Executive Summary:

This course combines CBT and Motivational Interviewing to provide a powerful way of helping people to recognise lifestyle issues and to do something about them. This is important because of the current widespread recognition that lifestyle issues are inextricably linked with physical and mental wellbeing. Issues from smoking, drinking, exercise, and substance misuse, through to eating more healthily are all addressed.

Attend the course as an individual, or we can bring the 3-day course to your own organisation and train a group of 6-15 people, or you or your colleagues may be able to be trained to roll out the course in your organisation under license.

Who should attend?

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 helping their clients address lifestyle factors affecting their wellbeing.

2. 'Whole teams' (either in inpatient or community settings) seeking to develop a unified level of proficiency in motivational interviewing.

The professional affiliations of people attending this course include: mental health/psychiatric nurses, social workers, occupational therapists, clinical psychologists, psychiatrists, probation officers and others working in a variety of settings including: Substance Misuse, Forensic, Adult Mental Health, and Children & Adolescents.

What this course will do for you. You will...

What you receive as a result of attending the training:

You will be registered as having attended the course, thereby gaining APT's Level 1 accreditation, and receive a certificate to this effect. The accreditation gives you access to online resources associated with the course and access to the online exam if you wish to uprate your APT accreditation to Level 2.

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.

APT-accreditation is probably the most valid and transparent accreditation system currently available to professionals in mental health and related fields. See APT accreditation for full details.
