ADHD training

CBT Plus, with ADHD:
intervention across the ages, from children to adults.

This is a 3-day course from the Association for Psychological Therapies (APT), a leading provider of accredited courses for professionals working in mental health and related areas in the UK and Ireland.

It is the only ADHD training that gives you access to APT’s relevant downloadable resources for use post-course and has APT-accreditation, probably the most meaningful accreditation available to mental health professionals. 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 (a) the Extended Training in CBT course, (b) The APT Diploma for working in Child & Adolescent Mental Health, or (c) The APT Diploma in Working with common mental health diagnoses.

Executive Summary:

Because ADHD is a relatively recent diagnosis it has until recently been diagnosed mainly in children and young people, but it often – perhaps usually - persists well into adulthood and even later life, where it is the difficulty in concentration that is most striking rather than the hyperactivity. Rarely if ever do adults acquire ADHD spontaneously, without having had it earlier in life, although many adults were too young for it to have been a diagnosis when they were children. For these reasons, this course importantly addresses ADHD in total, across the life-span.

In young people, ADHD is a diagnosis that can cause confusion and concern in parents and caregivers. They may already be 'at their wits end' in terms of responding to disruptive behaviour and can then be confronted with entrenched viewpoints about whether medical or psychosocial interventions are most effective – and even which ones are morally 'right'. Even from professionals. In adults it causes a parallel but slightly different set of effects.

This course therefore takes a comprehensive view of the nature of ADHD and the far reaching problems it can cause. Most importantly though, it details what effective psychosocial interventions are available for those with ADHD and also those around them.

The course covers:

What the course will do for you:

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 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.

APT accreditation is probably the most relevant and transparent accreditation available to mental health professionals, 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 each time you run it or your chosen modules (50% of the 'Online Live and Exclusive' fee, regardless of whether the course is held Face-to-Face or Online).
