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.


ACAT Administration - important update

The ACAT Office in Dorchester will close in December, and the ACAT Administrators will continue to work remotely.

The PO Box postal address remains.

The telephone number has changed, with the Administrators now having individual contact numbers.  To ensure that you reach the right person, please click on the link below:

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.
