Café CAT will be held at HOME in Manchester on Thursday 4th July 2019. HOME is a perfect venue for this meeting’s topic, a screening and discussion of the CAT training films. Therapist (Lisa) and client (Paul) are actors and the films illustrate the course of a fictional CAT therapy.
Kathryn Pemberton will present excerpts from this series which she directed and produced with support from a steering group of Catalyse trainers.
Dawn Bennett, Practitioner Course Director, will share initial feedback and experience from piloting the materials in a training setting.
This event was prompted by interest and demand following Kathryn’s presentation about this work at our recent celebratory conference ’25 years of CAT Practitioner Training in the North’. We hope to run another screening in Sheffield later in the year.
As part of the evening we welcome your reactions and feedback. We also invite your thoughts on how these materials can be used in training and supporting resources that may help to scaffold learning.
We’re delighted to be able to hold this Café CAT meeting at HOME, “Manchester’s centre for contemporary theatre, film, art, music and more”. It has plentiful options for eating and refreshments. As we’re starting a little later than usual there may be more time for a post-work snack before the meeting begins.
The screening and discussion will run from 7 – 9 pm in the Event Space on the second floor. You’re welcome to join us in the second floor bar outside the Event Space before the Café meeting begins , anytime from 6.30 pm.
Details of how to find the venue, transport links and parking can be found at the link at https://homemcr.org/visit/getting-here/ The venue is fully accessible.
There is a £5 fee to pay in the room (nb NOT via HOME’s box office) and no need to book.
Please note that the date of the meeting coincides with the opening event of the Manchester International Festival (Yoko Ono’s Bells for Peace, 6 – 7 pm in Cathedral Gardens) so the city centre and transport may be busier than usual, but filled with culture!
We look forward to seeing you there.
