'Attachment in Practice™' 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 Attachment Disorder 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. (2-day version also available.)
Knowledge of attachment disorder, what it is, how to identify it and, in particular, what to do about it, is now recognised as important for those who work with children and adolescents. In recent years attachment disorder has become recognised as a discrete clinical entity, and one that appears to have distinct causal links with behavioural and emotional problems in children and in the development of personality disorder in adulthood.
This course therefore examines the concept of attachment disorder, the mechanisms behind it and, in particular, how to identify it and intervene in a helpful way.
Knowing about AD and identifying it, is not enough – one needs to intervene to remedy it as far as it is possible. The bulk of this course therefore describes – and allows you to practise – the interventions that are available whether you are working directly with children or via others, for example foster carers.
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 125,000 people having attended APT training. See APT accreditation for full details.
