Supporting a loved one with schizophrenia: CAT for families

November 30 @ 5:00 pm 7:00 pm

Cognitive Adaptation Training (CAT) is a practical, evidence-based approach for families and caregivers of adults living with schizophrenia. In this interactive workshop you will gain strategies and tools to help your loved one build independence in taking care of themselves, their spaces, and participating in their communities.

A researcher, educator, and clinician, Courtney has built evidence, trainings, and pathways to support the delivery of CAT throughout the hospital, while spearheading the use of CAT with forensic populations.
