Personality Projection in the Drawing of the Human Figure: By Karen Machover, Ph.D. Springfield, Illinois: Charles C. Thomas, 1949. 181 pp.

Review by:
Joseph Weiss

Dr. Machover presents a new projective technique based on a systematic attempt to analyze the patient's drawing of the human figure. She merely has the patient draw two figures, a male and a female. Her analysis considers the style and form of the drawings, the placement on the page, size, content, and a comparison of the two figures. It is assumed that the drawing will contain projections of the patient's conflicts about his own body or will refer to parent imagos. If any particular part of the figure is omitted, or done in a style not consistent with the rest, or contains erasure marks or transparencies, the patient is presumed to have a conflict about that part of the body.

Dr.
