This set of articles draws from a conceptual model for Hispanic mental health research developed by the Hispanic Research Center of Fordham University and describes the development and use of "Tell-Me-a-Story" (TEMAS), a new thematic apperception test for the assessment of personality functioning in ethnic minority children. An introduction, by Lloyd Rogler ("A Barrier Model for Hispanic Mental Health Research: New Techniques for the Psychiatric Evaluation and Psychotherapy of Hispanic Children"), summarizes the research model and considers the reliability and validity of TEMAS. The next two articles are by Giuseppe Constantino: "TEMAS: A New Technique for Personality Assessment and Psychotherapy for Hispanic Children" reviews the cultural basis for ineffectiveness of traditional mental health treatment modalities and introduces TEMAS; "Cuentos Folkloricos: A New Therapy Modality with Puerto Rican Children" presents results of ongoing research on therapy which uses historical and folkloric Hispanic figures to promote ego development in Puerto Rican children and adolescents. This is followed by "Reliability and Validity of TEMAS: A New Thematic Apperception Test for Urban Ethnic Minority Children," by Robert Malgady, an article which elaborates upon the technical psychometric research on this new projective personality test. The final article, by Jean Bailey ("TEMAS: A Blind Case Study"), discusses a case history of a child who was administered the TEMAS procedure. (Author/WAM)
