2018, November 3, Art Therapy and the TESTS - GESTALT ART THERAPY CENTRE

Psychological testing is the administration of psychological tests, which are designed to be "an objective and standardized measure of a sample of behavior".

Discover how to use these tools in a Gestalt Therapy context.


A Gestalt approach


The Test could be divided in:


  • Psychometrics TESTS
  • Projective TESTS

Psychometrics TESTS
Psychometrics is a field of study concerned with the theory and technique of psychological measurement. As defined by the National Council on Measurement in Education (NCME), psychometrics refers to psychological measurement. Generally, it refers to the field in psychology and education that is devoted to testing, measurement, assessment, and related activities.
The field is concerned with the objective measurement of skills and knowledge, abilities, attitudes, personality traits, and educational achievement. Some psychometric researchers focus on the construction and validation of assessment instruments such as questionnaires, tests, rates, judgments, and personality tests. Others focus on research relating to measurement theory (e.g., item response theory; intraclass correlation).
Practitioners are described as psychometricians. Psychometricians usually possess a specific qualification, and most are psychologists with advanced graduate training. In addition to traditional academic institutions, many psychometricians work for the government or in human resources departments. Others specialize as learning and development professionals.

Projective TESTS
In psychology, a projective test is a personality test designed to let a person respond to ambiguous stimuli, presumably revealing hidden emotions and internal conflicts projected by the person into the test. This is sometimes contrasted with a so-called "objective test" / "self-report test", which adopt a "structured" approach as responses are analysed according to a presumed universal standard (for example, a multiple-choice exam), and are limited to the content of the test. The responses to projective tests are content analysed for meaning rather than being based on presuppositions about meaning, as is the case with objective tests. Projective tests have their origins in psychoanalysis, which argues that humans have conscious and unconscious attitudes and motivations that are beyond or hidden from conscious awareness.

How Gestalt Art Therapy works with TESTS
Gestalt Art Therapy Centre incorporates some tests into the training and Therapy sessions/Supervisions.

Tests like:
• House
• Rosebush
• Person
• Animal

The Gestalt ART Therapy approach put more emphasis in to the power of the symbols, the archetypes, the colours & shapes and by the client’s interpretation.
Tests combined with the Gestalt therapy theory, provides a fascinated tool/technique to support clients into the awareness, projections, responsibilities and offering to the client, a safe space where they may explore and integrate the therapy process here and now.
Participate at this short workshop and discover how to use these tests-tools-techniques, into your professional practice and even into your personal life.
