Children's Apperception Test (Animals, Humans)

Availability: 5 C.A.T., 1 C.A.T.-H, 1 C.A.T.-A
Age: Children
Authors: Leopold Bellak, David M. Abrams
Administration: Individual or group
Consumables: N/A
Purpose: The CAT is used to assess personality, level of maturity, and, often, psychological health. The theory is that a child's responses to a series of drawings of animals (C.A.T.-A) or humans (C.A.T.-H) in familiar situations are likely to reveal significant aspects of a child's personality. Some of these dimensions of personality include level of reality testing and judgment, control and regulation of drives, defenses, conflicts, and level of autonomy.
Description: The CAT, developed by psychiatrist and psychologist Leopold Bellak and Sonya Sorel Bellak and first published in 1949, is based on the picture-story test called the Thematic Apperception Test (TAT). The TAT, created by psychologist Henry A. Murray for children (ten years old and older) as well as adults, uses a standard series of 31 picture cards in assessing perception of interpersonal relationships. The cards, which portray humans in a variety of common situations, are used to stimulate stories or descriptions (orally or in writing) about relationships or social situations and can help identify dominant drives, emotions, sentiments, conflicts and complexes. The examiner summarizes and interprets the stories in light of certain common psychological themes.

Consumables:  CCAPS-62 and CCAPS-34 available in CCAPS manual
Purpose: Constructed to assess psychological symptoms and distress in college students.

Clinicians find the range of items under each subscale clinically useful during initial assessment and at termination as a useful check on treatment effects.
All items of the CCAPS-34 are present in CCAPS-62 under the same subscales. The CCAPS-34 does not have a Family Distress subscale and the Substance Use subscale of the CCAPS-62 is renamed Alcohol Use in the CCAPS-34 because all subscale items refer to alcohol. The CCAPS-34 takes approximately 2-3 minutes to complete, can be used as a brief assessment instrument at any point in treatment and, due to its brevity can be used for repeated measurements of clients at every session, a specific interval, or on a calendar basis.

Research supports the multiple clinical and empirical applications of the d2 Test. Now available for the first time with an English manual, including norms and correlations, this user-friendly test is gaining increasing recognition in the US. This test belongs in every researcher's and clinician's test repertoire, especially when the assessment of attentional capabilities has to be balanced against cost-effectiveness.

Goodenough-Harris Drawing Test

Availability: 1 Manual
Age: 3-15
Authors: Florence L. Goodenough and Dale B. Harris
Administration: Individual or group
Consumables: Response form
Purpose: The purpose of the test is to assist professionals in inferring children's cognitive developmental levels with little or no influence of other factors such as language barriers or special needs. Any other uses of the test are merely projective and are not endorsed by the first creator.
Description: Test administration involves the administrator requesting children to complete three individual drawings on separate pieces of paper. Children are asked to draw a man, a woman, and themselves. No further instructions are given and the child is free to make the drawing in whichever way he/she would like. There is no right or wrong type of drawing, although the child must make a drawing of a whole person each time — i.e. head to feet, not just the face. The test has no time limit; however, children rarely take longer than about 10 or 15 minutes to complete all three drawings. Harris's book (1963) provides scoring scales which are used to examine and score the child's drawings. The test is completely non-invasive and non-threatening to children, which is part of its appeal.

Gordon Diagnostic System (GDS)

Availability: 1device
Age: 4-16
Authors: Michael Gordon
Administration: Individual
Consumables: Record Form
Purpose: this device aids in the diagnosis of attention deficits, especially Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). It provides reliable, objective information about an individual’s ability to sustain attention and exert self-control. This practical, reliable, and well-researched device enhances the accuracy and relevance of a comprehensive evaluation for attention deficits and impulsiveness.
Description: The GDS is a microprocessor-based, portable unit which administers a series of game-like tasks. The Vigilance Task yields data regarding an individual's ability to focus and maintain attention over time and in the absence of feedback. A series of digits flash, one at a time, on a electronic display. The subject is told to press a button every time a "1" is followed by a "9". The GDS records the number of correct responses, incorrect responses, and failures to respond to the "1/9" combination. A more complicated version of this paradigm designed for older children and adults (the Distractibility Test) flashes irrelevant digits on either side of the column that displays the target stimuli. For the testing of younger children the GDS contains a "1" mode which requires the child to press the button only upon appearance of a "1".

House-Tree-Person Projective Drawing Technique

Availability: 1 Manual and Interpretive Guide, 1 Clinical Research Manual
Age: <8 years
Authors: John N. Buck, W.L. Warren, & Emmanuel F. Hammer
Administration: Individual or group
Consumables: N/A
Purpose: The task can be viewed as an initial behavior sample that allows the clinician to assess an individual’s reactions to a fairly unstructured situation. For diagnostic purposes, the H-T-P provides information which, when linked with other interview and assessment tools, can reveal an individual’s general conflicts and concerns as well as specific aspects of the environment that he or she finds troublesome. In ongoing therapy, projective drawings can reflect overall changes in an individual’s psychological state.
Description: For over 50 years, clinicians have used the House-Tree-Person (H-T-P) projective drawing technique to elicit information about how an individual experiences the self in relation to others and to the home environment. As with all projective techniques, the H-T-P fosters projection of personality elements and areas of conflict into the therapeutic setting, allowing them to be identified for the purpose of assessment and shared for the purpose of establishing effective therapeutic communication.

Description: With the KABC-II, you can choose the Cattell-Horn-Carroll model for children from a mainstream cultural and language background. Or if Crystallized Ability would not be a fair indicator of the child’s cognitive ability, you may choose the Luria model which excludes verbal ability. Administer the same subtests on four or five ability scales. Then, interpret the results based on your chosen model. Either approach gives you a global score that is highly valid and that shows small differences between ethnic groups in comparison with other comprehensive ability batteries. In addition, a nonverbal option allows you to assess a child whose verbal skills are significantly limited.

Young Schema Questionnaire (Long and Short Form) from the Schema Therapy Institute

Availability: 4 manuals
Age: Adults
Author:
Administration: Individual
Consumable: Inside Manual
Purpose: The Young Schema Questionnaire (YSQ) assesses which of the Early Maladaptive Schemas a patient probably has.
Description: The most basic concept in Schema Therapy is an Early Maladaptive Schema. We define schemas as: “broad, pervasive themes regarding oneself and one's relationship with others, developed during childhood and elaborated throughout one's lifetime, and dysfunctional to a significant degree." Schemas develop in childhood from interplay between the child's innate temperament, and the child's ongoing damaging experiences with parents, siblings, or peers. Because they begin early in life, schemas become familiar and thus comfortable. We distort our view of the events in our lives in order to maintain the validity of our schemas. Schemas may remain dormant until they are activated by situations relevant to that particular schema. Identify schemas relevant to your client which can inform intervention.
