The next Café CAT will be held at Showroom in Sheffield on Friday 18th October 2019. The Showroom 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.
Glenys Parry, Practitioner Course Trainer, will share initial feedback and experience from piloting the materials in a training setting.
Renate Pantke, Catalyse Associate and Therapist, will facilitate the evening and invite discussion.
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 ran a successful screening in Manchester earlier this year as part of a series of Café CAT events there. This is the first Café CAT in Sheffield, and we hope the first of many.
Everyone practising, training in or just having an interest in cognitive analytic therapy is welcome. 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 Showroom, “a unique Cultural Hub in Sheffield”. It hosts one of Europe’s largest independent cinemas, a fully licensed café bar, and the longest-running creative business centre in the city – situated right next to the railway station in an iconic 1930s’ Art Deco building. As we’re starting at 7pm, there’s time for a post-work snack or drink before the meeting begins.
The screening and discussion will run from 7 – 9 pm in Showroom 5 on the ground floor. You’re welcome to join us in the bar 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 https://www.showroomworkstation.org.uk/info/find-us. The venue is fully accessible.
There is a £5 fee to pay in the room (nb NOT via Showroom Cinema box office) and no need to book.
We look forward to seeing you there.
