Family Interventions with Dementia training from the Association for Psychological Therapies (APT), a leading provider of accredited courses for professionals working in mental health and related areas throughout the UK and Ireland. We bring this APT accredited course (3-days) to your own organisation for maximum cost-effectiveness and up to 15 people can attend.
This 3-day course provides professionals with the understanding and skills to support those with dementia and the people around them. It aims to maintain the best possible quality of life for patients by building the knowledge and strategies of families to improve their own well-being and those they are caring for.
This course (a) provides information for understanding the importance of good assessment and diagnosis in helping the family develop a compassionate understanding of the condition, (b) describes the qualities you need to engage with those living with dementia and (c) gives you practice in skills and interventions you can teach to carers.
People who attend this course normally fall into one of two categories:
1. Professionals who spend a significant amount of their time working with people who have dementia, and their families.
2. Professionals who, while dementia may not be their primary speciality, nevertheless need to get 'up to speed' on the subject.
The professional affiliations of people suitable to attend this course include: mental health/psychiatric nurses, social workers, occupational therapists, clinical psychologists, psychiatrists, and others.
You will be registered as having attended one, two or three days of the course, thereby gaining APT's Level 1 accreditation in the subject(s) in question, and receive a certificate to this effect. The accreditation gives you access to online resources associated with the course.
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 100,000 people having attended APT training. See APT accreditation for full details.
Option 1: Bring the course to your organisation:
We bring this 3-day course to your own organisation and train a group of 6-15 people for a fixed, all-inclusive fee of £4,495 plus VAT. The course may run on three consecutive days, e.g. from Tuesday to Thursday or, for example, three consecutive Wednesdays.

Option 2: Live webinar:
This course can be provided as a live webinar for groups. A webinar typically takes slightly less time than the live course on which it is based (because of less group discussion and group exercises) but they are live and pleasingly interactive.
Delegates can be anywhere that is conducive to concentrating, all together or separate, so long as they have access to a computer with a good internet connection.

Option 3: 'Train the Trainer':
If you or a colleague are a senior professional (e.g. consultant psychologist) and have a talent for communication and teaching, then you are welcome to apply to become an APT-accredited tutor. You could then tutor the course - or your chosen modules from it - in your own organisation, under license.
This is not only a highly appropriate use of senior professionals, but it also saves your organisation the tutor-component of the fee (around 50%) each time you run it or your chosen modules.
