Homegrown Science
TAT
Stuff you need…
TAT cards. Yep, that’s right. You need the cards. Even you.
Pencil, pen, crayon, or chunk of coal.
Paper, parchment, a bit of bark, or a non-sweaty palm.
Or a laptop, but that doesn’t work for me.

Must record verbatim (or as close as possible).

Administration
Therapeutic Hand
Cards
Pick six.
Ones I tend to use:
1, 2, 3BM, 13MF, 13B, 14

Regardless of what you pick, use the same ones over-n-over again.

What to say to adults
I’m going to show you some pictures and your job is to tell a story around the picture. That is, you should say what’s going on, what led up to it, and what happened after. Let me know what the characters are thinking and feeling. I’ll pitch in and ask a few questions.
Does that make sense?

(Ask this question more frequently than you think you should. )

What to say to kids
Stop picking your nose! I’m going to show you some old timey pictures and your job is to tell me what’s going on in the picture, what happened before, and what happened after. Tell about feelings and thoughts. I’ll help you out along the way.

What happened 5 years later?
Why did he/she/they do that?
What story didn’t you tell?
Which one reminds you of you?
What do you make of all of these?

Beyond the Basics: Other fund stuff to ask on the TAT
There’s no wrong way.
It’s play.
Everyone in the story is them.
You’re probably in their stories too (or at least the context is).
Don’t ever call it the Tat (rhymes with cat).

TAT Thoughts
Hey, those cards are just a bunch of old timey white folks!
Prepare not to learn anything about the MMPI-2
MMPI
Hathaway and McKinley (1949)

Designed to discriminate between diagnostic groups.
(Didn’t).

Criterion keying

Item overlap

Double-barreled items

Development
MMPI-2
1989

Changed some of the items.

Better normative sample.

Fewer references to “stool.”

1: Diffuse bodily concerns. Sick role. A little whiney.
2: State-like depression; trait-like depression; internal focus.
3: Affectively showy. Attention-seeking and needy.
You know…like a woman. Am I right Danny? Yeah.
4: Awesome. Socially rebellious, difficulty learning from past mistakes, impulsive, naughty (or a history of naughtiness).
5: If high, then nonconforming to socially-dictated gender norms. If low, then overly conforming to socially-dictated gender norms.
Clinical Scales 1-5
6. What?
7. Woody Allen
8. Out of contact with consentual reality. Or religious. Or stoned. Or has a head injury.
9. First, I need to get some stuff from the store and then I need to write this paper and then I need to finish my painting and cook dinner and walk the dog and then finish designing an Anglican Cathedral, and then learn to play the banjo….
0. Chatty folks are awesome. Quiet folks suck.
