Abstract

Twenty children and adolescents with severe burns who participated in a Rorschach study in 1992 were reexamined in 1995. The Rorschach variables that were most deviant from normative table values were the same (X + %; EgoC; Afr; T; EA; P; WSumC; SCZI; DEPI; CDI; and Fr,rF) that had been found in 1 or more other studies examining Rorschach variables with individuals of all ages who had been traumatized by different events. Although group mean codes were similar across Rorschach administrations, a Spearman rank-order correlation coefficient of -.776 indicated that the group as a whole produced more pathological responses in 1995 than they did in 1992, with individual protocol pairs revealing changes between constrictive to flooded or flooded to constrictive records.
