Adapting the PPAT Assessment to Digital Devices: A Report

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

ROOM 715

Art therapy assessments have typically been conducted with drawing materials on paper. They are designed to examine the subject’s psychological characteristics, to seek diagnostic information, and/or set therapeutic goals. As the use of tablet devices becomes more common by the day, the question as to whether an art therapy assessment performed on a digital device could yield similar results to the traditional tools. Creating a digital version of Gantt's Person Picking an Apple from a Tree (PPAT) art assessment, a preliminary study was undertaken. Results show that the tablet-based PPAT achieves significant scores on the FEATS rating scale's key problem solving dimension. Validity of this study, and the PPAT, will be discussed, as will the issues inherent in using digital devices for art assessments, when traditional (tactile) art materials are not present.
