Preventing PTSD in Survivors of Traumas, at work and elsewhere training

Preventing PTSD in Survivors of Traumas, at work and elsewhere.

'Preventing PTSD in Survivors of Traumas, at work and elsewhere' is a 3-day course from the Association for Psychological Therapies (APT), a leading provider of accredited courses for professionals working in mental health and related areas in the UK and Ireland.

It is the only course on this topic that is APT-accredited and also gives you access to APT’s relevant downloadable resources for use post-course. The course is available for teams/organisations and can be attended face-to-face or online. (2-day version also available.)

Executive Summary:

The focus of this course is to provide an overall plan for post-incident management – to prevent major long-term effects taking hold. It is possible that the 'therapy' you do shortly following an incident may be helpful for ever.

The course is intended for both of two purposes: (a) where a major incident has occurred at work, e.g. an assault, a suicide, etc and (b) where a major incident has occurred in the locality, e.g. a factory explosion. It is not about treating PTSD, it is about preventing it. This is a difficult area and one where there are few established guidelines. We are therefore pleased to have built a well received input to address this very important topic.

Who should attend:

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

1. Professionals who see patients in 1:1 treatment settings and have a significant degree of clinical skill.

2. 'Whole teams' (either in inpatient or community settings) seeking to have a common approach.

The course covers:

The 3 phases to excellent organisational support:

What this course will do for you:

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.

Your accreditation is given value by the fact of over 100,000 people having attended APT training. See APT accreditation for full details.

Option 3: 'Train the Trainer':

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.

This is not only a highly appropriate use of senior professionals, but it also saves your organisation the tutor-component of the fee (around 50%) each time you run it or your chosen modules.

Written Feedback

Written Feedback.

APT prides itself on the feedback we receive about our courses. Below are just some of the great comments the Preventing PTSD in Survivors of Traumas, at work and elsewhere course has received.

"The tutor successfully completed the almost unheard of task of providing excellent, informative training to a group of very tricky psychologists! He was interesting, knowledgeable and greatly added to our understanding. He represented APT very, very well and he has increased my likelihood of using APT again.”

The best course I have been on in years. I feel empowered to make a change.”
