Executive Summary:

This is a course for people who have at least 6 months practice subsequent to receiving Level 3 APT-Accreditation (often much more) 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 4 accreditation in RAIDing.

Who should attend?

People who attend this course normally fall into one of two categories:

1. Professionals who lead a team of colleagues using the RAID® approach, and want to enhance their own knowledge and insight, in order to supervise or guide others.

2. 'Whole teams' (either in inpatient or community settings) seeking to develop a unified high level of proficiency in working with extremely challenging behaviour.

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: Forensic and Secure settings, Adult Mental Health, and Children & Adolescents.

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.
