The Association for Psychological Therapies is a leading provider of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) training and our CBT Essentials course is available to study online. This provides an opportunity to obtain APT-quality input at a time that is convenient to you and your colleagues, and minimises the need for 'cover' normally associated with training.
APT was one of the earliest organisations to teach CBT, starting in 1982, three years after the seminal book Cognitive Therapy of Depression was written by Beck, Rush, Shaw and Emery. Since that point, this course has constantly been one of the most attended of any of APT's courses. Constantly developing, this course was one of the first to systematically teach '5-factor CBT', also advocated by Padesky in the 'hot cross bun' and Linehan in DBT. Including not just emotions, behaviour and cognitions, the 5-factor approach adds biological factors and social/environmental factors into the mix, without which many conditions would not be addressed adequately.
You will be registered at APT as having completed the course and exam, and will receive a printable certificate to acknowledge your completion. Delegates will also receive APT's Level 2 Accreditation. As a bona fide APT event, this course automatically has accreditation from The Association for Psychological Therapies. This accreditation is given weight by the fact of over 100,000 professionals having attended APT training.
We continuously monitor the quality of our training by obtaining feedback on the two key scales of relevance and presentation from every course delegate. Below are the average ratings for the last ten runnings of the 'live' version of this course.

“Without a doubt, the most relevant, inspirational and achievable course I have done since being in the team. I feel enthusiastic about applying the skills and theory to my practice. The course was superbly delivered by a very knowledgeable, competent tutor who was down to earth and humorous in appropriate places. Excellent!"
