From the Back Cover:

Therapy with adults who were abused emotionally, physically or sexually in childhood is difficult and harrowing. The therapist may experience frustration, disillusion and disappointment, which often give away to a realisation and admiration of the endurance and creativity which these people displayed as children in surviving such abuse. Therapists need little motivation to develop new approaches for these clients, and Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT) is such an approach

CAT is a brief, collaborative, client-centred approach which is gaining support for the understanding and treatment of many individuals with emotional and personality problems. This is the first book to present the CAT approach to such problems in adult survivors of childhood abuse, particularly borderline personality disorder and dissociative identity disorder. Practitioners in clinical psychology, psychiatry and nursing, and other practitioners of psychotherapy, will welcome this book for its

  • Clear conceptualisation of childhood abuse and adult mental problems, in terms of CAT
  • Comparison of CAT with other therapeutic approaches to trauma and abuse
  • Detailed accounts of CAT treatment of these problems and related outcomes
  • Vivid and moving case study examples which aid insight and understanding of CAT in action
  • Objective discussion of clinical issues in the application of CAT to survivors of childhood abuse.
The author and the specialist contributors to the text are all experienced clinicians who provide the concepts, methods, tools, and resources to implement CAT with these adults who were abused.
