RAID Training

The RAID® Masterclass. The positive approach to working with disturbed and challenging behaviour.

A 3-day course from the Association for Psychological Therapies for people who have already attended the RAID® course and have current experience in applying it. Includes APT accreditation at Level 3, and access to APT's post-course resources.

Executive Summary:

This is a course for people who have at least 6 months practice subsequent to attending the RAID® course (often much more), and have passed APT's online exam to obtain APT’s Level 2 accreditation in the RAID® approach.

In lectures, the masterclass provides more depth on some of the topics in the original course but is mainly focused on developing skill, based around the following components: listening to and making case presentations, watching selected videos, role-play/real-play where you interview others and they interview you, and establishing a stable system for support and development for yourself in RAIDing post course. The result is that you enhance your skill, insight and knowledge. Successful completion also gains you APT's Level 3 accreditation in RAIDing.
