Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) training from APT, a leading provider of training for professionals working in mental health and related areas throughout the UK and Ireland. We bring this APT-accredited course (3-days) to your own organisation, for maximum cost-effectiveness, and up to 15 people can attend.
Some children - and adults - who have been through difficult or traumatic experiences are referred to as 'damaged'. It's an unpleasant word but can, unfortunately, be an apt one. The damage can take various forms but usually results in changes in the deepest parts of the brain, resulting in effects which are behavioural, cognitive, biological, social and emotional. Examples include: aggressive behaviour, withdrawal, poor self esteem, hostility to others, lack of interest in activities, disturbed sleep and appetite, sadness, anxiety or anger problems, and poor relationships. Although this is a disturbing list there are many children who exhibit most or all of these as a complete 'package' of apparently self-perpetuating - and worsening - problems, resistant to repeated intervention and thereby the cause of great frustration to professionals.
As the title suggests, the aim of this course is to repair the damage and so avoid those consequences.
This is a course intended for multidisciplinary teams, mainly in facilities for looked after children and foster care. There is a separate version of the same course for professionals working with adults.
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.

"I can honestly say as a Manager who has worked in Residential Care for 8 years that this was one of the most beneficial courses that I have been on. It was very well executed and the information was clear, well explained, interesting and beneficial … There has been relevant learning that I can take back to my team that will benefit our work practice in the future."
