Co-Ordinator: Barbara W. Williams, AFBPsS, CAT Psychotherapist & Supervisor

The day will give time for informal networking and will end with a celebratory cèilidh .

Talk: Nick Barnes, “Being Creative Within and Alongside CAT”

Acknowledging the core need for humans to be "in dialogue" and for us to be (developmentally) working within the ZPD, Nick has been keen to utilise the relational framework offered by CAT to find ways of working alongside young people & families. Not everyone is a talker, so the focus of this work is to meet youths where they are at, rather than traditional service expectations - choosing instead media such as football, music or art. This has often covered concerns about exclusion, isolation or violence,

This talk will look to offer examples of adapting the CAT model and working creatively within and alongside CAT. It will encourage us to think together in considering what might be accessible and meaningful for rural communities including those in and around Cumbria.

Nick works in London as a young people’s psychiatrist, CAT psychotherapist and honorary senior lecturer at University College, London. He is also the strategic lead on More than Mentors, a 3-year Department of Health funded study into the impact of peer mentoring on building emotional resilience for children and young people in schools and community settings.

Leonie Sweeney: CAT Celebratory Cèilidh: Connecting to Connected

This CAT Cèilidh requires no dance experience: Leonie will provide instructions and keep you right!  We hope that in participating you will experience some of what we hold dear in CAT, ie social relatedness and embodied fun, as well as Nick’s focus on reaching out and inclusion.

Leonie is an Adult Psychiatrist and CAT Psychotherapist working in Argyll. She has had a lifelong interest in music-making and dance, especially in the social dances of Ireland, Scotland and England. Leonie continues to be amazed and delighted at how instantly these accessible dances can create a sense of social connection and energetic fun, irrespective of age, ability or of anything else that might isolate us as individuals.

Cost: voluntary contributions of £25 will be appreciated on the day to cover presenter expenses and refreshments which will be provided.

Transport: please let me know if you can offer or would like to request a lift, e.g. from Liverpool, Newcastle, Lancaster, Oxenholme Lake District or Grange-Over-Sands.
