APT's unified approach to working with Psychosis.
The APT Diploma for Working with Psychosis provides 90 hours of focused training - developed to help you bring the best psychological interventions to people who need them, to feel confident and effective as a team in doing so, and to be able to demonstrate your competence.
It is the only Psychosis Diploma 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.
The APT Diploma for Working with Psychosis provides 90 hours of training, leading to Level 4 APT accreditation. We bring the training to your team/organization for a fixed fee, to ensure you get a supportive group addressing the same material.
The diploma comprizes 15 days of training made up by attending five of the seven courses below. Your team/organization chooses the five and you then all attend the same ones:
To be awarded the diploma, attendees must also complete an online exam after each course.
If you have already attended one or more of these courses in the last 2 years, then you have an exemption for that subject(s), you don't need to attend the same course again. If you have already attended the equivalent of one or more of these courses from another training-provider in the last 2 years, then again you have an exemption for that subject(s), although you do need to submit evidence of the training and pay a reading fee for APT assessing it.
Please note that the diploma should be completed in not more than 2 years from the date you undertake the first course.
You will be registered as having attended the course, thereby gaining APT's Diploma in Working with Psychosis, and receive a certificate to this effect and Level 4 accreditation which gains you access to the resources associated with the course.
Your registration lasts indefinitely, and your accreditation to use the resources lasts for 3 years and is renewable by attending a Masterclass top-up day or submitting evidence of continued practice, and your reflections on that practice (to the required level).
Your accreditation is given value by the fact of over 150,000 people having attended APT training. See APT accreditation for full details.

APT prides itself on the feedback we receive about our courses. Below are just some of the great comments 'APT's unified approach to working with Psychosis' courses have received.
"I have heard so much about APT courses but have never had the privilege of attending one until now. I have to say that in 18 years working in mental health I have attended many courses but these past 3 days have surpassed all of them. The information and manner in which it was presented was excellent. My advice to anyone who has not been on an APT course is 'get yourself on one.' If you had only one course to do in the remainder of your career do this one. Thanks.”
"By far the best training course I have attended over my 27 years.”
"I have actually stopped applying for any non APT courses as they far exceed the content and presentation of any other NHS course I have been on in my 20+ years' experience of psychiatry. Many thanks."
