They Can Communicate: Self-Image Evaluation.
Deschin, Celia S.
As part of a 2 year demonstration project to evaluate the effect on the mental health of physically handicapped children placed in organized group activities with their nonhandicapped peers, two research instruments were used. The monograph discusses one of the instruments, the Self-Image Evaluation. A synopsis of the project is provided; and a brief history of the Self-Image Evaluation is included. Use of the testing tool with handicapped and nonhandicapped children, children in foster home care, and in the children's integration study is reported. Illustrations of the use of the testing device taken from the demonstration project are also included. The test's applicability to social work practice, such as to show that children can communicate indirectly through no response to questions that are disturbing, and to suggest that it is important that what the child reveals through the test be obtained before too much credence be attached to the parent's presentation of the child's problem, is made. The second research technique, the Comprehensive Family Rating technique, is discussed in EC 032 229. A detailed presentation of the entire demonstration project is found in EC 032 330. (CD)
