Launch of the first issue of the new International Journal of Cognitive Analytic Therapy and Relational Mental Health- journal!

International Journal of Cognitive Analytic Therapy and Relational Mental Health

Print copies of the inaugural issue of this peer reviewed journal are now available

The first issue of the new International Journal of Cognitive Analytic Therapy and Relational Mental Health offers a platform for the growing body of work emerging from the CAT model and relational and integrative approaches more broadly. These come from many different theoretical and clinical contexts as well as different countries and cultures. The editors hope this relational and integrative focus is reflected in the encouraging array of diverse contributions in this first issue.

A common thread in the contents is a relational conceptualisation of individual and systemic mental health problems, its implications for more ‘joined-up’ ways of working, and for treatment provision.
