Invited seminar for Association of Cognitive Analytic Therapy (ACAT) Youth CAT SIG
The Youth CAT Special Interest Group of the Association of Cognitive Analytic Therapy (ACAT) based in the UK invited me and my colleague Claire Regan to deliver a session on the ‘relational’ strand of the THRIECE project. This project introduced the tool of 'mapping' drawn from Cognitive Analytic Therapy to facilitate 'relational reflective practice' in one primary school and two early childhood settings in Ireland. This is the first application of CAT mapping to education that we are aware of. Findings include increased relational awareness, increased reflection, creation of a common language for relationships, improved relationships with parents, an increased sense of psychological safety and improved staff relationships.
