The stories children tell in response to pictures can provide valuable and unique information. The goals of this workshop were to:
- Provide a brief review of the history of and rationale for story telling techniques and to highlight useful instruments;
- Illustrate techniques for story interpretation using new data derived from youngsters’ responses to the first picture of the Thematic Apperception Test (TAT); and
- Use case studies to demonstrate how story material can be integrated with other test material in the psychological battery to address referral questions.
