Higher Order Therapy Series

Free Functional Analysis Training Webinar

Functional Analysis: most ‘problems’ serve a purpose, and revealing that purpose can be the key to success.

1-hour Peer Approval CPD Certificate
Recorded 17th March 2021

In this webinar from the APT, we talk about the functions our patients' problems and behavior serve for them, what fallacies exist around for example 'attention-seeking behavior', and what to do once we have uncovered the functions of the behavior. We'll look at hunches and ABC Analysis, depression, behavior that has 'built-in' functionality, and the importance of verifying that there aren't underlying physical causes. Functional Analysis is a concept that has long been recognised by those working with 'challenging behavior' but in fact it relevance is much wider than that.

Free Evidence-Based Practice Training Webinar

Evidence-Based Practice: as important as looking where you’re heading when you’re driving.

1-hour Peer Approval CPD Certificate
Recorded 28th April 2021

In this webinar from the APT, you'll learn about evidence-based practice, practice, based evidence, and how to use them to help monitor and track the progress your patients make. We are rightly encouraged to base our practice on established evidence, and yet there isn't a protocol for every condition that every patient arrives with, so we lean heavily on 'practice-based evidence' - obtaining evidence from our practice and the patient we are working with. It is crucially important to do because without it we may be heading in the wrong direction - doing the patient more harm than good - but with it we are both encouraged and empowered.

Free Engaging Your Patients Training Webinar

Engaging Your Patients: if you don’t do this then everything else is wasted time.

1-hour Peer Approval CPD Certificate
Recorded 12th May 2021

This webinar will take you through the most critical elements of engaging your patients. Even with the best tools and training in the world, if we can't properly connect with and engage our patients, we won't be able to help them. All therapists mean to engage with their patients but many have never really been taught how to do it, as though it is achieved simply through an act of will on the part of the therapist. In fact there are clear principled strategies for achieving it, and this is what you learn here.

Free Differentially Reinforcing Adaptive Behaviour Training Webinar

Differentially Reinforcing Adaptive Behaviour: a simple piece of jargon that can make or break therapy.

1-hour Peer Approval CPD Certificate
Recorded 24th February 2021

In this webinar from the APT, we talk about the practice of differentially reinforcing adaptive behaviour, so your patients are encouraged to do more of what is helping them, and less of what isn't. Highlighted in DBT but relevant and effective in virtually every form of therapy, we look at why it works so well and what pot-holes there are to avoid; effectively we focus on how to 'water the flowers and not the weeds'.

Free Consultation Meetings Training Webinar

Consultation Meetings: why you should set them up, and how to do it.

1-hour Peer Approval CPD Certificate
Recorded 17th February 2021

In this distance learning module from the APT, we talk about what consultation meetings are, why they're valuable, and how to structure them for maximum benefit. If you work with extremely distressing and demanding conditions - as many mental health professionals do - or work with very specific therapeutic approaches which need close adherence to their principles, then it is virtually certain that your work will be tremendously facilitated by well organised consultation meetings. This module shows you how to achieve just that.

Free Case Formulation Training Webinar

Case Formulation: making sense of the information you obtain.

1-hour Peer Approval CPD Certificate
Recorded 10th February 2021

In this Case Formulation Module from the APT, you'll learn how to appraise the 6 P's of case formulation: the patient's problem, pre-disposing factors, precipitating factors, perpetuating factors, positive and protective factors and of course, the plan! It enables us to form a powerful strategy to organise the information we obtain in the assessment so we can help the patient as quickly and effectively as possible. And without it, we can be very much 'stumbling in the dark.'

Free Acceptance Training Webinar

Avoiding the fatal Second Arrow: Acceptance.

1-hour Peer Approval CPD Certificate
Recorded 3rd February 2021

In this module from the APT, we'll be talking about how to neutralise the extremely destructive 'second arrow,' through a principle of mindfulness: acceptance. The 'second arrow' refers to the spiral that so often occurs when for instance a person becomes depressed and then becomes frustrated that they are depressed, which makes them more distressed, which makes them more depressed and frustrated, and so on downwards. An exactly parallel effect occurs with anxiety, irritability, psychotic conditions and more.

Free Assessment Training Webinar

Assessment: how to ask the right questions.

1-hour Peer Approval CPD Certificate
Recorded 27th January 2021

In this Assessment Module, you'll learn or re-learn how to achieve one of the fundamental starting points of effective therapy: how to conduct consistent, subjective assessment of the key factors affecting each patient. This is an essential skill in any therapeutic endeavour and is too often 'glossed over' in the often unrealistic hope that even the most distressed patients will easily tell us just what is the matter. In reality, a skilled assessment provides hope for both the patient and for us.

Free Leadership Training Webinar

Leadership: Worry not about becoming one, worry more about how to do it.

Recorded 20th January 2021

Dr Davies takes the view that the question “What makes a leader?” is much less important than the question “What do good leaders do?” and this hour reflects on the latter because when we answer that question it means that most people can be leaders when they are required to.
