The aim of this seminar is to become more aware of how the neurosciences can inform and deepen our practice of psychotherapy within the CAT model: co-regulating affect, practising dual awareness (observing while accessing and sensing implicit, state-specific emotional memories), facilitating both inner attunement with parts of the self and felt corrective, reparative experiences, that together lead to a more connected, stabilised sense of self and a greater sense of resilience.
The key learning outcomes of the day will be to use practices grounded in neuroscience to:
I will be introducing activities to practice and review in the group. These are drawn from the work of Dan Siegel, Allan Schore, Janina Fisher, Richard Lane, Pat Ogden, Stephen Porges, Lisa Schwarz and others. I will give examples of how I have practiced these with my own clients, how they described their experiences and how this helped them. I will supply some summary handouts on key concepts and information, and send out afterwards a few slides that I will use for discussion. There will also be an opportunity to discuss how all this can be applied to the current patients or clients of those participating.
This is relevant to the following groups: CAT trainees, practitioners, supervisors and trainers.
PresenterJohn Bristow, CAT psychotherapist, supervisor and trainer. Since March 2016 I have updated my knowledge of neurobiology applied to psychotherapy, through reading, training and supervised practice. Since its formation in March 2016, I have been an active member of the ACAT special interest group (SIG) on CAT and the neurosciences, CAT and the Embodied Mind, which has merged with the CAT, Trauma and EMDR group. We run seminars or learning groups and share learning resources within ACAT.
