The stories children tell in response to pictures can provide valuable and unique information. The goals of this workshop were to:

  1. Provide a brief review of the history of and rationale for story telling techniques and to highlight useful instruments;
  2. Illustrate techniques for story interpretation using new data derived from youngsters’ responses to the first picture of the Thematic Apperception Test (TAT); and
  3. Use case studies to demonstrate how story material can be integrated with other test material in the psychological battery to address referral questions.

Maxine Field, Ph.D., a psychologist in private practice, specializes in the assessment of children and adolescents, and does counseling with children and families. She received her doctorate from Bryn Mawr College.
