4. CATT Courses

4.1. Overview. CATT is a copyrighted therapeutic protocol designed for treating PTSD and complex PTSD, that was created by Dr Carlotta Raby. The purpose of the CATT training, as delivered by TPTL, is for continuing professional development (“CPD”) purposes, which is offered to mental health practitioners who have relevant professional training and experience, to enable them to use the CATT protocol to treat individuals with PTSD and complex PTSD, within the realms of their professional training, competencies and licensure.

4.2. CATT Course duration. All CATT Courses are 2 days in duration (the “Duration”), [9am to 5pm, with a 45 min lunch break] each day plus 3 hours e-learning self study modules

4.3. CATT Certificate. After successfully completing a CATT Course you will receive a CPD certificate (16 hours) of attendance in CATT (a “Certificate”). In order to successfully complete a CATT Course and receive a Certificate, you will need to complete a formal demonstration to confirm your full understanding of CATT. In addition, Certificates are only awarded if you attend the CATT Course for the full Duration. The award of a Certificate is entirely at TPTL’s discretion. For the avoidance of doubt, a Certificate does not enable you to teach nor train others in the use of CATT (and doing so would constitute breach of TPTL (and/or our licensors’) Intellectual Property Rights as set out in more detail below in paragraph 8).

4.4. Venue. By attending a CATT Course, you agree to be bound by any and all terms and conditions, rules and regulations of any venue where a CATT Course is held (a “Venue”) (the “Venue Terms”). TPTL reserves the right (at its absolute discretion) to refuse admission to, or eject from a CATT Course, any person including (without limitation) any person who fails to comply with these Terms or who in the opinion of TPTL represents a security risk, nuisance or annoyance to the running of the CATT Course.

TPTL reserves the right (at its absolute discretion) to change the date and/or the Venue of any CATT Course at any time and for any reason, in each case without liability.

5. CATT Consultations

5.1. Overview. CATT Consultations are telephone (VOIP if outside the UK) appointments for mental health practitioners who have successfully completed a CATT Course and whom would like additional guidance around adherence to the CATT model in their clinical practice.

5.2. CATT Consultations are not clinical supervision. For the avoidance of doubt, CATT Consultations are not clinical supervision. Neither TPTL nor its personnel take on any clinical responsibility for cases, and the CATT Consultation sessions do not replace the need for you to receive clinical supervision in accordance with your professional body obligations. CATT Consultations are simply designed for practitioners who have particular questions related to the CATT model, that may have arisen since using CATT in their clinical practice, where they may need additional clarification or input regarding CATT specifically.
