Procedure

During data assessment by means of the CAT-SCREEN, children and adolescents are asked to answer by choosing the specific response that fits best to their own personal experiences. Questions and instructions are straightforward and easy to understand. Necessary instructions are included, thus a supervisor does not need to be continuously present.

Completion time varies between 10 and 20 minutes depending on age.
The opening screen of the program shows the cat “Lilli” and the dog “Tom”. All questions are answered by clicking the appropriate response (touch screen monitor). The questions are presented on the screen and played as sound files. It is always possible to return to the previous question. All questions have to be answered before starting the analyses.
