all of 'APT's unified approach to working with Psychosis' modules, in whichever order is best for you.)

Executive Summary:

Tragically, some people embark on a psychotic career of: disturbed adolescence ... psychotic breakdown ... recovery ... relapse. A sequence lasting a lifetime, through repeated disturbed delusional states and ending in a depressed, inactive and un-motivated state. 'Early Intervention' strategies recently developed and still developing, aim to nip this sequence in the bud and to harry it at every stage. And, wonderfully, the results of such interventions appear to be very promising indeed.

It was to bring these strategies to mainstream clinical practice that we developed this course.

The course covers:

What this course will do for you:

The aims of this course are simple. Namely: to acquaint you with the concepts and skills that enable you to implement early intervention strategies; to enable you to review and develop your early intervention service if you have one; to motivate and enable you to develop one if you haven't. The overarching aim is to be able to (a) help vulnerable adolescents so they never become psychotic, (b) intervene intensively with people who have a first psychotic episode so they don't have a second and (c) spot impending relapse and intervene to prevent it. These are what the course strives for.

What you receive as a result of attending the training:

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.

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 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 'Module 3: Early Intervention' course has received.

"I have actually stopped applying for any non APT courses as they far exceed the content and presentation of any other NHS course I have been on in my 20+ years' experience of psychiatry. Many thanks."

"I have heard so much about APT courses but have never had the privilege of attending one until now. I have to say that in 18 years working in mental health I have attended many courses but these past 3 days have surpassed all of them. The information and manner in which it was presented was excellent. My advice to anyone who has not been on an APT course is 'get yourself on one.' If you had only one course to do in the remainder of your career do this one. Thanks.”
