Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT) is a psychological therapy with a strong relational focus. The approach has multiple influences, including object relations and social developmental theory, and attempts to make sense of individuals’ difficulties in terms of recurrent interpersonal or relational patterns within their lives. The model concerns itself with the way we relate both to others and ourselves, and the varying roles we occupy within these relationships. CAT has been used with a wide variety of psychological difficulties including psychosis. Research on CAT for psychosis is so far limited, but receiving increasing attention, and occurs alongside a growing interest from clinicians and services. The current symposium will provide an introduction to CAT, its use with individuals who are struggling with experiences of psychosis, and recent research concerning the use of CAT in the context of psychosis.
