Revised edition of the 1957 test. Originally devised by Eva Bene and James Anthony for exploring emotional attitudes in childhood, this test consists of a set of family figures, item cards, scoring and record sheets and a manual. It is designed to ases the emotional response a child has for his or her family and each of its members. It comprises a number of ambiguous figures of different shapes and ages to which the child can asign family membership, and a number of mesage cards which the child can asign to the family figure they best describe. The Family Relations Test is also available in formats for adults and married couples. This test was used by the Institute of Education at the University of Liverpool.
