At the end of 2017 we appointed Kathryn Webb as a new Catalyse administrator. Kathryn has particular responsibility for the Sheffield Psychotherapy Practice and for managing the CPD programme. She will also share some other tasks with our longstanding administrator Frances Free, from time to time. Kathryn joins Catalyse at a busy time as we start to advertise the research conference ‘Encouraging to Engaged’, our first event organised jointly with ACAT. This takes place on 13 April 2018 in Manchester, overlapping with a two-day introductory training course led by Sarah Littlejohn and Emma Taylor in Sheffield on 13 and 14 April 2018. You’ll hear more from Kathryn throughout the year as we finalise further events in our 2018 CPD programme. In the meantime we’re sure you’ll join us in wishing her a warm welcome to the CAT community in the north.
