Title: Dissociation : Vol. 1, No. 4, p. 033-040 : Art, Interpretation, and Multiple Personality Disorder
Author: Fuhrman, Nancy L.
Abstract: This paper explores both projective and spontaneous drawings of school children and compares them to drawings of multiple personality disorder (MPD) patients. Results of many scholarly studies indicate that children typically follow predictable stages in their artistic growth with one stage or set of drawing behaviors building upon the preceding stages. It will be shown that MPD patients function artistically at different stages of creative growth, thus precluding artistic growth to flow smoothly, gradually, and predictably as it does in non-MPD individuals. The discontinuity in representative stages in the artwork of MPD patients will be addressed.
