'CBT Plus, with Depression' 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.
It is the only CBT for Depression training 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 and individuals and can be attended face-to-face or online. It can also be completed as part of the Extended Training in CBT course, or The APT Diploma in Working with common mental health diagnoses.
Depression is often referred to as "the common cold" of mental health - it is very common and we haven't always been very good at treating it. CBT's original application was with depression, NICE guidelines recommend CBT for depression and CBT is clearly one of the front-running interventions for depression. This module is designed to cover the relevant CBT techniques in a way that encourages you to use them subsequently and empowers you to help most people who are depressed.
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.
