Abstract: Beside speech, that helps children to express their feelings and experiences, establish relations with people, the drawing is one of the most truthful ways of its expression. In this paper the results of pleasant and unpleasant emotions among children through drawing of human gure are presented. The survey is conducted on 634 children, and the results indicate that there is difference in expressing negative emotions between boys and girls, while at expressing pleasant emotions the results are similar.
LevelScheme: A level scheme drawing and scientific figure preparation system for Mathematica  [PDF]
M. A. Caprio
Physics , 2005, DOI: 10.1016/j.cpc.2005.04.010
Abstract: LevelScheme is a scientific figure preparation system for Mathematica. The main emphasis is upon the construction of level schemes, or level energy diagrams, as used in nuclear, atomic, molecular, and hadronic physics. LevelScheme also provides a general infrastructure for the preparation of publication-quality figures, including support for multipanel and inset plotting, customizable tick mark generation, and various drawing and labeling tasks. Coupled with Mathematica's plotting functions and powerful programming language, LevelScheme provides a flexible system for the creation of figures combining diagrams, mathematical plots, and data plots.
Evidence of Incremental Validity between Pfister Test and Human Figure Drawing
International Journal of Psychology and Behavioral Sciences , 2012, DOI: 10.5923/j.ijpbs.20120204.07
Abstract: The aim of this study was to seek incremental evidence of validity between the Color Pyramid Test (CPT) and the Human Figure Drawing (HFD). The incremental validity of information obtained from a given test can predict something unique, which other existing measures or constructs cannot predict. The sample consisted of 118 children from public schools in the state of Sao Paulo, Brazil, of which 59 (50%) were male, aged between 6 and 12 years (M = 9.22, SD = 1.75) and education ranging from pre-kindergarten to seventh grade. The tests were administered on each child without predetermined time for their implementation. The results showed significant correlations between the two tests, which contributed to the evidence of incremental validity between the two tests. It is suggested that further studies on the evidence of validity and accuracy, with controlled samples and other indicators,not explored in this study, will contribute to the projective techniques surveyed.
Research on the Drawing-up of the Pole Figure for Orientation Analysis of Directional Si Steel Sheet

材料科学技术学报 , 2000,
Abstract: The magnetic property of soft magnetic metals and alloys depends strongly on the crystallographic orientation. In automated equipment for orientation research. the intensity for drawing up the pole figure is measured in detail. The present research shows that the accurate pole figure can be drawn up without measuring concretely the intensity. For directional Si steel sheet the measuring step may be 4 similar to 5 degrees. In this paper the experimental equation for defocusing correction was derived from the experimental data in different specimens with random orientation.

Psychology, Community & Health , 2007,
Abstract: Aim: Taking into account the increasing number of people who carry out voluntary activities, it becomes relevant to understand who these people are and what motivates them. Therefore, the present study aims at: (1) characterizing a sample of hospital volunteers within an oncologic context regarding socio-demographic variables, specific variables of a hospital volunteer and motivations for volunteering; and (2) analyzing the relation between motivations for volunteering, and indicators of psychological well-being and quality of life. Method: The sample is composed by 53 hospital volunteers, from Liga Portuguesa Contra o Cancro – Núcleo Regional do Centro, who work at the Instituto Português de Oncologia Francisco Gentil de Coimbra. The assessment tools included a socio-demographic and volunteering characterization questionnaire, the Volunteer Functions Inventory (VFI; Portuguese version: Gon alves, Monteiro, & Pereira, 2011), the Psychological Well-Being Manifestation Measure Scale (PWBMMS; Portuguese version: Monteiro, Tavares, & Pereira, 2006), and the WHO Quality of Life-Bref (WHOQOF-BREF; Portuguese version: Vaz Serra et al., 2006). Results: From the results obtained, we highlight that the most valued motivational functions are “values”, “experience”, and “enhancement”. Additionally, there was a positive association between the “values”, “experience”, “enhancement” functions, and the psychological well-being subscales and global well-being; and a negative association between the “protective” function and psychological and environment domains of quality of life. Conclusion: Interpretations of the results as well as their implications are discussed in the light of relevant literature.

Studies in Sociology of Science , 2011, DOI: 10.3968/2034
Abstract: Analysis was carried out on 538 papers about psychological health study (from 1998 to 2007) and which was included by CNKI (China National Knowledge Internet) data base using literature metrological method. The results showed: (1) the number of papers about Chinese psychological health study published in dominated academic Publications wasn’t large, the quality of which needs to be improved. (2) Concerning on the objects of study, more attention has been paid to teenagers’ psychological health study, and much less to pupils, preschool children, middle and old aged folks’ psychological health. (3) With regard of the research field, they concentrated on the relative factors about psychological health and the survey of psychological health’s current situation, and a few about the drawing of psychological health scale and psychological health education. (4) Cooperative research has been the leading way of psychological health study, but most of which were co operations inside one organization, the cooperations over institutions need to be strengthened. The team of psychological health study was forming, but it wasn’t stable, and there was not any core author. (5) The distribution of study power institutions focused on higher educational normal universities and mechanic colleges, hospitals, the distribution of study power regions mainly concentrated economic developed regions.

PLOS ONE , 2013, DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0058991
Abstract: The practice of using children's human figure drawings (HFDs) to assess their intellectual ability is pervasive among psychologists and therapists in many countries. Since the first systematic scoring system for HFDs was published in 1926, their continued popularity has led to the development of several revised versions of the test. Most recently, the Draw-A-Person Intellectual Ability Test for children, adolescents, and adults (DAP:IQ) was published. It is the most up-to-date form of HFD test designed to assess intellectual functioning across a wide age range. In the present study, we assessed the validity of the DAP:IQ as a screening measure of intelligence in both children and adults. In Experiment 1, 100 4- to 5-year-old children completed the DAP:IQ and the Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scale of Intelligence-Third Edition. In Experiment 2, 100 adults completed the DAP:IQ and the Wechsler Abbreviated Scale of Intelligence. In both experiments, we found only weak to modest correlations between scores on the DAP:IQ and the Wechsler tests. Furthermore, when we compared individual's scores on the two tests, the DAP:IQ yielded high false positive and false negative rates when screening for borderline and superior intellectual functioning. Based on these findings, and based on the lack of validity of previous HFD tests, we conclude that practitioners should not rely on HFD tests as a projective measure of intelligence.

Abstract: The drawing ability of children develops parallel to their mental and physical development. The present study aims to investigate the compatibility of children’s drawings with their mental and physical development and variables affecting this compatibility in early childhood. Methods: Children between the ages 3 and 5 were asked to draw a human/child figure on a given sheet of paper and their drawings were analyzed. Results: 175 children were evaluated. The mean age was found to be 3.94 ± 0.81 and the mean drawing age was 3.42 ± 1.75. The drawing age was found to be statistically lower than the calendar age. It was found that children who had low birth weights, who did not go to kindergarten and who masturbated had lower drawing age. Low drawing age was not found to be related with psychological disorders. Discussion: Drawing can be utilized by mental health professionals as an important assessment tool for young children. Further studies with larger sample sizes are required to generalize.
