This Intro to CAT is being offered by ACAT Wiltshire CAT Training which in addition offers the ACAT accredited one year CAT Foundation Training.

The workshop is being re-run following very positive feedback.  Previous delegates enjoyed the balance of theory and practical exercises with a reflective approach and found the day highly relevant and informative with very knowledgeable facilitators.

The Introduction to CAT workshop allows professionals to find out what CAT involves and to also look at the possibility of accredited CAT training  (for a full range of CAT training please click here).

This one day workshop offers an introduction to the CAT model and its theoretical underpinnings; key concepts including the unique reformulation tools collaboratively developed with the patient; and the structure and method of a CAT, to provide an experiential taster of this relational therapy.

What is CAT?
Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT) is a time-limited psychotherapy, which is a fundamentally relational model in theory and practice.  CAT involves developing an active collaborative therapeutic relationship with the patient, and is applicable to working within a broad range of presentations within NHS and other settings.

The day will consist of a combination of teaching presentations, use of clinical case material provided by the trainers, with discussion and small group experiential exercises to try out CAT skills.

Suitable for:
It is open to anyone working in a psychologically informed way, including clinical psychologists, psychotherapists, nurses, psychiatrists, counsellors, psychotherapists, social workers, IAPT workers.
