This brief course offers an opportunity to learn some of the basics of cognitive analytic therapy. The format will be a combination of didactic teaching and experiential exercises aimed at helping you understand how cognitive analytic therapy (CAT) can be helpful in your work with clients. There will be a chance to see clips from a simulated CAT therapy and also time to think about clients that you are working with, using ideas from CAT.
It will be of interest to all staff working in mental health and social care settings, also counsellors and therapists trained in other modalities, the content is based on a successful 2 day course run for many years within Cambridge and Peterborough Foundation Trust, which has had excellent feedback.
