ACAT National Conference - Call For Papers and "Culture Shots"

Response deadline for workshop proposals: 5th February 2018

 

We welcome your ideas, suggestions of possible Keynote speakers, and offers of Workshops.

What would you like to see on the subject of Therapist authenticity and creativity?  Do you have any interesting clinical cases which illustrate the benefits of these factors in your work as CAT therapist or supervisor?  Could you offer a 10 minute “culture shot” on something creative, outside of your work role?  Do you have particular positive resources that you offer to clients which other CAT therapists might benefit from learning about in a workshop setting?  We are particularly interested in ideas which can be explored and practiced within a 90 minute session, and then used straight away in the clinical setting.

We aim to respond to some of the feedback from the last International CAT conference, where attendees felt that they wanted more clinical focus, and perhaps some small group time for reflection, rather than just the large plenaries.

For details of concessions for presenters please refer to the pro-forma available via Event Documents below.

Please send any suggestions to alison.marfell@acat.me.uk

To submit a workshop proposal please download a pro-forma via the Event Documents and return by 5th February 2018.  Thank you.

Alison Jenaway, Carol Gregory and Rosemary Parkinson (conference organisers)
