Having worked with individuals who engage in offending for a number of years, I recognise the value and application of CAT in forensic practice in a myriad of ways. In a bid to share CAT more widely with colleagues in forensic settings, the accredited 6-month CAT and Forensic Skills certificate was launched in April 2009 (Shannon & Potter), with national attendance. My aim is to continue to contribute to the use of CAT with complex, risky and 'hard to reach' clients. In doing this, I am also aware that currently there is innovative and exciting work taking place in the UK with this client group.
Colleagues are requested to make contact to discuss and share the nature of their CAT work. My colleagues Philip Pollock, Susan Mitzman, Mark Stowell Smith and I, aim to consolidate and communicate the diverse use of CAT in Forensic practice, to the CAT community and more widely. I look forward to hearing from you at: firstname.lastname@example.org, email or telephone contact can then be arranged.
