'The Mindfulness 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 Mindfulness Masterclass 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/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 APT's Mindfulness courses 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. Groups of professionals who see patients in 1:1 treatment settings, have a significant degree of clinical skill, and wish to become more proficient.
2. 'Whole teams' (either in inpatient or community settings) seeking to develop a unified good level of proficiency.
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: Substance Misuse, Forensic, Adult Mental Health, and Children & Adolescents.

APT prides itself on the feedback we receive about our courses. Below are just some of the great comments APT's Mindfulness training has received.
“This has been one of the best training events I have ever been on in many, many years of work and attending training. I have been particularly impressed by the tutors flexibility in approach in the way she responded to the a) knowledge and experience of the group and b) the individual and group requests for application of the learning to specific area of work. I have attended many mindfulness courses in the past but none have left me feeling so empowered and motivated to commence my own personal practice. Thank you."
"A really excellent introduction to Mindfulness which has spurred me to learn more. Frankly I achieved more in these two days than on any of the previous courses on Mindfulness that I have previously attended ... Thank you for teaching me so much."
