CAT, Neurosciences & the Self - offered by the Somerset Partnership NHS Foundation Trust
21st July 2017

WARNING! This event has passed.

The CAT Service in Somerset Partnership NHS Foundation Trust are hosting on a CPD Day on July 21st in The Sheppey Room, The Exchange, Express Park, Bristol Road, Bridgwater, TA6 4RR  from 09:30 to 16:00.

The day will be taught  by Dr Jason Hepple, CAT Psychotherapist.  He will spend the morning looking at some ideas from modern neuroscience that consider psychotherapy as a means of reprocessing emotional trauma and see how these relate to CAT.  In the afternoon he will ask you to consider CAT’s model of the self.  What does CAT make of the unconscious?  What is semiotics all about and is it different from memory?  

The day will serve as both an update and also a chance to help develop the CAT model through group dialogue and exercises.

Learning outcomes

By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:

·    Consider the role of emotional reprocessing in psychotherapy

·    Take account of advances in neuroscience regarding memory functioning and arousal

·    Think about a more relational model of the self that is in keeping with CAT
