Overview / aims
Jason has many years’ experience of running CAT groups for harder to help clients in tertiary care. He has developed a ‘dialogic’ approach that uses CAT principles in a ‘slow open’ format where clients join the group for 52 sessions whenever a space is available. The CAT process centres on mapping, finding commonality amongst client stories and maximising the benefits of a group experience in terms of the group’s ability to witness and empathically respond to trauma and endings.
More recently Jason has written about the benefits of running CAT Reflective Practice groups as an alternative to Balint groups, where the CAT facilitator moves agilely between the roles of reflector, container, reformulator and educator.
The day will be divided between these two topics with both theoretical discussion and the chance to participate in a role-played client group and a CAT Reflective Practice group.
This is suitable for:
Primarily for those with a background in CAT who wish to develop their ability to facilitate client and reflective practice groups. Those from outside the CAT world, however, would be more than welcome.
Jason Hepple MA (Oxon.) FRCPsych is a CAT psychotherapist and trainer and an ACAT life member. He is known internationally for speaking and teaching on CAT in later life, the dialogic heart of CAT, CAT in groups and CAT’s relational model of the self.
