(CAT) The Children Apperception Test NEW

(CAT) The Children Apperception Test

The CAT picture card test employs a projective technique designed to reveal perceptions of interpersonal relationships and object relations.

Presenting situations of concern to children, the test consists of 10 pictures of animals in social contexts through which the child becomes involved in conflicts, identities, roles, family structures, and interpersonal interactions. 

A supplement to the CAT, the CAT-S presents children with common family situations, such as prolonged illness, physical disability, mother's pregnancy, and separation of parents. The picture plates are constructed like pieces of a large jigsaw puzzle, with irregularly-shaped outlines, and children who do not produce stories easily can manipulate these forms in play techniques. 

The CAT-H consists of human figures and situations that parallel the original CAT.

The Haworth Schedule of Adaptive Mechanisms is a checklist designed to aid in qualitative evaluation of CAT stories. It can also be used to furnish a rough quantitative measure for making comparisons between subjects and groups. A summary of defenses, content of those most frequently used, and directions for scoring are also included.

Thematic Apperception Test (TAT)

The TAT is a projective test for children and adults designed to reveal an individual’s perception of interpersonal relationships. Thirty-one picture cards serve as stimuli for stories and descriptions about relationships or social situations. Cards include specific subsets for boys, girls, men, and women. The test is useful as part of a comprehensive study of personality and in the interpretation of behavior disorders, psychosomatic illnesses, neuroses, and psychoses.
