Projective Assessment and School Psychology: Contemporary Validity Issues and Implications for Practice
Miller, David N.; Nickerson, Amanda B.
California School Psychologist, v11 p73-84 2006
Projective techniques continue to be widely used by school psychologists despite frequent criticisms of their use. This article reviews contemporary validity issues in the use of projective techniques with children and adolescents, including incremental validity, treatment validity, and problems associated with professional judgment and experience. A discussion of these issues and their implications for school-based projective assessment is provided, along with recommendations for the appropriate use of projective techniques with children and youth within a problem-solving framework.
