Crisis Counselling course feedback

Assessment, Risk Assessment, and Intervention, in Crisis Situations, course reviews.

The Association for Psychological Therapies prides itself on the written feedback we receive for our courses. Below is just some of the great reviews the 'Assessment, Risk Assessment, and Intervention, in Crisis Situations' course has received.

"The tutor was extremely knowledgable and informative while keeping the content flowing nicely. At no point did the training feel slow or irrelevant. I have worked in mental health nursing for 11 years and am months away from completing my nursing degree and this has been probably the most informative and useful training I have had."

Course Delegate (Online Live Course)

"I have found the course to be both informative and enjoyable and will look forward to implementing my learning within my area of practice. Thank you for such an interesting few days!"

Emily Bowdren (Online Live Course)

"I found this course the best that I have ever been on - so interesting and informative."

Kate Williams (Online Live Course)

"I really enjoyed this course. I think it has been the most enjoyable course that I have completed, and my first ever Webinar. Tutor was amazing. Thank you very much. Regular breaks, great pace and I really liked how participation was optional. I definitely respond better than being put on the spot! So that was a great skill there from the Tutor. I would recommended this course to my colleagues. Have learnt so much in a few days. Much more than I was expecting."

Course Delegate (Online Live Course)

"This was a brilliant course - I now have a time to re-evaluate my clinical and empathetic approach to crisis situations - I feel that much of it I do naturally but it is really good to have a solid, evidence based framework to inform and enhance my practice. Validation being the key to every assessment."

Crisis Counselliing

Assessment, Risk Assessment, and Intervention, in Crisis Situations.

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

This course is designed for people who have predominantly short term contact with clients, either by phone or face to face. Typically those clients will be in or approaching a psychotic episode, suffering with a personality disorder, or so distressed that they may harm themselves or attempt suicide. The key aspects of these disorders are therefore covered, and, in particular, major effective strategies for effective brief intervention. Additionally the principles behind these interventions are covered, to facilitate long term beneficial impact, along with risk assessment in such high stress situations.
