Mapping Mortality in CAT

To explore the ways in which we can work with the difficult conversations about mortality in therapeutic encounters

A 1-day workshop led by Mandy Wildman

Overview of workshop:

As psychotherapists, practitioners and clinicians we concern ourselves with the human dilemmas, difficulties, fears, distress and other preoccupations that life brings. We could perhaps say that our work is about understanding the human condition. In our lives we all constantly manage the tensions between opposites, moving between confidence and doubt, belonging and isolation, sickness and health, life and death. Our mortality is often not a subject that we find easy to approach, either with ourselves or with our clients and patients, but it is woven into every part of our life story.

This study day is designed to bring compassion, respect, and some humour, to a subject that can induce guilt, shame, confusion and anger. Its aim is to allow us to feel more at ease with our feelings, more confident in expressing them and more comfortable in talking with our clients about their experiences, as they present in our CAT work.

The day will use a variety of information from psychology, philosophy and literature to illustrate and explore the themes, and to consider our own thoughts and relationships with them.  Small group activity will help participants explore and reflect on how we engage with issues of ageing, illness, mortality, loss, bereavement and decline in the therapy room.  We will use CAT mapping to help us to consider these themes and to develop understanding, confidence and skills for therapeutic practice.
