'The DICES® Masterclass' 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 Masterclass training for the DICES® Risk Assessment and Management System 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.
This is a course for people who have at least 6 months practice subsequent to receiving Level 3 APT-Accreditation (often much more). In lectures, the masterclass provides more depth on some of the topics in the DICES® Risk Assessment and Management System course but is mainly focused on developing skill, based around the following components: listening to and making case presentations, watching video demos by others, role-play/real-play where you interview others and they interview you, and establishing a stable system for support and development for yourself in this area post course. The result is that you enhance your skill and technique, not just your knowledge. Successful completion also gains you APT's Level 4 accreditation in the subject.
People who attend this course normally fall into one of two categories:
1. Professionals who lead a team of colleagues using the DICES® Risk Assessment and Management System, and want to enhance their own knowledge and insight, in order to supervise or guide others.
2. 'Whole teams' (either in inpatient or community settings) seeking to develop a unified high level of proficiency in using the DICES® Risk Assessment and Management System.
The professional affiliations of people attending this course include: mental health/psychiatric nurses, social workers, occupational therapists, clinical psychologists, psychiatrists, probation officers and others working in a variety of settings including: Forensic and Secure settings, Adult Mental Health, and Children & Adolescents.
