The test is extremely easy to administer, it takes a relatively short amount of time to In the thirty-five years during which the author has used the Bender Visual-Motor Gestalt Test in his clinical practice, he has consistently been impressed by its effectiveness in providing a range of important information about test subjects and by its convenience as a diagnostic tool. The test is extremely easy to administer, it takes a relatively short amount of time to complete, and it may be used alone or it can be included with any test battery.

The author demonstrates the importance of the parallel communications that are constantly being presented by the test subject, both verbally and nonverbally. Guidelines are provided to assist the psychological examiner in recognizing such communications and interpreting them dynamically. Contains detailed examples and case presentations that illustrate the concepts and techniques of the author's expanded testing approach. Annotation c. by Book News, In. Portland, Or. show more.

A handbook to the use of the popular test for perceptual-motor development and personality functioning. The author demonstrates the importance of the parallel communications that are constantly being presented by the test subject, both verbally and nonverbally.

The test consists of nine index cards picturing different geometric designs. The cards are presented individually and test subjects are asked to copy the design before the next card is shown.

The Bender Visual-motor Gestalt test has been an integral part of theĀ . The Bender-Gestalt Test, Thematic Apperception Test (TAT), sentence completion tests, figure drawings, and the Wide Range.

The Bender Visual-motor Gestalt test has been an integral part of the standard test battery for the past 50 years. Results indicate that projective tests remain popular, are used primarily to generate hypotheses about social-emotional functioning, are viewed as important in the assessment process, are applied for a range of purposes, and often are scored with personalized systems. The Bender-Gestalt Test, Thematic Apperception Test (TAT), sentence completion tests, figure drawings, and the Wide Range Achievement Test (WRAT) were also included in the 10 most frequently used instruments.

In the thirty-five years during which the author has used the Bender Visual-Motor Gestalt Test in his clinical practice, he has consistently been impressed by its effectiveness in providing a range of important information about test subjects and by its convenience as a diagnostic tool. The test is extremely easy to administer, it takes a relatively short amount of time to complete, and it may be used alone or it can be included with any test battery. More importantly, it not only has been used as a measure of perceptual-motor development and competence, but as a convenient and helpful means of assessing personality dynamics and functioning. In this book, the author describes a method to increase the scope of the test subject's performance so that both verbal and nonverbal behaviors may be observed, along with demonstrating an approach to generate clinically useful hypotheses on what the observed behaviors may signify. The components presented are: (1) the psychodynamic perspective; (2) the multi-phase administration; (3) the process of clinical interpretation; (4) symbolism and the Bender-Gestalt designs; (5) interpreting the verbal associations; (6) projective assessment; and (7) applications in counseling and psychotherapy. Additional data regarding the Free-Association and Selective-Association phases is included. The method being advocated in this book has been taught by the author to numerous psychologists-in-training as well as to many professionals with very gratifying results. It is because of the successful application of this particular projective approach by those who employ it that the decision was made to present the rationale and method in book form.
I have found to really love using the Bender as a projective measure, this book has assisted with that desire and love
Most clinicians are familiar with the Bender-Gestalt test. Since the publication of the system by Elizabeth Koppitz, the test has been largely utilized for visual-motor screening, screening for neurological impairment, and for emotional indicators. Dr. Perticone has brought this test to a new level. Those who are familiar and believe in the utility of the projective utilization of testing will take delight at a new way the Bender-Gestalt test can be administered and interpreted. In his work, Dr. Perticone discusses the hypothesized symbolic pull of each design, the projective signs of how the designs are drawn, and a method of expanding the Bender. Dr. Perticone brings a method where subjects, clients, and patients can discuss their design, thereby adding to the projective value of the assessment. This is a strongly recommended work, especially for any clinican who utilizes the Bender-Gestalt test in their assessment.
