Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT) and working with young people.

Kognitiivis-analyyttinen psykoterapia (KAT) on yhteistoimintaan perustuva terapeuttinen lähestymistapa, joka soveltuu hyvin työskentelyyn nuorten ja nuorten aikuisten kanssa (15-25 –vuotiaat). Koulutuksellisessa työpajassa pohditaan relationaalisen KAT-näkökulman avulla tämän päivän nuorten kehityksellisiä tarpeita ja yhteiskunnallisia paineita. Työpajassa opitaan hyödyntämään KAT-lähestymistapaa erityisesti niiden nuorten kanssa, jotka eivät lähtökohtaisesti ole halukkaita tulemaan terapiaan ja pohtimaan vaikeuksiaan. Koulutus tarjoaa yleiskatsauksen CAT:n soveltamiseen ja mukauttamiseen teini-ikäisten ja nuorten, heidän perheidensä ja tukiverkoston kanssa työskentelyssä. Koulutusmateriaalina hyödynnetään tapaustutkimuksia, videomateriaalia, harjoituksia ja keskustelua.

Kouluttajana australialainen KAT-psykoterapeutti, työnohjaaja ja kouluttaja Lee Crothers. Koulutus on englanniksi.

Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT) and working with young people.

A CAT approach to inclusive practice: considering the individual, family and team.

Cognitive Analytic Therapy’s (CAT) collaborative approach is highly applicable to seeing teens and young people (ages 15 to 25 or thereabouts). This workshop will consider the developmental needs alongside the socio-political pressures young people face today through the relational lens of CAT.

The workshop will cover how CAT’s approach can assist in engaging young people who are seen as complex, are coerced to attend therapy by family members  and not as willing to reflect on difficulties as many adults are.  The workshop will provide an overview of how CAT can be applied  and adapted in working alongside teens and young people, their families and support system. The workshop days will include case studies, video material and experiential activities to promote learning and discussion.
