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.
A total of seven Catalyse associates are amongst a host of colleagues contributing to Cognitive Analytic Supervision: a relational approach edited by founder member, Deborah Pickvance, and published in September 2016.
Catalyse is therefore well placed to support specialist clinical supervision to help therapists build and maintain skills in CAT. Catalyse does not provide supervision as a direct service, but you can check the list of Catalyse Associates offering supervision at the link here.
We have also held several ACAT-accredited supervision training courses. You can read more about Catalyse supervision training by following this link.
