The Children's Apperception Test: Puzzle and Regular Form
M.C. Dandridge, W.L. Faust
The purpose of this study was to see whether more apperceptive responses could be elicited by using the Children’s Apperception Test (CAT) in a way which required the child to become motorically involved with the pictures. Very short enumerative and/or descriptive responses to the CAT are typical of the preschool child (Bryd & Witherspoon 1954). This is an important limitation of the CAT since the amount and quality of interpretative responses are important for the test’s usefulness as a clinical instrument.
