Health Professionals

  • You can learn more about Cognitive Analytic Therapy by attending our continuing professional development (CPD) events.
  • You can get a first hand flavour of what Cognitive Analytic Therapy is like through having your own Personal Reformulation Experience.  This can be provided as part of your own personal and professional development (for example linked to CAT skills or clinical psychology training).
  • You can apply to train with us as a CAT Practitioner.  We accept applicants from a range of core professional backgrounds. Our two year programme of challenging but well-supported training is fully accredited by the Association for Cognitive Analytic Therapy (ACAT).
  • You can come along to Café CAT, our informal evening CPD forum, which is open to all. This may help you keep your local CAT networks alive and healthy,  through reciprocal support and sharing ideas together with CAT colleagues in the north.
  • Through attending our regular CPD events and Café CAT,  you can continue to develop CAT skills whilst fulfilling CPD requirements for your professional accreditation (eg ACAT and HCPC).
