Supervision is an important tool for maintaining the quality and efficacy of therapeutic work. Supervision also aids reflective practice which is an essential aspect of cognitive analytic therapy. ACAT’s Supervision Requirements across ACAT outlines supervision requirements at different stages in training, and post-qualification.
Two founder members of Catalyse, Dawn Bennett and Glenys Parry, developed a tool known as C-CAT to help to ensure fidelity to the cognitive analytic therapy model. This tool is available to members of ACAT and those training in CAT. It continues to be used for both training and research purposes as a measure for tracking skills in the CAT approach.
Several Catalyse associates were amongst a host of colleagues contributing to Cognitive Analytic Supervision: a relational approach. This was edited by our founder member, Deborah Pickvance, and published in September 2016.
Catalyse is not a broker for individual supervision arrangements and if you are seeking supervision you can access the ACAT listing of Accredited Supervisors on www.acat.me.uk. Catalyse is however able to develop organisational arrangements for supervision, reflective practice and consultation for teams and services. You are welcome to contact us to discuss your needs.
We have also held several ACAT-accredited supervision training courses. You can read more about Catalyse supervision training by following this link.
