We are now at the beginning of the second year of our Practitioner Course – time certainly has fl own! A big thankyou once again to all those who helped us “get off the ground”! All ten trainees who began the course last autumn are still with us, and fi rst case studies have been submitted. Last year Sally-Anne Ennis and I had strong support in teaching from Debby Pickvance and Steve Clarke, and this year we are looking forward to welcoming Glenys Parry, Val Coumont (our External Moderator), Lorna Cameron, Henrietta Batchelor and Claire Martin as external presenters.
We have also really valued the backing we have had from managers in the Trust, who now see CAT and the Course as making important contributions to the development of Psychological Therapies within the Trust. In the next couple of years we aim to develop a local CPD network along with other CAT Practitioners and Psychotherapists; we also look forward to helping our forthcoming CAT “graduates” further develop their skills, and hope that some may choose to join us eventually as supervisors and trainers!
We had a strong end of year Course Review report, and following the last Training Committee meeting on 30th September we are now in a position to re-advertise the course. Although we have not yet fi nalised dates, the next two-year course is likely to start in mid-September 2006, and as before we expect that training days will be held on Wednesdays approximately once a month (following the initial induction days). Once again we aim to recruit from professionals of all disciplines working in our own Trust, with some places being made available to staff of other Trusts – we give preference to candidates from the north-east and Scotland as it is a long way to travel to access other CAT courses. Flyers and information sheets should be available from November, with interviews taking place in the early summer, and we also expect to run another two-day Introductory Workshop in the next few months, aimed particularly at those thinking about applying for Practitioner Training. Please pass on this information to anyone whom you think may be interested but who may have escaped the eagle eye of our circulation list! Contact us for more information at: Anna.Jellema@stw.nhs.uk or Sally.Ennis@stw.nhs.uk and it will be sent out as soon as it is available.
This study is now underway. Anyone who is interested in fi nding out more about the study, and how you can become part of it, please contact Tony Ryle at firstname.lastname@example.org
On 13th July, a core of people met in Cardiff to form ‘CAT South, Mid and West Wales’. We have planned a programme of quarterly meetings and aim to
• promote good practice in CAT,
• enable and provide training, supervision and CPD and
• support a local network of CAT practitioners.
The next meetings, including presentations on ‘endings’ and ‘the body’ will be on 12 October 2005 and 18 January 2006.
