NECAT (North East Cognitive Analytic Therapy)

Mapping mortality in CAT

1-day workshop led by Mandy Wildman, Friday 27th April 2018, 9.30am – 4.30pm

To explore the ways in which we can work with the difficult conversations about mortality in therapeutic encounters

As psychotherapists, practitioners and clinicians we concern ourselves with the human dilemmas, difficulties, fears, distress and other preoccupations that life brings. We could perhaps say that our work is about understanding the human condition. In our lives we all constantly manage the tensions between opposites, moving between confidence and doubt, belonging and isolation, sickness and health, life and death. Our mortality is often not a subject that we find easy to approach, either with ourselves or with our clients and patients, but it is woven into every part of our life story.

This study day is designed to bring compassion, respect, and some humour, to a subject that can induce guilt, shame, confusion and anger. Its aim is to allow us to feel more at ease with our feelings, more confident in expressing them and more comfortable in talking with our clients about their experiences, as they present in our CAT work.

Who is it for?
Qualified and trainee CAT therapists and other therapists with knowledge and understanding of CAT, including familiarity with mapping and reciprocal roles.

Mandy Wildman has worked in social care and health settings for approx 25 years, taking early retirement in 2013 to focus on working privately. More recently, due to both casework and personal experience, she has worked much to understand issues relating to mortality and to try to understand these within a CAT framework.
