Human Figure Drawings by Children with Emotional and Behavioural Problems
Yeon Kyoung Park,Hye Jung Hwang
Abstract
In order to analyze the human figure drawings of children with emotional and behavioural problems, the Preschool Behaviour Checklist (McGuire & Richman, 1988) was administered to 300 6-year-old children from which 15 boys and 15 girls with emotional and behavioural problems and 15 boys and 15 girls without problems were selected for the target and comparison groups, respectively. Compared with children without emotional and behavioural problems, the human figure drawings of the disturbed children included immature eye drawings; immature liaison of body and arms or legs; no hair; strong and repeated lines; unbalanced arms and legs; unbalanced size of face, body, arms, and legs; and the size of the human figure less than a fifth of the sheet of paper. These results imply that the human figure drawing test is an efficient way to screen children`s emotional and behavioural problems.
