Diagnostic Drawing Series Training: 30 Years of Assessment through Art (Day 1)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

ROOM 705

Participants must register for both days to attend

The Diagnostic Drawing Series (DDS) is a standardized three-picture art interview developed in 1982 by art therapist Barry M. Cohen. Not tied to any particular psychological or theoretical model, the DDS was the first art assessment to be systematically correlated with the nomenclature of the DSM. It can be administered individually and in groups with psychiatric and medical populations, where its use has been recommended or required by JCAHO and other authorities. The varied task structure of a DDS elicits valuable content, structural, and process information that, together, can inform clinicians as to the strengths and psychopathology of the subject.
