The CAT is recommended for use in children ages 3–10 years and features pictures of animals that are often in tension-filled situations. As part of the test, the child is asked to tell a story about the picture with a beginning, a middle, and a conclusion. The use of animals is based on the theory that young children may identify more easily with animals rather than human figures. A “human figure” version of the CAT, the CAT–H, is also published for use with older children and in research. The Roberts Apperception Test for Children (RATC; Roberts and McArthur 1982) is a projective test that provides an objective scoring system and norms.

To assess construct validity, the clinicians correlated the children’s scores on a traumatic event exposure scale with their Darryl scores. Among other findings, the sum of the event scores was significantly correlated with the summed symptom scores. Additionally, the proportion of children with “probable PTSD” (at least one reexperiencing symptom, more than two avoidance symptoms, and more than one arousal symptom) increased significantly with increasing exposure scores. Future field-testing is planned for Darryl using a more heterogeneous population.
