The Thematic Apperception Test, the Children's Apperception Test, and the Senior Apperception Technique in clinical use by Leopold Bellak( Book )

47 editions published between 1975 and 1998 in English and Spanish and held by 1,389 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For forty years this book has been the leading source of training for clinicians interested in learning how to use thematic apperception techniques in clinical practice. Interest in these techniques is on the rise; numerous surveys conducted over the last 10 years have found the Thematic Apperception Test to be among the most frequently used instruments across a variety of clinical settings. Dr. Bellak has written this new edition to reflect the current renewal of interest in the T.A.T and related techniques. Like its predecessors, the fifth edition shows the reader in an easy, orderly way how to progress from primary data to clinical diagnosis. With a rich selection of case material and many sample interpretations, Dr. Bellak provides a wealth of examples and actual analyzed test records. He also provides a card-by-card analysis of which T.A.T cards are most likely to be helpful for specific purposes. The fifth edition has been completely updated to reflect the newest research; in addition to earlier research, the annotated bibliography contains descriptive entries on more than 120 papers and studies published since 1980. Current issues and trends are also discussed. Dr. Bellak notes the increasing role of brief psychotherapy and points out the important contribution apperceptive techniques can make in this field. He explains how apperceptive tests can be used to assist in neuropsychological assessment (such as in attention deficit disorder) by analyzing the subject's organization, language use, and attention to pertinent picture details in T.A.T stories. And he shows how the Senior Apperception Technique (S.A.T) may prove helpful in pinpointing problems in the elderly that can be successfully addressed by physicians, social workers, and nurses not specifically trained in clinical psychology. Once again Dr. Bellak has produced a major contribution to the literature of apperceptive techniques, one that will enhance the work of a new generation of psychologists, psychiatrists, psychoanalysts, social workers, and other clinicians
Projective psychology : clinical approaches to the total personality by Lawrence Edwin Abt( Book )

34 editions published between 1950 and 1979 in English and Undetermined and held by 843 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book has been prepared because of the great need that exists today to bring within the confines of one volume for easy reference the variety of projective tests and procedures that constitute the growing armamentarium of the clinical psychologist. Although virtually all clinicians are familiar with at least several projective procedures and employ them as appropriate, there is no one today who is fully in command of the vast amount of knowledge and highly developed special skills that the projective methods presented in Projective Psychology: Clinical Approaches to the Total Personality require in clinical use. For this reason principally, and also because of the fact that projective psychology is a rapidly growing discipline in which many clinicians should have a voice, we have preferred to have the separate chapters on the several projective instruments and procedures prepared by leading workers whose competence with a particular technique or application in a special setting has been established. The result, we believe, is a happier one than might have occurred had we ourselves presumed to present the field of projective psychology from the background of our experience alone. The projective methods offered have been chosen with a catholicity which grows out of our belief that projective psychology is young and vigorous, and that it is important to set forth what is actually being practiced at the present time. We have imposed no restrictions upon the contributors, urging each to express as fully as he liked his own views, and asking only that the material offered have a practical orientation which may increase its usefulness as it finds application in the hands of others. The emphasis in each instance is chiefly upon the clinical use of the various procedures rather than upon their use as research tools in personality or clinical inquiries"--Preface.

Dementia praecox, the past decade's work and present status: a review and evaluation by Leopold Bellak( Book )

26 editions published between 1947 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 441 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the few things concerning dementia praecox, or schizophrenia, upon which there is general agreement, is the fact that it is the most important single psychiatric diagnostic category. It constitutes about 20 per cent of all first admissions to mental institutions and accounts for about 45 per cent to 50 per cent of the total resident population of mental hospitals. It is this tremendous importance of the problem, experienced as a daily impact in long hospital corridors, which instigated this work. It was further stimulated by many case histories of tragic dimensions, by the embarrassment in facing unhappy relatives and the uneasiness of facing students with inadequate information. This book is, in many ways, a review of the work done on dementia praecox, particularly in the past ten years. More than a review, it is meant to be a roll call and a stock-taking. The underlying idea in the review, is to show not only what work has been done, but where certain suggestive trends meet, what has been omitted or overlooked, and what all the information we have adds up to. It should be an arrow to the future, pointing to what should next be done to ascertain one point or to discard another hypothesis. Reviewing the publications, we have arrived at, and are suggesting, some tentative hypotheses concerning the etiological factors in dementia praecox.
