November/December 2001Vol. 2, No. 6Cognitive Analytic Therapy for Adult Survivors of Childhood Abuse: Approaches to Treatment and Case

Pollock, P. H. John Wiley and Sons Inc., New York, NY. 2001. 332 pp. $64.95. Paperback.

Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT) is a collaborative, client-centered approach to psychotherapy. In applying CAT, a patient's problems and difficulties are reconstructed in written and diagrammatic descriptions that provide a new basis for self-reflection and are used by therapists to gain trust and enter into intense therapeutic relationships. The author presents CAT as an approach to treat adults who were abused emotionally, physically, or sexually in childhood. Case study examples, accounts of CAT treatments and related outcomes, and comparison of CAT with other therapeutic approaches to trauma and abuse are included.
