This exciting Risk Assessment and Management System is designed for use by whole services and organizations, and is used by over 6,000 mental health professionals.
This empowering course will give you best-practice tools to recognize, assess and manage risks including: suicide, self-neglect, violence and sexual assault. This training gives you APT accreditation in the DICES® System for 3 years, access to online resources similarly, and is easily renewable.
The course is available for teams and individuals and can be attended face-to-face or online - many organizations have multiple courses to train up all relevant personnel. Optionally, suitably qualified professionals in your organization can also be trained to roll out the course in your organization, under license.
Many professionals see risk assessment as tedious at best, anxiety-provoking at worst, so we wanted to construct a reliable system that is reassuring and empowering, exciting even! So we created the DICES® System and now over 6,000 professionals use it. What they love about it is that it teaches the essential risk triad in an enjoyable way, and in a way that actually helps them to produce great clinical work. The risk triad is:
The training is available as a 2-day course (which is suitable for many people), and a 3-day course (which is appropriate for senior personnel or DICES® champions, for whom a greater depth is desirable).
Everyone who works with people in settings such as: Adult Mental Health, Children and Adolescents, Older People, Substance Misuse, Forensic, Learning Disability, and Brain Injury.
The professional affiliations of people attending this course include: mental-health nurses, social workers, occupational therapists, clinical psychologists, educational psychologists, psychiatrists, probation officers and others.
Module One: Core knowledge about risk assessment and management.
Module Two: Risk assessment and the DICES checklists.
Module 3: Risk Management.
Module 4: Demonstrating the risk has been assessed and managed competently.
You will gain APT's Level 1 accreditation, and receive a certificate to this effect. It is this accreditation that gives you access to the important online resources (notably the checklists) associated with the course.
You will be eligible to sit an online exam to uprate your accreditation to Level 2 if you wish, at no extra cost.
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 150,000 people having attended APT training. See APT accreditation for full details.
