BARBOSA, Altemir José Gonçalves  and  FERNANDES, Isabela Andrade de Oliveira. Preliminary validity and reliability evidence of the child drawing: hospital - brazilian version. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2017, vol.16, n.3, pp. 338-347. ISSN 1677-0471.

To obtain validity evidence and reliability estimates for a projective measure of stress resulting from hospitalization, the Child Drawing: Hospital - Brazilian version (CD:H) was applied to a sample of hospitalized children and adolescents (n = 81) and a school (n = 76). Satisfactory indices of inter-rater concordance (0.488 ≥ 0.804) and intra-rater (0.975≥1) were obtained for the three parts (A - Attributes Quality, B - Attributes Presence or Absence, and C - Global Drawing Assessment) and the total score of the instrument, as well as for internal consistency (α = 0.681). The CD:H scores were higher in the hospital sample. Although there was a predominance of Low Level stress in both subgroups, there were more hospital participants with Significant Stress and more cases of Coping in the school group. Thus, validity evidence and initial reliability estimates were obtained for CD:H. Nevertheless, further research is recommended.
