This CPD day, organised by ACAT's Equality and Diversity Committee, brings together CAT therapists, trainees and other interested people to consider how we can better embed thinking around inequality into CAT training, supervision and practice. A range of speakers will present current theory and practice examples where CAT is used as a framework for understanding and responding to inequalities, across diverse settings and communities.
The day will include thinking space and discussion to help participants consider how to embed these issues in their own practice, training or supervisory contexts. It will include reference to chapters in Julie Lloyd & Rachel Pollard (eds) publication "Cognitive Analytic Therapy and the Politics of Mental Health". We also hope to share resources and an update on the newly established Diversity and Inequality Special Interest Group led by Jessie Emilion.
