BERMUDEZ NAVAS, Enrique; GONZALEZ-PABLOS, Emilio; SANGUINO ANDRES, Rosa  and  SAN SEGUNDO RIVERA, Daniel. TAT: Apperceptive norms in hospitalized patients with severe and prolonged mental disorders. Rev. Asoc. Esp. Neuropsiq. [online]. 2020, vol.40, n.137, pp.155-202.  Epub Dec 28, 2020. ISSN 2340-2733.

The Thematic Apperception Test (TAT) is a projective test created in 1935. In this article, its origin, bases and the usefulness that has shown throughout its history are reviewed. In addition, we examine its more recent applications and reflect on its possibilities. Finally, we replicate the study conducted by Saul Rosenzweig in order to establish adult apperceptive norms in the general population. In this paper, with a more rigorous methodology than that of Rosenzweig, we suggest a response pattern in individuals with severe mental disorders (mostly, schizophrenia).

Keywords : Thematic Apperception Test; projective tests; people with severe mental disorders; schizophrenia.
