Executive Summary:

Because ADHD is a relatively recent diagnosis it has until recently been diagnosed mainly in children and young people, but it often – perhaps usually - persists well into adulthood and even later life, where it is the difficulty in concentration that is most striking rather than the hyperactivity. Rarely if ever do adults acquire ADHD spontaneously, without having had it earlier in life, although many adults were too young for it to have been a diagnosis when they were children. For these reasons, this course importantly addresses ADHD in total, across the life-span.

In young people, ADHD is a diagnosis that can cause confusion and concern in parents and caregivers. They may already be 'at their wits end' in terms of responding to disruptive behavior and can then be confronted with entrenched viewpoints about whether medical or psychosocial interventions are most effective – and even which ones are morally 'right'. Even from professionals. In adults it causes a parallel but slightly different set of effects.

This course therefore takes a comprehensive view of the nature of ADHD and the far reaching problems it can cause. Most importantly though, it details what effective psychosocial interventions are available for those with ADHD and also those around them.

The course covers:

What the 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.

APT accreditation is probably the most relevant and transparent accreditation available to mental health professionals, see APT accreditation for full details.
