This workshop is designed for clinicians with experience using Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT) who are interested in advancing their skills in Relational Consultation. Working with people with complex problems, multiple systems involvement and co-occurring problems, including Personality Disorder can often feel challenging, and can lead to unhelpful responses and to staff tensions and feelings of burn out. The 4Ps model (Annesley & Jones, 2016) is a CAT-informed model that was developed to assist and guide reflective relational thinking in teams. Participants will be invited to draw on their experience of consultation and to apply the model to examples and clinical case material.
Upon completion of this training you will:
- Understand how to apply a CAT-informed Relational Model to consultation
- Understand how to use simple Relational Concepts in a consultation setting
- Have practiced applying the model to clinical case material
Experienced CAT Practitioners, CAT Supervisors and CAT Trainees with a minimum of one year of CAT Training working in a variety of settings.
