In this video Dr Martina Paglia talks about Cognitive Analytic Therapy. Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT) is considered a focused, time-limited psychology. Clients are typically seen for 16-24 weeks. It is possible to use CAT for brief therapy (6 sessions) since it utilises a focused and collaborative approach with the client. CAT combines ideas from Cognitive Behavioural Therapies, to collaboratively examine the way a person thinks, feels and acts. CAT explores the relationships and events in a person’s life that underlie these experiences.
