'CBT Plus, for Suicide Prevention' is a 3-day course from the Association for Psychological Therapies (APT), a leading provider of training for professionals working in mental health and related areas in the UK and Ireland.
It is the only suicide prevention training that is APT-accredited and also gives you access to APT’s relevant downloadable resources for use post-course. The course is available for teams and individuals and can be attended face-to-face or online. It can also be completed as part of the Extended Training in CBT course, or The APT Diploma in Working with common mental health diagnoses.
There is more to working with suicidality than risk assessment and management, and having mastered those, we need then to be able to help people to build lives that are much more rewarding. It is unrealistic to think we can create lives that are completely free of suffering, but perfectly realistic to help create lives that are worth suffering for. And this 3-day course strives to achieve just that.
Some professionals become anxious about seeing patients who are suicidal, so what this course aims to do is to help us become relaxed and optimistic about seeing suicidal people, because we will know how to give them hope, and how to deliver as well as possible on that hope.
All professionals who sometimes work with people who are at risk of suicide, whether in residential facilities, outpatient facilities or in the community.
Note: the age of the people you see is immaterial, it is a fallacy that it is 'mainly young men' who take their own lives. Suicide is one of the top causes of death in young men because other illnesses are less prevalent at that age. Suicide itself however continues through the years.
Equally on gender, although some people make the point that three times as many men than women end their own lives in the UK, it is still the case that 1,540 women do so every year, a substantial figure.
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 150,000 people having attended APT training. See APT accreditation for full details.
