'Extended Training in CBT' provides 66 hours of training and includes online exams and a Masterclass, leading to Level 4 APT-Accreditation in CBT if completed successfully. This 11-day course is from the Association for Psychological Therapies (APT), a leading provider of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) training courses in the UK and Ireland, for professionals working in mental health and related areas.
It is the only CBT 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.
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, CBT has constantly been one of the most attended topics of any of APT's courses. The Extended Training in CBT is the most comprehensive training in CBT we provide, and has inbuilt APT accreditation to Level 4 for those who complete it successfully.
People who attend this course normally fall into one of two categories:
1. Groups of professionals who see patients in 1:1 treatment settings, have a significant degree of clinical skill, and wish to become proficient in CBT applied to a range of conditions such as depression, panic, eating disorders, etc.
2. 'Whole teams' (either in inpatient or community settings) seeking to develop a unified level of proficiency in CBT.
The professional affiliations of people attending this course include: mental health/psychiatric nurses, social workers, occupational therapists, clinical psychologists, psychiatrists, and others working in a variety of settings including: Adult Mental Health, Children and Adolescents, IAPT services, and Substance Misuse.
The development of our Extended Training in CBT provides you with 66 hours of training spread over around 12 months.
The way the system works is this: You choose one course from each of Groups A, B and C, below, and also attend The CBT Masterclass, making a total of four courses. Three of the courses will be 3-day courses, whereas Group C courses are 2-days, so it is a total of 11 days.
Choose one of the following 3-day courses. CBT Essentials is available for individuals to attend 'online live', the others are exclusively for teams.
Choose one of the following 3-day courses. Courses marked with an asterisk are available for individuals to attend 'online live', the others are exclusively for teams.
Choose one of the following 2-day courses (different title from your Group B course). Courses marked with an asterisk are available for individuals to attend 'online live', the others are exclusively for teams.
Note, there must be a practice-gap of at least 6 months between attending your Group C course and attending The Masterclass.
The CBT Masterclass provides more depth on some of the core topics in CBT but is mainly focused on developing skill, based around the following components: listening to and making case presentations, watching video demos by others, role-play/real-play where you interview others and they interview you, and establishing a stable system for support and development for yourself in this area post course. The result is that you enhance your skill and technique, not just your knowledge. Click below for more information.
You may order the Extended Training in one order or you may accumulate it gradually if you wish.
For example, a group may start by attending a Group A course (e.g. CBT Essentials) and sitting the included online exam. Then they may decide to attend a Group B course and sit the included online exam. Then later still they may decide to attend a Groups C course, and then The CBT Masterclass.
This way a group can gradually enhance its level of APT-Accreditation.
Note: Because of the case material likely to be discussed, you must have a professional qualification which insists upon patient confidentiality, to attend this course.

"Refreshing, entertaining and thought provoking. Excellent course, at a pace and style of teaching that is designed to maximise learning. Thank you."
"This has been a very valuable experience which has allowed me to better pull the principles of CBT than I could have thought possible in such a short period of time. My patients will most definitely benefit from these skills."
