Abstract: 

Objective: This study aimed to provide a normative study documenting how 114 five-seven year-old non- patient Iranian children respond to the Rorschach test. We compared this especial sample to international normative reference values for the Comprehensive System (CS).
Method: One hundred fourteen 5- 7- year-old non-patient Iranian children were recruited from public schools. Using five child and adolescent samples from five countries, we compared Iranian Normative Reference Data- based on reference means and standard deviations for each sample.
Results: Findings revealed that how the scores in each sample were distributed and how the samples were compared across variables in eight Rorschach Comprehensive System (CS) clusters. We reported all descriptive statistics such as reference mean and standard deviation for all variables.
Conclusion: Iranian clinicians could rely on country specific or "local norms" when assessing children. We discourage Iranian clinicians to use many CS scores to make nomothetic, score-based inferences about psychopathology in children and adolescents.
