Abstract:
This study compares information gathered by Kinetic Family Drawings with information gathered by an Adlerian Life Style Interview. A non-clinical population of university students participated in the study. The participants drew a crayon picture of their families from the perspective of age five and then answered three questions about their drawings. The participants then participated in a structured Life Style Interview which dealt with their perceptions of their lives as young children in their families of origin. All questions were tape-recorded and later transcribed. A panel of experts in projective drawings analyzed the drawings and the transcriptions of the three questions and then summarized each participant's possible apperceptions about life. A panel of Adlerian psychologists analyzed the interview data and summarized apperceptions. The apperceptions were then compared. Results indicate that both projective devices elicit like or similar information about an individual's views of life, self, men, women, and family values.
