FRANCO, Renata da Rocha Campos  and  VILLEMOR-AMARAL, Anna Elisa de. Zulliger and Constellations of the Rorschach applied in System-Comprehensive. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2012, vol.11, n.1, pp. 141-152. ISSN 1677-0471.

This paper aims to contribute on the discussion about the scientific status of projective techniques. Validity studies are indispensable, since they are the foundations that give legitimacy to the interpretations. Although the validity investigations are very important, the literature brings very few studies considering the Zulliger according to the Comprehensive System. The objective of this research is to verify if the Constellations of the Rorschach - Comprehensive System can be useful and applied to the Zulliger. The study included 46 psychiatric patients and ninety-five non-patients. The comparison between the means of the indicators that compose the Constellations in each group was carried out by Student t statistics test in order to verify whether they can contribute to a diagnosis through the Zulliger. The results were partly positive for schizophrenia and depression, but not for obsessive compulsive disorder, which showed no significant differences when compared with the group of non-patients.

Keywords : projective techniques; comprehensive system; validity study; Zulliger; Constellations of the Rorschach.
