Description

Several facets of the Tree­Scar­Trauma hypothesis were addressed. The first inquiry was whether scars, knotholes, and/or broken branches on a drawn tree are indicative of previous victimization. A statistically significant relationship between mental health patients ( N = 56) and control subjects (N = 215) with regard to their abuse history and tree drawings. No significant differences between those two populations were found. A modification of Buck's (1948) hypothesis with regard to the relationship between the location of traumatic indicators on projective tree drawings and age of traumatization was tested and not validated. However, the association between the duration of physical abuse and the number of indicators on the tree was statistically significant. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
