Introduction to Cognitive Analytic Therapy Workshop

Introduction to Cognitive Analytic Therapy Workshop

Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT) is an integrated, time-limited therapy that was developed over the past 30 years by Dr. Anthony Ryle in the UK. It's now used extensively across the UK and has been adapted for use with a wide range of disorders including borderline personality disorder, eating disorders, substance abuse, depression and anxiety disorders and psychosis.

Since 2000, the Helping Young People Early (HYPE) program at Orygen Youth Health has been successfully using CAT as part of it’s early intervention program for young people with borderline personality disorder.
