Irene Elia and Alison Jenaway, 2006. Letter from the Editors. Reformulation, Winter, p.2.
Well, you may remember that we referred to the last issue as Reformulation Lite? Welcome to Reformulation Heavy! We say that, not because the articles are dense or difficult to read â€“ they are neither- but because the theme running through them is the theme of the weighty impact that the social environment has on our clientsâ€™ lives. CAT as a therapy has always kept in mind the social problems that our patients experience. In our view, this is one of the strengths of CAT and puts us ahead of some other therapies which have models that do not expressly refer to the individualâ€™s interaction with their environment and social group.
In this issue Maggie Gray opens up a dialogue about couple work and the complications of having more than two peopleâ€™s reciprocal roles active in the room; Rachel Pollard and Janet Toye revisit and update their Psycho-Social checklist; and two articles discuss the challenges, and the rewards, of therapists working with those with learning and physical disabilities. Lastly we have a taste of the recent International CAT Conference in Ireland, which we are given to understand was not heavy at all.
Do keep sending us in your articles, book reviews and announcements, and, of course, any letters or comments on this issue. If anyone would like to get involved in editing Reformulation with us, do get in touch, you would be most welcome.
