Welcome from the Chair of the Finnish Association of Cognitive Analytic Therapy (FINCAT)

Welcome to the 9th International Cognitive Analytic Therapy Conference 15th to 17th of June, 2023. It will be the second time in ICATA’s history that we meet in Finland. Last time was the 1st ICATA conference at the Valamo Monastery 20yrs ago. June is a lovely time of year to visit Finland and the long summer evenings are magical.

Much has happened in the world since our last meeting in 2019 in Ferrara, Italy. During the pandemic we’ve met in different webinars and been mainly online. This conference will be only live attendance. We are looking forward to meeting CAT therapists from all experience levels. Come and reconnect with colleagues from around the world.


Welcome on behalf of the Finnish Commitee!
Helena Lönnfors, Chair of FINCAT/KAT ry
