The Children's Apperception Test: Puzzle and Regular Form

pp. 40—42

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.
