1. Completed 8 CAT cases under ANZACAT (or ACAT) accredited CAT supervision.
  2. Completed 120 hours (approx. 15 days) of theoretical training. It is likely that this would be made up of a combination of;
  • 40 hours (6 days) of training as part of a 6-month ANZACAT accredited CAT Skills course
  • 80 hours (approx. 9 days) made up of a combination of ANZACAT approved
    • whole day workshops (e.g., by visiting ACAT trainers) , or
    • seminars, 1-2 hour sessions (e.g., journal club, case presentations)
  • We recommend that trainees keep a ‘Training Log’ in order to substantiate the training hours completed. No more than 50% should be seminars.
  1. Ability to deliver CAT to a high standard, as evidenced by presenting for examination and passing two case studies. At least one of which should be written up, and the second could be either written or presented to peers in a training day.
  2. Ability to demonstrate a reasonable theoretical understanding of CAT, as evidenced by presenting for examination and passing a written piece of work. This could be an essay in which the trainee reflects on the process of learning CAT, reformulation, etc. or an article on some aspect of CAT suitable for publication.
  3. Demonstrate the capacity for self-reflection and an understanding of how one’s own roles and procedures can be enacted in the therapy and with others. This would be evidenced by the completion of a personal 16-session CAT therapy. A shorter reformulation experience or a personal ‘Learning Log’ appraised in a collaborative therapeutic conversation with an accredited CAT practitioner could be explored as another alternative to face to face therapy for sixteen sessions where this is not available.
