The Thematic Apperception Test, the Children's Apperception Test, and the Senior Apperception Technique in Clinical Use by Leopold Bellak



Providing clinicians with thematic tests for children, adolescents, adults and the elderly, this work focuses on the thematic apperception test (TAT). Attention is given to a standard method of administration, a standard sequence of 10 cards, and a standard method of scoring. The authors demonstrate how to elicit elaborate stories for the TAT, CAT and SAT tests, to facilitate a more in-depth diagnostic assessment. Additionally, they provide clinical examples and scoring protocols which proceed through a step-by-step process of using thematic tests to evaluate the main components of an individual's personality. This edition has a chapter which shows clinicians how to balance the importance of age, gender and cultural norms when using thematic tests.
