  "I like the C.A.T. -A in color, because I apply psychodynamic interpretation to examinee responses. I use it in various situations. I plan to continue using the CPS projective tools with examinees who (a) are likely to have emotional problems and (b) are reticent to articulate." - Dr. D, Psy.D., Claremont, CA

  "The addition of color to the C.A.T.-A provides a useful update to this important test.  The use of color should promote greater engagement of children in the assessment.  In addition, including color in the test stimuli has the potential to open up avenues for analysis of structural features of examinees' responses." - Marc J. Diener, Ph.D., Ass't Professor - Clinical Psychology Doctoral Program

"The CAT can be used effectively by forensic psychologists for custody cases and
for criminal cases such as in sexual abuse.

C.P.S. now offers a new approach to the use of the C.A.T! A wonderful film on autism depicts single parents with autistic teenagers cleverly using the C.A.T. picture cards to reflect upon and describe how the cards relate to their own lives.

With the use of the combination of the Children's Apperception Test, and the DVD on Autism, The Kangaroo Complex (the name of the film is based on picture card #4 of the CAT-A), now, more than ever, itís clear both products can be used simultaneously to help parents form a bond between themselves in group settings or individual therapy.

Child psychologists, child psychiatrists, social workers, school counselors, neurologists, developmental behavioral experts, and pediatricians will benefit from these resources.


The French title is Le CAT: Analyse des Elaborations Prises Comme Jeux (I translate:  The CAT: Analysis of the Childís Productions Deciphered as Plays). published by Groupeditions Editors (Montreal, Canada)

This book applies to the productions obtained with the CAT the analytic method which the author has proposed for deciphering the allegories obtained with the TAT and the free plays. That method invites the clinician to focus his attention on the content of the allegories; this content reveals the affective development level of the child : either oedipian, or phallic (high level anaclitic), or mid-level anaclitic or low level anaclitic. The first task is to identify in the allegory the figure which represents the child. That figure, called identity support, is habitually present in the image but it may be out of the image occasionally. Once this support is identified, it becomes easy for the clinician to guess the childís intentions and wishes and to identify the family members hidden behind the other animals. Then, the deeper meaning of the allegory becomes accessible. That meaning makes possible to give a precise overview of the child's developmental level and from that moment, to determine not only the source of his psychological problems but also the true meaning of the call for help or of the prostest which is addressed unconsciously to parental figures by dysfunctional behaviors. Each and every child psychotherapist in search of substantial and lasting results must be aware of all those data because they circumscribe in a specific and precise manner the psychodynamic ground on which the psychotherapy work must get under way and be maintained until the end".  

The intended audience: students in psychology, child psychologists or psychotherapists, child psychoanalysts, child psychiatrists, etc.

The theorical and empirical basis of the book: child development, child psychoanalysis, psychodynamics. 

The major selling points of the book: easily acquired mastership of the CAT test,  method easy to understand, great effectiveness at the clinical and therapeutic levels. 

The book is soft cover and 328 pages.
