[Upbeat music plays and the video displays the text, “The Following Week.” The text fades away to reveal Greg, a pilot program participant opening the door to let in Cindy, a CAT therapist. Greg appears well-groomed and is wearing slacks, a short-sleeved, button-down shirt which he has tucked in, and a belt. Cindy is holding a plastic bin with a handle and a clipboard. On the ground beside her is a plastic chest of drawers with wheels and a plastic laundry hamper with wheels.]
Greg Hello, Cindy.
Cindy Hi, Greg! How are you doing?
Greg Here, let me help you with that.
[Greg helps Cindy bring in the plastic chest of drawers.]
Greg You brought me more stuff?
Cindy I sure did!
[Cindy brings in the laundry hamper.]
Greg Oh, boy! Santa Claus. Oh boy. Nice new stuff.
Cindy I’ll get the door here.
[Cindy closes the front door.]
Greg Now, the next time you come, you won’t see all those clothes laying on the floor. They’ll be in my hamper.
Cindy So you know what we’re doing today with you already saying that. Okay, well I brought this along because I know we’ve worked on your hygiene and we’ve worked on getting something organized for you there in the bathroom. We’re going to work on getting your stuff off the floor, okay?
Cindy I got you a hamper to put your clothes in and we went ahead and got you some drawers so you have space to put your clean clothes that you keep in that basket away.
Cindy Okay? So let’s go ahead and go over to the room to set these things up.
Greg Okay. They’ve both got wheels on them, I think.
Cindy They sure do so you can wheel them on in there and it’ll be easier.
[Greg wheels the hamper and drawers into his bedroom as Cindy follows behind.]
Cindy Let’s take a look at where we would put some of this stuff.
Cindy So where do you think is a good spot to have these chest of drawers here to help put your clothes away?
[The drawers are up against a wall in the bedroom.]
Greg Well, if you look around, pretty much everything is in its place in here so about the only other place is this space here so I would say just leave it right there.
Cindy Put it there? Okay. And how about your hamper? Where do you want to put that?
Greg I want to put that in the restroom, but we got to pick up the dirty clothes. Let me pick up some of those and put them in the hamper.
[Greg begins picking up dirty clothes off the floor and putting them in the new hamper. There is a stuffed whale on the floor. Greg picks this up as well and tosses it on the bed.
Greg And pick up the fish. My Shamu. Okay, and that can come in here. I think these things here are clean.
Cindy That’s clean?
Greg Yes, I think so because this is part of my uniform.
Greg And my mom washed it for me.
Cindy Okay, so we’ll come back to the clean clothes right now in a bit. Is there anything else here that’s dirty? How about those pajamas on the bed?
Greg This one here is dirty. No, the pajamas are clean.
[Greg continues putting dirty clothes into the new hamper.]
Greg That’s dirty.
Cindy Okay. So you want to keep all the clean clothes here on this chair? We’re going to go through that in a bit.
[Greg picks up some clean clothing.]
Greg We can, yeah. I’ll just put this there.
[Greg places the clean clothing on the chair.]
Cindy Yeah, right now, we’ll come back to that. How about what you have back there, behind you? What’s that there?
[Greg picks something up from the floor and tosses it on the bed.]
Greg That’s my stuff animal, my lion. That’s Puss in Boots. I call her Puss in Boots.
[Greg picks a pair of jeans up from the floor.]
Cindy Are those jeans clean or dirty?
[Greg smells the jeans and begins to fold them.]
Greg I think they’re clean.
Cindy Okay, so go ahead and throw those up there on the chair and we’ll put those away.
Cindy And how about that on that green box?
Greg That’s extra pillowcases and sheets if I need them. I keep them there just in case.
Greg I need to do a quick—this is clean.
[Greg puts a shirt on the chair with the other clean clothes.]
Cindy Okay, let’s go ahead and go over to the bathroom.
[Greg and Cindy walk over to the bathroom. Cindy brings the laundry hamper with her.]
Greg This stuff here on the floor is dirty. Most of it’s dirty.
Cindy Okay, let’s go ahead and put that in there.
[Greg starts picking clothes up off the floor and putting them into the hamper.]
Greg And the rest of these. Okay. In the hamper and the hamper can go right over here with the other hamper.
Cindy Right over there? Okay. Go ahead and put it there.
Greg Yes, ma’am.
[Greg puts the hamper in its designated spot. Then, Greg and Cindy walk back out to Greg’s bedroom.]
Cindy Okay, Greg, so let’s go ahead and start here with this basket. You mentioned last time that you needed more space to put some of these things away.
Greg Yes, ma’am.
Cindy So I brought you these drawers in here and I labeled them with that stuff you said you needed.
[Cindy points to the labels on the drawers as she lists them.]
Cindy You said you needed more space for shorts, your undies, and just a drawer to kind of put a little bit of everything.
Greg Yeah, knick-knacks.
Cindy So let’s go ahead and go through what you have here.
[Cindy and Greg sit down on the floor in the bedroom beside a plastic hamper full of miscellaneous items. Greg picks up some cardboard off the pile.]
Greg This can be thrown away.
Cindy Okay, so we’ll put that in the trash.
[Greg picks up some clothing.]
Greg Okay, this goes back in the shorts drawer. Okay, like that. I’m trying to put them out of the way a little bit so they don’t take up too much space.
[Greg puts the shorts in the drawer labeled, “Shorts.” Next, he picks up an envelope and what look like miscellaneous items.]
Cindy Is that something that you would put in the “Miscellaneous” drawer?
Greg Yeah, little knick-knacks. You know stuff that’s keepable but not really clothes.
[Greg puts them in the drawer labeled “Misc.” Greg and Cindy both place things in the “Misc.” drawer.]
Cindy Okay, and how about these movies here?
Greg They can go up top, there. That’s fine. And then we’ve got some underwear for the underwear drawer.
[Greg begins putting underwear into the drawer.]
Greg I’ll just take the underwear and put it in there.
Greg I’ve got a lot of underwear.
Cindy Go ahead and put all that in there.
Greg More underwear. Okay, I’ve got more underwear than Michael Jordan.
Greg More underwear, underwear, more underwear. And it is Hanes, by the way.
Narrator: Greg and Cindy will continue sorting through all of the items in the laundry basket and putting things in the specially marked drawers.
[It is clear some time has elapsed.]
Greg And then that’s it.
Cindy Okay, and what are those newspaper things?
Greg It’s just trash. Well, I was looking for coupons, so I just throw them away. That’s trash.
Cindy Okay, that basket is empty. So let’s take a look at the clothes here on the chair that you mentioned.
[Greg hands Cindy the items they deemed trash from the basket they just cleared out.]
Greg That can go over there.
Cindy Yeah, we’ll put that out in the trash.
Cindy So what do you have here?
[Greg picks a shirt up from the pile on the chair.]
Greg Except this one. This is dirty. I’ll have to put it in the clothes hamper.
Cindy That’s dirty? Okay.
[Greg tosses the shirt down.]
Greg I’ll get to it in a minute. Okay, this is my pants.
Cindy Where do you usually store those?
Greg All of my pants that I have here that are clean, I’m going to put up in the closet in there.
Cindy Okay. How about those pajamas?
Greg They could go in one of those drawers over there if there’s room.
[Cindy takes the pajamas over to the drawers. The scene briefly fades to black to indicate a time lapse. Cindy is helping straighten up some clothes and handing them to Greg so that he can put them away in the closet.]
Cindy Okay, Greg, so since we’re going through this, I just want you to get an idea. Why do you think we’re doing this? Why do you think we’re going through your clothes and finding places where they should go?
Greg Well, it’s good for space, for one thing. It keeps them out of the center of the room.
Cindy How about the drawers over here with the labels?
Greg That’s fine. It’s more convenient because I go to that certain spot to look for what’s actually in that drawer. It saves time. It’s common sense to go somewhere where you know it’s going to be to get it instead of having to look all around for it because you had lost it or something.
Cindy Would it be easier for you to store your laundry once you’re done?
Greg Yes, it’s very—that’s the way it’s more convenient, you know, and it just makes more sense.
Cindy Okay, because everything will have its place and its spot.
Greg Everything will have its place and everything’s organized.
Cindy Okay, so we can go ahead and put those in the closet then or where you store those?
Greg Okay, yeah. I’ll put them in here with my other ones. With my pants.
[Greg places the pants Cindy handed him in the closet. The scene fades to black. When it fades in again, Cindy and Greg are standing in his living room.]
Cindy Well, Greg, I think we got a lot done today. Thank you for sharing and letting me go through your stuff. I know some of that was kind of personal, going through some of those drawers.
Greg My pleasure.
Cindy Okay, we’re going to want you to keep working on keeping stuff kind of organized, putting stuff in the drawers like we labeled them, where they go.
Greg Of course, of course.
Cindy And then I’ll check with you next week on how that’s going and if there’s anything we need to add or change to that to make it better or easier for you.
Greg Okay, sounds good.
[Upbeat music begins playing.]
Greg It was good to see you.
Cindy Good seeing you. Thank you.
