'CBT for OCD' is a 2-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 CBT for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) 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.
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is where a person has an obsessive belief (for example that their hands are contaminated) and a compulsion to perform a behaviour that will relieve the distress (for example to wash their hands). Typically the obsessions and compulsions get more and more severe and may expand to include many facets of everyday life. Inevitably, therefore, this causes great distress to the sufferer and those around them, and the seeming inability to control their own behaviour simply results in additional distress and bewilderment. Usually, those with OCD realise that their behaviour is 'not normal' and this is a clear differentiator between obsessional beliefs and psychotic ones.
The aims are (a) to describe Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, (b) to describe the theory which explains how OCD develops and (c) to cover the methods of treatment for OCD in a way that encourages delegates to use them subsequently.
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.
