Regional and Special Interest Groups

There are a number of locally organised regional groups of CAT members and Special Interest Groups (SIGs). Each group has their own programme which may include hosting speakers on a wide range of topics associated with Cognitive Analytic Therapy, and enables the members to keep in touch with others working in the locality or in the same field of work through this network. Many of these events are suitable for contributing to the portfolio for Continuing Professional Development (CPD) in Cognitive Analytic Therapy and certificates of attendance may be available for those attending.

As a non-member you are welcome to attend CAT CPD events listed on ACAT Events - this gives links to detailed programme information and on-line booking facilities. As a member of ACAT local and national CPD events are on offer with reduced rates at many events.

It is hoped to develop other SIGs for those working with Adolescents, for Liaison Psychiatry and in Later Life.
