Call for Conference Workshops

Theme: ‘Gender, Sexual and Relationship Diversity through a CAT Lens’

Call for Workshops

Closing date Friday 20th January 2023

Many of our clients come with problems related to gender, sexuality and relationships and so it is really important for us, as therapists, to have an awareness and an openness to exploring these areas.  In the past, therapist trainings have often assumed a binary and hierarchical categorising of these issues, where ideas of “normality” are seen as the expected or preferred option and diversity is harder for clients, and therapists, to discuss.  Also, these issues are bound up with issues of class, racial background, culture and faith, and disability among others.

We would like to invite members of ACAT to offer workshops on topics related to this theme, we are especially keen to support workshops which have been co-produced with people who have lived experience of gender, sexual or relationship issues.

The workshops will take place in the afternoon of the conference for one hour and twenty minutes.

If you would be interested in offering a workshop then please submit a Call for Papers form which can be found under 'Event Documents' at https://www.acat.me.uk/event/1212/  In particular, some things to consider are:

·         Title of the workshop

·         Presentation methods you are planning to use

·         Intended outcomes for people attending the workshop

·         Try to include some clinical material (with consent) or an experiential element
