Three of our members are in the process of editing a new textbook on cognitive analytic therapy (CAT), and have issued an invitation to submit artwork to feature on the front cover and accompanying website. Please see the full details in their statement below.
If you would you like to submit any artwork or find out more about this opportunity, then please contact the book editors directly via their email address at email@example.com
Over the last 2 years, we have been putting together a volume of work, which will have a specific focus on developments and innovations in CAT theory and practice. The Oxford Handbook of Cognitive Analytic Therapy will have contributions from a wide range of clinicians, experts by experience, and academics. It is due for publication in 2022.
It has been important for us to keep service users’ voices and experiences central to the book. Many chapters have contributions from or are co-produced by those with lived experience.
With this in mind, we are now looking for artwork that could feature on the accompanying website and front cover of the book.
We are keen to invite those with lived experience of mental health difficulties and services (particularly those who may have received CAT), as well as those within the wider CAT community, to submit artwork that encompasses themes such as:
- The experience of receiving CAT
- CAT’s personal meaning
- Connection (to self and others)
- Experiences of mental health
- Hope, empowerment, ‘exits’
These are just a guide and we would welcome other ideas and themes.
Any artwork that is selected and featured on the OHC website will be credited. For artwork used on the front cover of the book, we can provide a payment of £250
We would like to receive all submissions by Tuesday 30th November. If you have any queries, then please do contact us on: firstname.lastname@example.org
With best wishes,
Laura Brummer, Marisol Cavieres and Ranil Tan
