dc.description.abstract Investigates the effect of the implementation of the Graphic Family Sculpting (GFS) technique on the perceptions of individuals with regard to dimensions of their families. The study also compares the effect of the GFS with that of Kinetic Family Drawing (KFD), a more traditional technique in Psychology. The literature survey analyses the meaning of certain key terms, such as graphic family sculpting, kinetic family drawing, projection, projection techniques, and family-of-origin. A sample of undergraduate and Honours students specialising in Psychology were randomly divided into four groups. It appears that the application of GFS and KFD had no significant effect on the subjects' perception regarding the functioning of their family. Because of the lack of significant results, and the large number of females in the various experimental groups, it was decided to extend the investigation and focus specifically on the results of the female subjects. No significant differences in the pre-testing results of the various groups could be discerned. There were also few significant differences between the pre and post-testing of the various groups. The results imply that the application of GFS in group context does not change persons' perceptions of the functioning of their family, and that it is not a more powerful technique than KFD. Should GFS be applied and interpreted individually, it may prove to more powerful. en
