**This refresher course is only available to those that have completed 'Trauma-Focused CBT, for all ages' and are wanting to refresh their knowledge and renew their APT Accreditation.** PTSD is an unusual and often devastating clinical phenomenon, with distressing symptoms and the ability to apparently change the personality of the person displaying it. Clinicians can be at a loss for how to respond to it, and may feel frustrated that their established clinical skills, which work well in other conditions, seem to be redundant with PTSD. This course is for clinicians who need to know about PTSD, how to help patients initially lessen the symptoms of it, then process the trauma, and ultimately head towards growing and developing post-trauma. The APT has mastered the delivery of TF-CBT training 'online anytime'; providing top class training you can access right now or any time that suits you. No longer do you have to wait for 'the start date' of the course. "I really enjoyed the course and feel that I have learnt a lot and feel enthusiastic about using my newly acquired skills within my practice." Trauma-Focused CBT (TF-CBT), for all ages training from the Association for Psychological Therapies (APT), includes APT accreditation, certification, and resources. And the APT has perfected the art of delivering it in a way that makes it appear simple and easy to apply. "Great training, really interesting and well structured." With a wealth of clinical experience, Dr William Davies presents the course with relevant stories and examples of using TF-CBT and an engaging lightness which perfectly complements the radical nature of the therapy.   "I am delighted by this course. Dr Davies and his dry wit have been wonderful companions. Will buy and undertake others." This course gives you a thorough introduction to TF-CBT, it is APT-accredited, and gives you access to important resources for you to use post-course. Whether you simply want to broaden your knowledge or become a committed TF-CBT practitioner, this course is for you. The course can be studied by individuals or whole teams and organisations.

‘Validation’ is a key skill for both your professional and personal life. In this module, we address the importance of validating the experiences and emotions of your patients, why it is such a good thing to do, and effective strategies for doing it well. Patients may find that some of the things they do appear to them to be 'stupid' or bizarre, and yet they rarely are; even the most unusual behaviors and emotions almost always 'make sense' when we look closely enough. It is wonderful for patients to be able to see this, and then work towards doing things - and ultimately feeling things - that work better for them. This module is part of the exciting Higher Order Therapy series of one hour modules. Each consists of an audio lasting 15-30 minutes, plus an exercise and resources for you to you use and practice with afterwards. The series is so named because it features all the 'higher order' factors that make therapy successful. If you examine the leading therapies they overlap to a fascinating degree, so by studying all the overlapping elements and then 'picking off' the elements that are unique to each particular therapy you achieve an extraordinary power and breadth in your ability to help others. And this is what the Higher Order Therapy series enables you to do.  If you are an experienced therapist looking at the Higher Order Therapy modules you will quickly be able to see the ones you are proficient at and the ones you maybe need to brush up on, and that's exactly what you can do here.  Every module in the Higher Order Therapy series is designed to be accessible, relevant and engaging, so encouraging both novice and expert therapists alike to develop exactly those elements they want to. Finally, don't be misled by the price; you may feel that the low price suggests these are not serious modules whereas in fact they very much are. The APT's purpose is to make the best, most relevant and engaging training accessible to as many mental health professionals as possible. Read More
