ACAT's Annual Meeting of Trainers and Supervisors 2012

will be held from 5.30 pm Friday, 23rd March to 4 pm Saturday, 24th March, 2012 at the Hotel Russell, Russell Square, London WC1B 5BE

Please note: this event is open to all ACAT Trainers and Supervisors (including Trainee Supervisors)

Following the success of the  previous three Annual Meetings for ACAT Supervisors and Trainers, we are again repeating this event in the same sharing and open spirit as previously.  The aim of each of the Annual Meetings has been to provide an opportunity for a connective and fruitful dialogue to create a forum for monitoring and developing the key role of Supervisors and Trainers in developing CAT practice in all its variety.

It is hoped that new and trainee supervisors will feel able to attend and with this in mind we are eager to hear which areas are of keen interest to all.  The event hopes to provide an excellent opportunity to share useful ideas and practices and to engage in constructive debate.
