Machover Draw-a-Person

The Machover Draw-a-Person test is a projective test that was designed in Sweden by Karen Machover in 1949 for psychodynamic evaluations and diagnostic assessments of children. Accurate interpretation of the Machover material requires an integration of many different theories from drive psychology, ego psychology, object relation theory and other theories that relate to the self's development. The test itself, which is still in regular use, involves having the child draw a man (or a woman). After the subject finishes his drawing, the output it is analyzed for details (clothing, or the lack therof) and other items that the picture might contain.
