The Bellak Apperception TEST: A new colored narrative assessment- Rorschach Conference July 2024

Introduction

The Bellak Apperception Test (BAT) is a new thematic projective assessment with a multicultural perspective. Comprising 5 cards, each available both black and white and multi-color versions. The inclusion of color is intended to enhance emotional content within the narratives. No study has been published to date on this new material and the latent content (or themes) of the cards remains to be investigated.

Methodology

This study aims to identify themes discussed by 40 typical young adults aged 18 to 25 and to investigate the specific influence of color on narrative production. Stories analysis methods include the Abrams Checklist of emotion words, the Social cognition and Object Relations Scale (SCORS-G), and discourse process analysis following the French school of projective methods.

Conclusion

The results will clarify the impact of color on emotional expressiveness, representations of relationships and understanding of social causality, and the narrative and defensive processes involved in story production. This new projective tool, tailored to multiculturalism, may provide an alternative means of exploring internal representations through the generation of narratives

Research Entries

CPS strives to publish cutting edge research, which can occur in a number of contexts and settings, including clinical/consulting, counseling, neuropsychological, forensic, health, social/community, multicultural, developmental/educational, industrial/organizational, and screening of candidates for public safety positions. CPS is interested in receiving manuscripts that consider development and validation of new assessment processes and tests, as well as advance the clinical utility and ecological validity of personality assessment in clinical and nonclinical populations. Ideally, both self-report and non-self-report assessment methods will be part of the validation process, though this is not required for papers to be considered for publication if we are granted permission by the author. Papers that report on studies that use causal or process-focused approaches to validity are particularly encouraged. Moreover, research that focuses exclusively on internal structure (e.g., factor analysis, item response theory) without external validation data are unlikely to be published unless exceptional significance and innovation to the field are clearly articulated. Research that examines a new translation of a test must also substantially advance the broader literature on the test itself to be published. Finally, research using convenience samples, such as university students.  We welcome research on our BAT black and white and color version as well as on our CAT color and black and white versions. We can supply the outline for the research upon request.

University Research

CPS wishes to collaborate with university programs so students can practice their assessment skills and have access to data to use for undergraduate students with their papers, dissertations, presentations etc

Each participant in the studies will receive the assessments without charge however shipping and handling will be received for each and every shipment. CPS has the research outlines for the BAT and CAT upon a signed agreement for any and all those interested .CPS can offer input of other studies being done currently in Brazil, and Italy as well as a slide presentation on the CAT by experts in the field in Brazil. CPS has connections of well known organizations who are familiar with studies that focus on the value of color in assessments. Feel free to inquire.

Autism- Outline “The CAT can be used by professors along with training slides with a classroom presentation with the Director of Training in counseling, school and clinical psychology at graduate schools. Educational material can help with the support of a professor and student. As a professor I showed the CAT to my research class and I explained it can be an example of qualitative research. I will also share it with my ABA program”. Dr. Melissa Scollan-Koliopoulos New Jersey Caldwell University New Jersey 2022

RESEARCH DESIGN for the BAT. For the research study testing your Kerin’s hypothesis that is similar to that of the Rorschach, is that color cards bring out more emotional responses, I suggest that we obtain 40 subjects of college or university age (18 to 21 years equally divided by females and males). Each group will have 10 females and 10 males. Group A will be giving the Monochrome BAT cards and Group B will be given the color BAT cards. This can be used in Autism and with child custody research also.

Scoring-

The stories of Group A and Group B will be scored
1- Total number of emotion works in all 5 bat stories
2- Total number of Positive Emotion Words in all BAT stoires
3- Total number of Negative Emotion Words in all BAT stories. List of Emotion Words.

The color BAT cards are hypothesized to result in the largest number of emotions words., thus proving your color hypothesis. It will also be very easy to score validity and reliability for the BAT with this research study.

Validity and Reliability scores will be obtained from the results of this research study.

Any positive outcomes would be presented onto the CPS website and a Journal.
