The following people have kindly agreed to provide informal support to people wanting to do research into CAT who are still at an early stage of preparation.  Please contact them via the acat office.

Frank Margison
Although like everyone he is time-poor, he would be happy to give feedback on research ideas to help you take them further.  Frank has a background in outcome measures, process-outcome research, practice based evidence, and evaluating teaching of Psychotherapy, but he will try to give an encouraging response on any topic as he is keen to encourage links between researchers and practitioners!

Dr Stella Compton-Dickinson 
Stella has designed and implemented research in the cognitive analytic model in NHS treatment.  She can offer some informal help and formal supervision in developing appropriate research methodologies, writing protocols and formulating effective research questions for qualitative and/ or quantitative, mixed -methods, clinically based research.  She has experience of the IRAS and LREC ethical approval processes.

Julie Lloyd
As a clinical psychologist, Julie is currently involved in research projects exploring the use of CAT with people with learning disabilities and their carers.  She has many years of experience, being a field supervisor for trainee clinical psychology major research projects and although she has now retired from the NHS making the field supervisor role less possible, she continues to be able to offer practical research advice.  Julie’s particular skills include issues of how to get consent from people with learning disabilities and adapting research materials, as well as her knowledge of what CAT learning disability research has been done and what could be done in the future.
