Abstract

RIBEIRO, Rosangela Kátia Sanches Mazzorana; SEMER, Norma Lottenberg  and  YAZIGI, Latife. Rorschach Comprehensive System norms in Brazilian children from public and private schools. Psicol. Reflex. Crit. [online]. 2011, vol.24, n.4, pp. 671-684. ISSN 0102-7972.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-79722011000400007.

The objective of this study was to construct normative tables for the Rorschach Comprehensive System for Brazilian children from public and private schools. The sample was selected using the Child Behavior Checklist and the Raven Test. The Rorschach was administered to children from 7 to 10 years old, both genders, from public schools (N=110) and private schools (N=101) in the city of Cuiabá, Mato Grosso State. Normative tables were created from the 113 variables of the Rorschach Comprehensive System, taking into consideration school type and age group. A comparison of the results demonstrated higher results in the R, Sum Y and Blend variables and in the Intellectualization Index among private school children, and higher Lambda scores among public school children.

Keywords : Rorschach Comprehensive System; Normative Tables; Children; Private Schools; Public Schools.
