Welcome to the website for the Association for Cognitive Analytic Therapy (ACAT), a registered charity. We welcome members of the public, health professionals, ACAT accredited professionals, and anyone interested in finding out more about CAT. We hope the following pages will inform and inspire and, for those new to Cognitive Analytic Therapy, encourage further interest and, perhaps, even training in CAT.

The website offers an introduction to Cognitive Analytic Therapy, a collaborative programme for looking at the way a person thinks, feels and acts, and the events and relationships that underlie these experiences - often from childhood or earlier in life.


Coronavirus - ACAT Administration and office arrangements

The ACAT Administrators will be working from home until the situation surrounding coronavirus becomes more settled.  Although we will continue to have email access during normal working hours, we will not be able to take telephone enquiries or acknowledge answerphone messages, and responses to postal communication will be delayed.  We apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause.  If you have an urgent query, please email the appropriate member of staff who will respond as soon as they are able:

Coronavirus and ACAT events

We are regularly monitoring updates from the Government in relation to events and coronavirus.  Should it be necessary for ACAT to cancel an event, we will notify delegates as soon as we are able within our normal working hours and the event fee will be refunded.  We would advise you not to arrange travel in advance as ACAT cannot offer refunds for other expenses incurred.

Please contact local group organisers in respect of non-ACAT events.


Coronavirus and ACAT training courses

For trainees currently involved in CAT training, click on the following link for information on the changes and adaptations to our training requirements during the period of lockdown and social distancing due to Covid-19.  This also includes information on the paperless accreditation submission process for the June 2020 Exam Board onwards.  Course Directors will also provide additional course-specific information.
