Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT) Training Year 2 - 2017

The Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT) Training Year 2 course is the second part of a two year training package that is accredited by ANZACAT and is based on international standards set by ICATA for the training of CAT practitioners. This course has been designed for clinicians and mental health professionals working across a range of public or private counselling and mental health settings who wish to extend their knowledge and skills in Cognitive Analytic Therapy with the aim to become an accredited CAT Practitioner.


Participants must have successfully completed a Year 1 CAT training course in Australia or New Zealand (or the equivalent) within the last three years and be able to demonstrate this. 

Course components:

The CAT Training Year 2 course consists of eight training days that are usually offered as four, two-day workshops (see dates below), and forty sessions of CAT supervision to allow practice of CAT interventions. The aim is for participants to deliver approximately four individual CAT interventions under qualified CAT supervision. In most cases the CAT supervision is offered in small groups that meet weekly. Participants with suitable existing CAT supervision arrangements can request to continue these as part of the course. Participants who are unable to attend supervision face to face can request to participate via Skype (or equivalent internet package). They will require suitable equipment to do so (computer with microphone and camera). Participants must have access to suitable clients as well as permission from their workplace to offer CAT interventions under supervision.

Assessment involves appropriate participation in the training days and in supervision, and satisfactory completion of two assignments during the course. The first is a written case study and the second is either a theoretical essay or the equivalent in the form of a teaching seminar delivered to the Year 2 group during the course. These assignments will be discussed during the first two days of the course, and guidelines and due dates will be provided. Please see the CAT Training Year 2 Course Outline for further details. Participants must be current members of ANZACAT. Places are limited.
