The ACAT Council of Management has responsibility for the day to day running of ACAT. Members are co-opted and include: the Chair of ACAT, the Chairs of the Exam Board and the Training Committee, Chair of the Research and Communication Committee, Vice Chair of ACAT, the Treasurer, Trainee Representative, the Projects and Liaison Officer, Administration Manager and the Public and Membership Services Officer.
The work of the Council of Management is conducted by monthly teleconference calls and interim email communication. The Council also meets in person three times a year in London, along with the Trustees.
The work undertaken by the CoM covers a wide range of topics, from overseeing issues such as the impact of regulation on ACAT, conference, appointments to ACAT, organisation reviews, Charity application etc. It is involved in the development of new policies and revision of existing ones such as the Codes of Practice in the context of legislation or change of practice from other bodies such as the UKCP. A recent example is the development of the Equality and Diversity Policy:
“CAT promotes an active engagement with difference. It therefore seeks to provide a framework for the profession of psychological therapy that allows competing and diverse ideas and perspectives on what it means to be human to be considered, respected and valued.”
The Council aims to keep in touch with members in different ways – keeping you fully informed and up to date on key decisions from Trustees and Council of Management through the Chair’s newsletter in Reformulation and on the website, and through the e-newsletter twice a year. Please feel free to contact the ACAT office with queries – the Administration Manager will either endeavour to answer this or pass your query on to the appropriate person or committee -
