Cognitive Adaptation Training (CAT) is an evidence-based psychosocial intervention using a motivational strengths perspective to facilitate someone's initiative and independence. This intervention provides in-home environmental supports to help people bypass problems in thinking and motivation, and organize their environment to function independently. Commonly used tools, such as medication containers, signs, checklists and organizing techniques, help people establish daily routines, organize their environment, and build social skills. Treatment is customized to the individual's level of executive function (better or poorer) and behavior type (apathetic, disinhibited or mixed). An online introductory training, approximately 3.5 hours in length, is available on this website.
