This test employs an original projective technique for presenting children with situations of concern. It consists of ten pictures of animals in social context through which the child becomes involved in conflicts, identities, roles, family structures, etc. Also included: informational material on history, nature, purpose of C.A.T., Ego Function Graph, test interpretation, use of Short Form, research possibilities, and bibliography.
Now in COLOR: This new improved edition will appeal to the child in a whole new and exciting way, enhancing their ability to relate to each and every card, leveraging imagination and thought process!
SUPPLEMENT TO THE CHILDREN'S APPERCEPTION TEST (C.A.T.-S)
This supplement to the original C.A.T. presents children with family situations which are common but not universal, i.e. prolonged illness, physical disability, mother’s pregnancy, separation of parents, etc. The picture plates are constructed like pieces of a large jigsaw puzzle, with irregularly-shaped outlines. Children who do not relate stories readily can manipulate these forms in play techniques. Also included: informational material on test techniques and bibliography.
THE CHILDREN'S APPERCEPTION TEST HUMAN FIGURES (C.A.T.-H)
In this version human figures are substituted for the animals shown in the situations depicted in the C.A.T. original. Also included: a review of the literature concerning the use of animal vs. human figures in projective techniques, a discussion of the process of transposing animal figures to human forms, a copy of Haworth’s Schedule of Adaptive Mechanisms in C.A.T. Responses and bibliography.
SHORT FORM TAT AND CAT ANALYSIS BLANKS
With this convenient fold-out chart one can visualize pertinent variables when analyzing stories offered in response to projective techniques and prepare a summary with data from all stories in view. Ego functions can be graphed on the final page.
HAWORTH SCHEDULE OF ADAPTIVE MECHANISMS IN C.A.T. RESPONSES - By Mary Haworth, Ph.D.
This checklist is designed to aid in qualitative evaluation of C.A.T. stories. It can also be used to furnish a rough quantitative measure for making comparisons between subjects and groups. Also included: a summary of defenses, content of those most frequently used, and directions for scoring.
THE SENIOR APPERCEPTION TECHNIQUE (S.A.T.)
The newly revised edition of the Senior Apperception Technique (S.A.T.) is a projective test that combines an explicit set of 17 illustrations with a user-friendly manual, specifically designed to asses the mature adult up to age 90. These thematic cards, similar to the C.A.T., focus on 10 categories which stimulate emotion, memory and ego function, in the categories of finance, relationships, and entrance into a retirement home. The S.A.T. is equally effective on a one-on-one basis or in a group setting, and are primarily used by social workers, psychiatrists, nurses and even activity directors in nursing homes or community centers (group basis only) The cards can be used in conjunction with the text. The T.A.T., C.A.T., and the S.A.T. in Clinical Use by Dr. Leopold Bellak and the Short Forms. The S.A.T.’s are in Limited Edition.
CAT H Color- This version was created based on the popularity of the CAT A Color.
The human figures are a mix of Caucasian and Asian backgrounds. This combination is very effective as the globe continues to reflect these cultures and helps the patient and or a university student relate much more effectively.
