Providing Good Clinical Supervision

Providing Good Clinical Supervision.

A 2-day course.

The course that shows clinicians how to use pre-existing skills to provide effective clinical supervision.

Clinical supervision is a key concept that many people are unclear about. Unclear whether 'supervision' means that you should be ensuring that the supervisee is 'doing it right' or whether you should be providing a sounding board for the supervisee to develop their thinking, or what. This course clarifies it by showing clinicians how to use their existing skills to provide clear effective supervision that is appreciated by both the supervisee and the organisation.

Managing Difficult Colleagues - and Yourself

Managing Difficult Colleagues - & Yourself™

A 3-day course.

If you are a manager it is essential to have a management philosophy that is clear, resilient, and effective.

Clear in that you can have it constantly in mind, even in difficult 'spur of the moment' situations; resilient in that it stands up in the whole range of situations that worklife throws at you; and effective meaning simply that it works in real life, not just in a book. Managing Difficult Colleagues - and yourself™ provides all of that, and takes it a stage further by including you in the mix. The rationale for this is that people – you included – perform well some days and not so well on other days. For that reason we have to have a philosophy that is 'resilient' but we also have to have you performing as well as you can do … consistently.

Learning the Lessons from Major Incidents

Learning the Lessons from Major Incidents.

A 3-day course. (2-day version also available.)

For years, our customers have said they wished APT did a course with this title. Well we do now.

In mental health and related areas there are a number of 'major incidents' that can occur, most notably to do with people losing their lives through suicide, violence or neglect, but also relating to sex offending and a whole range of serious but less tragic events. After a serious incident there often seem to be obvious 'oversights' or mistakes, although some of these can be put down to the wisdom of hindsight. This important course aims to equip managers to examine such incidents and to draw the real lessons from them, while also distinguishing those lessons from 'the wisdom of hindsight'.

Psychologically Informed Environments Course

Psychologically Informed Environments (PIE).

A half-day course.

‘Psychologically Informed Environments’ is a term that is mostly used in the context of working with marginalised people, such as the homeless. There are several key ideas:

- The use of therapeutic techniques aimed at producing emotional recovery, and not just applying sticking plaster to help the immediate problem.

- To examine how organisations can be redesigned to help achieve the same aim of emotional recovery and achieve lasting benefit.

- To balance past present and future by:

• Grounding the client in the present.

• Addressing any relevant traumas from the past.

• Planning a realistic and attractive future.

Highlighting self-awareness this half-day course aims to examine some of the problems arising from past interventions and looks at current practices which can achieve the aims of PIE, namely emotional recovery.
