CCAT Measure

The CCAT is a measure of cognitive analytic therapy (CAT) competence. It was developed by Dr Dawn Bennett and Professor Glenys Parry, who hold copyright.

The Competence in CAT (CCAT) measure was developed to score individual CAT sessions and has been used in training and research to identify ‘satisfactory CAT’. Raters makes global judgements of ten domains of competence, based on more detailed descriptions of observable therapist performance.
