New book - Therapy with a Map by Steve Potter

Building on thirty years of theory and practice in the field of Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT), yet speaking to practitioners across all schools of thought, Therapy with a Map sets out a therapeutic process of talking accompanied by visual word maps set down in real time on paper. Like all maps, these help us to find our way, notice when we are lost, track our route and survey the wider landscape. The book uses mapping to introduce the tools and concepts of CAT, along with other narrative and conversational approaches, and shows how the fruit of such working is the development of a relational awareness that links the connections we have with ourselves, others and the world around us.

The book is divided into three parts. Part One shows how to do therapeutic mapping step by step with explanatory diagrams and examples. Part Two explores the interaction between developmental trauma, healing narratives and the recovery of relational awareness. And finally, Part Three describes the skills and methods of CAT at the beginning, in the middle and at the end of a time-limited therapy.
