AbstractAssessment is the foundation for conceptualizing effective interventions. Due to their nonverbal nature, art therapy assessments have an advantage over traditional verbal assessments in some populations and potentially across cultures. This pilot study provides preliminary reliability data to support the cross-cultural use of the Formal Elements Art Therapy Scale (FEATS) as an art therapy assessment tool. A sample of 51 Chinese residents of Hong Kong completed the Person Picking an Apple From a Tree task, and their drawings were scored by two groups of art therapists and social workers in order to examine interrater reliability and to provide normative data for an Asian population. Results of the study showed high interrater reliability on the majority of the FEATS scales. Recommendations are offered to improve the rigor of art therapy assessment research and future normative studies. © 2012 Copyright Taylor and Francis Group, LLC.
