This workshop is designed for CAT Practitioners 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. CAT-trained staff can also struggle to help teams think relationally without using a lot of jargon. The 4Ps model (Annesley & Jones, 2016) is a CAT-informed model that was developed to assist and guide reflective relational thinking in teams. It was specifically developed for non-mental health teams working in the forensic system. Participants will have the opportunity to draw on their experience of consultation and to apply the model to challenging clinical situations.
Upon completion of this training you will:
- Understand the principles of the 4Ps model
- Understand how to use simple CAT-informed Relational Concepts in a consultation setting
- Understand how to guide teams to develop a Relational Formulation using the 4Ps model
- Have practiced applying the model to challenging clinical situation
Experienced CAT Practitioners and CAT Supervisors working in a variety of settings.
