CAT 2 Day Introductory Workshop - offered by CNTW NHS Foundation Trust
12th March 2020 to 13th March 2020


Thursday 12th & Friday 13th March 2020

9.30am – 4pm

Provided by CNTW Cognitive Analytic Therapy Service, Centre for Specialist Psychological Therapies, Northumberland, Tyne & Wear NHS Foundation Trust

VENUE: Training Room 1, Benfield House, Walkergate Park, NE6 4PF

Fees: £150 for external applicants

This two-day Introductory Workshop aims to offer a basic understanding of the practice and theory of CAT; we will be using a mixture of presentations, small and large group exercises and case discussions. During the Workshop we will:

  • Outline what CAT involves, for therapist and patient
  • Explain how CAT understands psychological difficulties (including similarities and differences with other major models of therapy)
  • Introduce participants to key CAT concepts and methods (such as procedures, reciprocal roles, reformulation letters and diagrams) and give some opportunities to put these into practice
  • Show how CAT can be used to treat a variety of psychological and personality problems, and
  • Discuss how patient difficulties can affect the wider team, plus how this can be managed using CAT methods.

This workshop is recommended for professionally qualified staff who want to find out what CAT involves, and for potential CAT Practitioner Training applicants who have not yet had any other training or supervision in CAT.  It is designed to stimulate interest in CAT but does not by itself equip participants to offer CAT as a psychological therapy

The training team consists of three clinical staff members who make up part of the NTW CAT Development Group. Dr Jonna Siitarinen (Clinical Psychologist) is an ACAT-accredited CAT Practitioner and Supervisor currently working within West Newcastle Community Treatment Team, Dr Anna Luce (Clinical Psychologist) is an ACAT-accredited CAT practitioner and working within Newcastle Early Intervention for Psychosis (EIP) Team. They are joined by Jak Smith (CAT Psychological Therapist) who is an ACAT-accredited CAT Practitioner and currently works within the NTW CAT Service as part of the Centre for Specialist Psychological Therapies based at Benfield House, Walkergate Park, Newcastle upon Tyne.
