Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT) Practitioner Training – Newcastle-upon-Tyne / CNTW
The Newcastle Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT) Service, part of the Centre for Specialist Psychological Therapies at Cumbria, Northumberland, Tyne & Wear NHS Foundation Trust, is now inviting applications for the eighth intake of our Practitioner Training in Cognitive Analytic Therapy; a two year course from September 2020 to June 2022 leading to accreditation as a CAT Practitioner.
Cognitive Analytic Therapy is an integrative and time-limited psychological therapy, fast-growing in the NHS, which brings together ideas and understanding from different therapies into one user-friendly and effective treatment. At its heart is an empathic relationship between the client and therapist, the purpose of which is to help the client make sense of their situation and to find ways of making changes for the better. In recent decades it has been developed to treat and manage NHS patients with a wide variety of mental health problems. In CNTW, CAT is practiced across all clinical specialisms, and training and supervision is led by the CNTW CAT Service.
CAT Practitioner Training is a two-year in-service training leading to the major professional qualification in CAT, including accreditation with the Association for Cognitive Analytic Therapy (ACAT) as a CAT Practitioner. Our training programme enables staff already qualified in a core caring profession and with experience of delivering psychological treatments to enhance their understanding and skills in psychotherapy by learning the theory and methods of Cognitive Analytic Therapy. The CNTW Practitioner Training in CAT has run since 2004, successfully training staff in CAT across clinical specialties, from different multidisciplinary backgrounds, inside and outside CNTW. We welcome applications from mental health staff working across settings and organisations, as well as CNTW applicants.
Full details of the course including the fee schedule for non-CNTW applicants are available in the training prospectus here. For any queries, please contact us via CSPTtraining@ntw.nhs.uk
