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.
