This valuable book provides the student with a short, manageable, comprehensive guide to the Thematic Apperception Test (TAT), a major psychological measuring instrument. The TAT is effective in telling the clinician how the subject views the self and the world in his or her unique way. This sweeping introduction to this test as well as other lesser-known apperceptive techniques considers children, adolescents, and adults. and gives special attention to cross-cultural issues and the application of apperception techniques to minority populations. Additionally, the interesting history of apperception techniques, sample protocols, and the administration and interpretation of the tests are included.
