An exploratory analysis of human figure drawings of a sick person done by children in the course of the NRF project mapping: Lindsay

Lindsay Smail is an Honours student at UKZN. Her interests include children, autism, the experience and development of emotions and the effects religion has on an individual's psychology. This project is an exploratory analysis of drawings of sick people done by Grade 3 and Grade 6 South African children in a context with high rates of HIV/AIDS and poverty. The drawings were done as part of an NRF project on barriers to learning (Muthukrishna, 2006). The drawings were analysed used the H-T-P test (Buck, 1992). In addition, the drawings were examined for any indicators of sickness that the learner might have included.

Thank-you Lindsay, I think the co-informing of more clinical theory and methods with research is very exciting. - Graeme Hoddinott
