Cognitive Analytic Therapy CPD Afternoon - 12.00 to 5.00 pm

#CATinSussexNS

Our aim is to help us be more aware of how the neurosciences can inform our practice of psychotherapy and what we notice and reflect on during it, and how they can help us understand more about why and where CAT works, where it might be challenged and where it can be enriched and more effective.

Focus:

We will show how some of the findings from developmental, affective and cognitive neuroscience can be integrated into our models of psychotherapy in both theory and practice. The 3 models behind psychotherapy will give us a 3-part, triangular focus:


1. The Embodied Mind: Mind and Brain
2. Healthy and Dysfunctional Development and Relational processes that enable it
3. Therapeutic Change.

Stages and Levels:

After a brief introduction to neuroscience we will go through developmental stages and cover aspects of: communication and dialogue, the organising of experience and action, self-processes and self-agency, affect regulation, reflection, observing self, individuation and further development. We will relate this to the CAT model throughout.

We will combine input with discussion and exercises.

We plan to do this over three 1 to 1 ½ hour sessions between 12.00 and 5.00pm, with a half hour break for lunch (bring your own) and a short break for tea/coffee.
