'Teaching Mindfulness in Clinical Practice' is a 2-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 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/organizations and can be attended face-to-face or online.
Mindfulness is a psychological intervention that we dream of: it works both for clients/patients and us, and its effectiveness is demonstrated not just by clinical studies but by the unusual number of people testifying to its benefit. Moreover it is a quick, simple concept with obvious validity and relevance. It fits with the thinking of those who maintain that "To live effectively and well cannot be a complicated thing, so any intervention to help people do so should not itself be complicated”.
Mindfulness has very wide application, and people who attend this course normally fall into one of two categories:
1. Professionals who see patients in 1:1 treatment settings, have a significant degree of clinical skill, and wish also to be able to teach Mindfulness to patients.
2. 'Whole teams' (either in inpatient or community settings) seeking to develop a common approach to Mindfulness.
The professional affiliations of people attending this course include: mental health/psychiatric nurses, social workers, occupational therapists, clinical psychologists, educational psychologists, psychiatrists, probation officers and others working in a variety of settings including: Adult Mental Health, Children and Adolescents, Older People, Substance Misuse, Forensic.
If you are a complete novice to mindfulness, you will know how to use elementary techniques (demonstrated and practised on the course) with your clients and, if you are committed to practising, will build up your confidence and effectiveness. So as a result of the course you will:
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 prides itself on the feedback we receive about our courses. Below are just some of the great comments the 'Teaching Mindfulness in Clinical Practice' course 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."
