Review of the Literature Regarding Early Memories and Their Emerging Use in Projective Spiritual Assessment.
Bustrum, Joy M.
This doctoral research seeks to demonstrate the clinical utility of early memories by reviewing the current literature and providing a rationale for extending this research into the spiritual arena by highlighting the lack of available projective spiritual measures. Specific areas covered include an overview of early memory theory, technique and rating systems, as well as information pertaining to the ability of early memories to distinguish between types and levels of pathology, to be used as a measure of therapeutic change, to provide developmental information, and to assess health and normal personality variation. Research demonstrating the development of new projective probes is discussed. Information about the questionable reliability and validity of objective, self-report measures is presented, and the rising interest in spiritual issues is noted, both of which are used as a rationale for the development of the Early Spiritual Memory Test. Appendices include: "Comprehensive Early Memories Scoring System" and "Adelphii Early Memory Index (AEMI)." (Contains 59 references.) (Author/BT)
