CPFT psychiatrist made Chair of therapy charity

Dr Alison Jenaway, consultant psychiatrist in medical psychotherapy in CPFT’s Department of Psychological Medicine, has been elected Chair of the Association for Cognitive Analytic Therapy

ACAT is a charity that exists to promote CAT therapy and provide training courses throughout the UK.  This brief therapy, which is an integration between Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and psychodynamic therapy, was designed to be used in the NHS and many of our staff have attended Alison’s Introductory Courses or taken on a patient for CAT therapy. 

Access to psychotherapy was highlighted by the recent psychiatry trainees as a reason why they chose to come and work at CPFT, so it is helping with our recruitment. 

The ideas from CAT  about how to reflect on difficult relationships with others, can be used by any member of staff, you do not have to be doing therapy.  Alison is hoping to stimulate more research into CAT during her time as Chair.
