We are thankful to the 21 international and national scientific societies of psychotherapy and institutions that - in addition to the 9  National Associations of CAT belonging to the ICATA Federation - gave us their patronage We are sure this will  really make the exploration and the dialogue amongst psychotherapy clinicians and researchers extremely fruitful for the future of CAT and psychotherapy in general.

As a special Guest Speaker, the Scottish author, playwright, academic and journalist Ali Smith will honor us of her presence with readings and conversation on stage about her book How to be both (Penguin Books, 2014), shortlisted for the 2014 Man Booker Prize, the 2015 Baileys Women's Prize for Fiction (winner), and the Folio Prize.
