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' and Linehan in DBT. 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.

- You will have a 'feel' for CBT: you will know why it is so-called, how it has evolved and what techniques are CBT ones and why.
- You will be introduced to the major cognitive, behavioural and cognitive-behavioural techniques in a way that you can envisage using them, and have some practice in doing so.
- You will have access to important online resources for use after the course, free of charge for as long as you retain your APT-Accreditation.
