Commissioners’ fact sheet and powerpoint presentation

To add to the six factsheets already available there are now two new facts sheets designed for use with NHS Commissioners and Private Health Providers, refl ecting the questions posed by them about Cognitive Analytic Therapy. As an adjunct to these two leafl ets, we have put together powerpoint presentations that refl ect the content of each of the leafl ets and these are now available on the members’ section of the ACAT website – log on, and on your personal home page, scroll down to CAT Practice. In CAT tools you will fi nd the powerpoint fi les. You can download these and they are fully editable so you can add your own statistics and clients’ stories as you wish.

These are part of the series of factsheets on CAT, including information designed for clients and prospective clients, young people and professionals seeking to fi nd out more about CAT as a psychological therapy. Other factsheets cover research into CAT, training in CAT, and ‘What is CAT understanding’. They have been written by a range of people from the CAT world which ensures they are multi-voiced and we hope they get to the essence of what it is about CAT that continues to enthuse therapists and clients and allows it to grow, even in diffi cult times for health and social care services.

All the fact sheets are available as PDFs on the website for you to forward, print out and distribute but we have now had them professionally printed on high quality paper.

They are available in a smart folder and we would like to encourage you to use these to start a dialogue with people local to you about CAT and what it has to offer. Do you have contact with your local commissioning group? With the Board of your Trust? With a Users/Carers Forum? We want to get the word out there. If you feel you can make use of the pack, please email Maria at the offi ce maria.cross@acat.me.uk and she will forward copies to you.

Leafl ets for Private Practice

We are also aware that some members in private practice might wish to have copies of individual leafl ets as publicity material for potential clients. We are able to supply these at the cost of production - a pack of 10 is £2.50 plus postage.
