POOL, Alejandro. Analysis Based on the Traumagenic Model of the Graphic Indicators Associated to Children Sexual Abuses in the Person in Rain Test. Psykhe [online]. 2006, vol.15, n.1, pp. 45-55. ISSN 0718-2228. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-22282006000100004.
This article's purpose is to link theoretically the traumagenic dynamics of sexual abuse described by David Finkelhor and Angela Browne with graphic indicators associated to sexual abuse in children (Girardi & Pool, 2005) in the Person in Rain test. As a result, it was clearly demonstrated that most of the indicators associated to children's sexual abuses in the Person in Rain test are related to the traumagenic dynamic of Helplessness. The indicators "sectioned rain", "absence of umbrella", and "big head", correspond to this category. The indicator "absence of environment" corresponds to the Betrayal traumagenic dynamic. The "short arms" graphic indicator represents the Stigmatization traumagenic dynamic. Finally, the "maniac smile" graphic indicator is not included in any of the traumagenic dynamics.
