Theory and Practice of Integrated Adapt Therapy (IAT) with Persons Exposed to Trauma and Adversity: Certification Training Course
Complimentary access to Masterclasses
Accredited by the National Institute of Counselors (LKM) in Malaysia
Integrated Adapt Therapy (IAT) is a novel psychosocial treatment for addressing common mental health problems and building resilience in vulnerable populations.
Originally developed by Dr Alvin Tay (Psychologist) and Professor Derrick Silove (Psychiatrist) at the School of Psychiatry, University of New South Wales, IAT, delivered by trained counsellors, has been shown to be effective in assisting persons of vulnerable groups (survivors of trauma, war, adversity) in coping with the core challenges they face in their lives, and in reducing mental distress arising from those challenges.
With a focus on global mental health, the format of the course is unique in that it combines both didactic (3-day onsite training) and interactive learning (via remote/onsite supervision during the course of the training) to ensure that all trainees have access to regular clinical supervision from master trainers.
Following the training, trainees will be assigned will receive ongoing 1:1 and group supervision from a master trainer during which they will apply IAT with individual patients/clients in their respective settings.
“The course is taught by world leading experts and having adequate supervision helps me greatly. It’s a great feeling to see how my clients benefit from IAT. It helps me as well in some ways”
- Sanjida Khan, IAT alumni -
Taught by world-renowned experts in global mental health, trainees will learn how to match trans-diagnostic evidence-based treatment strategies to the profiles of individual clients to maximize results and compliance.
