From the Back Cover
This book has been the leading work on administering and interpreting thematic tests for children, adolescents, adults, and the elderly for over forty years. In this Sixth Edition, Bellak and Abrams bring a new level or clarity and scientific consistency to diagnostic assessment with the T.A.T. Much attention is given to a standard method of administration, a standard T.A.T. sequence of ten cards, and a standard method of scoring. The authors demonstrate how to elicit rich, elaborate stories for the T.A.T., C.A.T., and S.A.T. that facilitate a more in-depth diagnostic assessment. Additionally, the authors provide an abundance of clinical examples and scoring protocols that take the reader step-by-step through the process of using thematic tests to evaluate the main components of an individual's personality. Of special interest in this Sixth Edition is a new chapter that shows clinicians how to balance the importance of age, gender, and cultural norms when using thematic tests.
