ACAT: Writing about CAT
10th January 2022

WARNING! This event has passed.


10am to 12.30pm

A half-day online workshop exploring the process of writing about Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT).  A chance to think about the reciprocal roles that are triggered when we sit down to write, to meet others who also want to develop their skills and to share some early ideas and tentative writing.

After this workshop you will:

  • Have a better idea of what reciprocal roles might be holding you back from writing, or from sharing what you have written.
  • Explore your favourite writing styles and the kind of writing that you would like to take forwards.
  • Have a chance to share your own ideas and a small example of writing.

Who is the workshop for?

CAT therapists and trainees who are interested in improving their ability to write and those who would like to promote ideas from CAT to the outside world through their writing.

Facilitated by:
