Reformulation - the newsletter for the Association for Cognitive Analytic Therapy



is committed to upholding a broadly based view of the Cognitive Analytic approach and developments within CAT.  Reformulation considers articles on CAT practice and theory, as well as debates, letters, poems, book reviews, art works and adverts relevant to CAT.    Contributions by users of CAT are particularly welcome.  Views expressed by writers are their own and do not necessarily reflect the personal views of the editors or ACAT.  Editors encourage exchange and debate between differing points of view and for this reason invite readers to respond to articles by writing letters to the Editors with a view to publication.


Reformulation is published twice a year in June and December and is free to ACAT members.  Articles or items for submission on any aspect of CAT (between 250 and 2,000 words) or advertisement for any CAT event should be submitted electronically via ACAT to  Articles are only accepted at the discretion of the editors.  The Editors cannot guarantee that a manuscript accepted for publication will be published in any particular issue of the Journal.
