InA Practical Guide to the Thematic Apperception Test, long-term experts in projective assessment Edward Aronow, Kim Altman Weiss, and Marvin Reznikoff have created a concise and eminently useful introduction to the use and interpretation of the Thematic Apperception Test. A brief history of apperception techniques and the development of the TAT provides background for subsequent discussion of how to administer the test and interpret the results. The authors present data on the stimulus value of the TAT cards and findings from research on apperceptive techniques, issues of cultural diversity, and alternative apperceptive methods. Sample protocols illustrate the use of the test in clinical context. This broad coverage and pragmatic approach make the book an important resource for students and practitioners seeking to familiarize themselves with this time-tested tool for psychological assessment.
