APT's unified approach to working with Psychosis, Course 1:
'CBT for Psychosis - Key Knowledge and Skills for Everyday Interactions' 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 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.)
Please note: you can attend one, some, or all of 'APT's unified approach to working with Psychosis' courses, in whichever order is best for you.
The course is for everyone who works with people with psychosis. Its purpose is to teach the best ways of handling routine, fundamental interactions with patients e.g. how to respond to patients expressing their delusions, discussing medication, responding to acute distress, etc. Above all, it works to help you feel relaxed and confident about working with psychosis so you can do the best for the person concerned.
The course aims to give participants a better understanding of the nature of delusions and hallucinations, why these symptoms occur as they do and the psychological factors that maintain them. Of central importance is the empathic understanding of what it might be like for people who experience these symptoms.
Specifically, you will be introduced to key concepts and skills for working with people who have experiences of psychosis.
All professionals who routinely see people with psychotic experiences.
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 125,000 people having attended APT training. See APT accreditation for full details.

APT prides itself on the feedback we receive about our courses. Below are just some of the great comments the 'Course 1: CBT for Psychosis - Key Knowledge and Skills for Everyday Interactions' course has received.
"Without doubt the most relevant and useful course that I have taken in my career so far. My only regret is that I wish I'd done it years ago! Looking forward to taking module 2. This course should probably be mandatory for anyone working in adult mental health."
"I must say that this is the best skills based course I have had the pleasure of attending since qualifying in 1989."
