Thematic Apperception Test
Clinical | Neuropsychology | Psychopathology | Clinical Diagnosis
The 31 picture cards included in the TAT are used to stimulate stories or descriptions about relationships or social situations and can help identify dominant drives, emotions, sentiments, conflicts and complexes.
The cards include specific subtests for boys, girls, men, and women. It is a widely used projective test and is useful as part of a comprehensive study of personality and in the interpretation of behaviour disorders, psychosomatic illnesses, neuroses, and psychoses.
AREAS OF APPLICATION
The TAT is widely used in the assessment of children, adolescents, and adults for diagnosis, therapy and research.
Since the TAT is a hand-scorable assessment, there are currently no software reports available.
