A 1-day workshop led by Ruth Carson and Uma Patel

Date: Monday 6th February 2017
Time: 9:30am to 4:30pm
Venue: Dalton Ellis, Manchester

Who is it for?

CAT practitioners and psychotherapists. Trainee CAT practitioners are also welcome to attend.

The workshop aims:

  • To develop skills and confidence to run CAT groups;
  • To introduce an overview of the group formats;
  • To focus on a 16 weeks group format that includes mini reformulations and also a group format that is a longer open CAT group based on the facilitators’ experience of running an open group for health psychology;
  • Participants will be asked to consider the CAT tools they already use such as the use of reformulation and SDR; they will be asked to consider how they may adapt these to their own group format and ideas will be shared for endings and goodbye letters;
  • The workshop will highlight the flexibility of adapting CAT in groups to the area in which you work and the client group;
  • To practice facilitating groups – workshop participants will be invited to take part in role play and to use anonymised clinical material and/or experiences.
