APT is a leading provider of training in motivational interviewing. Originally aimed mainly at helping substance misuse, motivational interviewing targets the ability to sense 'where the patient is at' and to respond effectively. For this reason it represents fundamental clinical skills which are important to know about and to master. All of the training is accredited by APT and delegates receive the relevant level of APT’s accreditation on completing the course(s) as well as APT's downloadable resources.
A 3-day course.
This course is available 'Open' (where you come to us) or Onsite (we come to you and deliver it to a group of up to 15 delegates).
Based on Miller and Rollnick's latest book, this course describes an organised way of helping people to recognise their problems and to do something about them. Principally it addresses behaviour about which the client has mixed feelings: drinking and substance misuse for example, but a suprising array of common mental and physical health problems as well. Issues from taking psychoactive medication through to eating more healthily can all be addressed using motivational interviewing.
Availabe to everybody.
This exam is available free of charge to those who attend the APT course, and for a fee to those who have attended similar training from another provider.
It is a web based exam with a high pass mark of 85% and gains you Level 2 in APT accreditation of motivational interviewing. If you don't pass first time you can review the course material and sit it again.
A 4-day course.
This course is available Onsite (we come to you and deliver it to a group of up to 15 delegates).
This is a course for people who have at least 6 months practice of using motivational interviewing (often much more), and have passed APT's exam in motivational interviewing. The course centres around three components: listening to and making case presentations, watching videos of other people using motivational interviewing, and role-play/real-play where you interview others and they interview you. The result is that you enhance your skill in delivering motivational interviewing, not just your knowledge of it. Successful completion also gains you APT's Level 3 accreditation in Motivational Interviewing.
