ACT Essentials is a 3-day course from APT, a leading provider of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) training courses in the UK and Ireland. Attend this APT-Accredited course as an individual or we can bring the course to your organisation, for maximum cost-effectiveness, and up to 15 people can attend. (Single days can also be commissioned/attended.)
It is the only ACT training that is APT-accredited and also gives you access to APT’s relevant downloadable resources for use post-course.
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) adopts a new strategy that moves away from the 'rational strategies of behaviour and thought change' that many people have tried and failed with. Focusing mainly on how people understand and perpetuate their difficulties through language, ACT concentrates on exciting interventions based on metaphor and paradox, with experiential exercises to show how to break free of language traps, overcome common behavioural problems and enhance life satisfaction.
People who attend this course normally fall into one of two categories:
1. Professionals who see patients in 1:1 treatment settings and have a significant degree of clinical skill.
2. 'Whole teams' (either in inpatient or community settings) seeking to add to their common approach.
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 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.
