**This refresher course is only available to those that have completed ‘CBT Essentials' and are wanting to refresh their knowledge and renew their APT Accreditation.** APT was one of the earliest organisations to teach CBT, starting in 1982, three years after the seminal book Cognitive Therapy of Depression was written by Beck, Rush, Shaw and Emery. Since that point, this course has constantly been one of the most attended of any of APT's courses. Constantly developing, this course was one of the first to systematically teach '5-factor CBT', also advocated by Padesky in the 'hot cross bun'. Including not just emotions, behaviour and cognitions, the 5-factor approach adds biological factors and social/environmental factors into the mix, without which many conditions would not be addressed adequately. It is the only CBT training that is APT-accredited and also gives you access to APT’s relevant downloadable resources for use post-course.

**This refresher course is only available to those that have completed ‘CBT for Non-Suicidal Self-Injury: There Must Be A Better Way' and are wanting to refresh their knowledge and renew their APT Accreditation.** Deliberate non-suicidal self-injury is the intentional cause of harm to one's own body. More often, however, it is thought of as the coping with intense emotional distress by inflicting injury to oneself. It is more prevalent amongst young people, though by no means confined to them. Non-suicidal self-injury is not attempted suicide. People who self-harm have no intention of killing themselves, at that point in time. Rather the non-suicidal self-injury is usually a way of coping with some form of distress. In attempted suicide, by contrast, the person intends to kill themselves. However, although it is important to distinguish between non-suicidal self-injury and attempted suicide, people who self-harm are in fact 10 times more likely to eventually end their own lives than people who don't. More than 24,000 teenagers are admitted to hospital in the UK annually after deliberately harming themselves; 1 in 10 teenagers self-harms. Rates of non-suicidal self-injury in the UK have increased over the last 10 years and are amongst the highest in Europe. Sometimes, non-suicidal self-injury is triggered by events such as: bereavement, loss of employment, imprisonment, relationship problems, and other crises, yet at other times, none of those are present, and the non-suicidal self-injury seems to be purely a very effective means of coping with tension and stress. This course sets out to give a clear and effective approach to working with non-suicidal self-injury by providing patients with something that works better for them than harming themselves.

**This refresher course is only available to those that have completed ‘DBT Essentials' and are wanting to refresh their knowledge and renew their APT Accreditation.** DBT brings together a series of skills and techniques which are powerful and well-chosen ones, for working with personality disorder and other areas. Many people want to familiarise themselves with these skills without necessarily becoming a DBT therapist exclusively, and this 3 course is for you if you are one of those people as well as if you are thinking of taking the first step in becoming a DBT therapist or establishing a DBT service. As well as covering the ‘overall concept of DBT’, it covers its ‘essential elements’ such as how to set up skills development groups, the inter-relation between the groups and the 1:1 sessions, how to maximise generalistion of the skills learned into real life, how therapists gain support for themselves, how fidelity to the model is maintained, and more.

**This refresher course is only available to those that have completed ‘Motivational Interviewing, and how to use it effectively’ and are wanting to refresh their knowledge and renew their APT Accreditation.** Online Motivational Interviewing training from the Association for Psychological Therapies (APT). Includes APT accreditation, certification, and resources. Based on Miller and Rollnick's latest book, this course describes an organised way of helping people to recognise their problems and to do something about them. Principally it addresses behaviour about which the client has mixed feelings: drinking and substance misuse for example, but a surprising array of common mental and physical health problems as well. Issues from taking psychoactive medication through to eating more healthily can all be addressed using motivational interviewing.

**This refresher course is only available to those that have completed ‘Solution-Focused Therapy Essentials’ and are wanting to refresh their knowledge and renew their APT Accreditation.** Online Solution-Focused Therapy training (also known as Solution Focused Brief Therapy or SFBT) from the Association for Psychological Therapies (APT), includes APT accreditation, certification, and resources. This course aims to introduce you to the principles of SFT/SFBT in a way that gives you a firm grasp of them and enables you to use them in a safe and helpful way. You should become at home with the approach which is often seen as a 'breath of fresh air' both to client and professional, looking for and finding effective solutions for problems, rather than being sucked further and further into the problem itself.
