'CAT emerged from many years of practice and supervision but not from the intention of founding the new model which eventually emerged. In this book experienced CAT supervisors and teachers reflect upon their practice and consider the relation of what they do to other models. They show how CAT has continued to grow through reflection based on extensive supervised practice and reassure me that the model, drawing on the participation of therapists and patients, generates continuing development.' - Anthony Ryle, founder of Cognitive Analytic Therapy 'This superb volume, edited by Deborah Pickvance, makes a major contribution to the development of Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT) and to the field of psychotherapy supervision in general. Although, as Pickvance makes clear, both CAT and CAT supervision have always been implicitly relational in nature, this book explicitly highlights the relational features of CAT supervision including: the centrality of the supervisory alliance, the recognition that learning takes place in a relational context, the emphasis on the supervisor's (and therapist's) use of the self, and the importance of maintaining an ongoing awareness of relational patterns being enacted by both supervisee and supervisor. Chapters present masterful overviews of a range of important areas including: mindfulness in CAT supervision, the CAT supervisory relationship, the health of the CAT supervisor, and supervision of CAT therapists working with borderline personality disorder. This book will be appreciated by CAT therapists, CAT supervisors, and both therapists and supervisors practicing a wide range of other therapeutic modalities as well.' - Jeremy D. Safran, Ph.D., Chair & Professor of Psychology, The New School for Social Research 'This book makes a very useful contribution to the field of Supervision, showing how the integrative and relational approach of Cognitive Analytic Therapy can be applied to Supervision. Supervisors of all traditions will find value in many of the thoughtful and reflective chapters in this book.' - Professor Peter Hawkins, Lead Author of Supervision in the Helping Professions and many other books (www.renewalassociates.co.uk) 'Cognitive Analytic Supervision makes a significant contribution to the literature on supervision. The first book to be written about supervision from a Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT) perspective, it brings the reader the most contemporary information about working with relational processes in supervision. With multi-professional contributions from experienced therapists, trainers, researchers, supervisors and supervisees, this is an invaluable resource for CAT practitioners and trainees as well as for those working within other models of psychotherapy. Use of clinical and supervision examples from a wide range of settings makes the material highly accessible in a way that readily can be applied.' - Linda Steen, Clinical Director, Clinical Psychology Doctoral Programme, The University of Manchester, co-author of Fleming, I. and Steen, L. eds., 2013.
