Call for Conference Workshops

This conference has three strands within the ‘New Horizons’ theme. These are:

‘Working Inclusively: Reaching Out and Inviting In’: we invite delegates to explore how we engage proactively with marginalised and / or minority groups including BAME communities and neurodiversity following on from the LGBTQ+ theme of last year.  We have keynotes from the perspective of patient voice (BAME), neurodiversity and homelessness. Workshops can extend or add to this theme.

‘Eco-therapy’: This theme is about the relational aspects of using other methods to deliver therapy but does not exclude thoughts around the theme of delivering therapy in a climate crisis.

‘Therapist Wellbeing’: The third focus of the conference will be therapist wellbeing and recovery post-pandemic – how do we look after ourselves better? This may include techniques that involve both body and mind.

We would like to invite members of ACAT to offer workshops on topics related to these themes.

The workshops will take place in three sections of the conference for approx one hour and twenty minutes.

If you would be interested in offering a workshop then please email Ali Marfell at Alison.marfell@acat.me.uk or download a "Call for workshop pro-forma" via Event Documents at https://www.acat.me.uk/event/1292/  In particular, some things to consider are:

  • Title of the workshop
  • Presentation methods you are planning to use.  Try to include some clinical material (with consent) or an experiential element)
  • Intended outcomes for people attending the workshop.
