    Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT) Supervision Masterclass 2019

    09:30 AM to 04:30 PM

    $330.00 AUD Including GST

    This workshop is for experienced Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT) supervisors who have completed the CAT Supervisor Training Level 1. The aim of this masterclass is to explore ways to effectively manage and respond to challenges in CAT supervision. We will be focusing on a range of situations that supervisors can find challenging. Some of these arise because of the group context in which CAT supervision often occurs, such as different learning styles and learning needs amongst supervisees. Other challenges explored will include those inherent in the role of supervisor, such as the balancing of gatekeeper, supportive and teaching roles; and how to provide feedback in helpful ways.

    We encourage participants to think about real-world examples that can be used for discussion and practice.
