Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1979, Vol 24(8), 652–654. Reviews the book, Methods in Clinical Psychology, Vol. I: Projective Assessment by Robert R. Holt (1978). This book does not deal broadly with the topic of projective assessment. Rather, it focuses on the approach of Robert R. Holt, and is based upon both his previously published works and some new material. A large section of the book is devoted to the Thematic Apperception Test (TAT), one of Holt's frequent topics throughout his professional career. In the short section at the end, Holt presents some of his other work that is unrelated to the main tests covered. The whole book is an account of the work of a creative, insightful, and thorough assessor and researcher. The book should not be mistaken for an introductory text to projective techniques, which it clearly is not. It is most suitable as a book for the advanced graduate student or professional who already understands the basics and would like to have some supplementary ideas, both for clinical use and further research.
