Yedidia, Tova; Lipschitz-Elchawi, Rachel
Art Therapy: Journal of the American Art Therapy Association, v29 n3 p104-112 2012
This study examined social perceptions among 191 Arab and Jewish children who live in mixed neighborhoods in Israel. Human Figure Drawing assessment was used to examine the children's social perceptions. The drawings that the Jewish Israeli children created portrayed Arabs as the enemy, whereas the Arab Israeli children expressed a more positive perception of Jews. The Arab children's perceptions of the Arab social image were found to be less positive than the Jewish children's perceptions of the Jewish social image. Examples of the children's drawings and questionnaire responses about their drawings are presented. (Contains 8 figures.)
