GONCALVES, André Pereira; ZUANAZZI, Ana Carolina  and  VILLEMOR-AMARAL, Anna Elisa de. R-optimized administration in Zulliger: validity evidence for depressive patients. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2019, vol.18, n.2, pp. 111-120. ISSN 1677-0471.

The proposal of administrating Zulliger controlling the number of responses (R-Optimized) was never tried and it is necessary to verify empirically its validity evidences, our aim in this study. For this, 39 subjects were recruited, with a primary diagnosis of depression and minimal symptomatology within the light classification. The Baptist Depression Scale (EBADEP-A) was used to verify the symptomatologic level and, afterwards, the Zulliger and Rorschach tests were applied alternately to control the effect of one instrument on the other. For the analyzes, the variables related to depression of both instruments were selected according to previous literature. The results demonstrated initial evidence of validity for some variables related to depression, improving the correlation between them, when compared to previous studies in which the number of responses in Zulliger was not controlled. Further studies on Zulliger using R-optimized application are needed to confirm these findings.

Keywords : psychological assessment; depression; psychopathology; projective techniques; Rorschach.
