Invitation to participate in research study

Dear Prospective Participant, I am inviting you to take part in a research study on conceptualising and working with psychosis (e.g. voice hearing) using Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT)

A suitable participant will be a qualified health professional, an accredited CAT practitioner, and have recent experience (within 12 months) of using CAT therapeutically with people who have experiences of psychosis. 

Participation would involve a semi-structured interview with myself (lead researcher). The interview would last approx. 45-60 minutes, either face-to-face or Skype interview.

If you are interested in taking part in my study and/or would like further information, please contact me via e-mail:

Thank you for your time.

Yours sincerely,

Saba Haq (Trainee Clinical Psychologist, University of Liverpool)
