Psychosis Training

APT's unified approach to working with Psychosis

Course 1: Key Knowledge and Skills for Everyday Interactions.

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' course, in whichever order is best for you.

Even for experienced professionals, everyday interactions with people who are experiencing a psychotic episode can be demanding. And yet for the client these everyday experiences are crucially important to their wellbeing and progress. This is why we have developed this course: to help professionals feel more confident and effective, and to help clients' sense of wellbeing and progress.

Executive Summary:

The course is for everyone who works with people with psychosis. Its purpose is to teach the best ways of handling routine, fundamental interactions with patients e.g. how to respond to patients expressing their delusions, discussing medication, responding to acute distress, etc. Above all, it works to help you feel relaxed and confident about working with psychosis so you can do the best for the person concerned.

The course aims to give participants a better understanding of the nature of delusions and hallucinations, why these symptoms occur as they do and the psychological factors that maintain them. Of central importance is the empathic understanding of what it might be like for people who experience these symptoms.

Specifically, you will be introduced to key concepts and skills for working with people who have experiences of psychosis.

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.

Written Feedback.

APT prides itself on the feedback we receive about our courses. Below are just some of the great comments the 'Course 1: Key Knowledge and Skills for Everyday Interactions' course has received.

"Without doubt the most relevant and useful course that I have taken in my career so far. My only regret is that I wish I'd done it years ago! Looking forward to taking module 2. This course should probably be mandatory for anyone working in adult mental health."

"I must say that this is the best skills based course I have had the pleasure of attending since qualifying in 1989."
