Bird's Nest Drawing (BND)

The BND is a projective assessment created to evaluate the attachment security of the participant.

In children, attachment is evaluated in terms of classifications (secure, insecure avoidant, insecure ambivalent, and insecure disorganized)

In adults, attachment is evaluated in terms of relationship styles (secure, dismissing-avoidant, preoccupied, and fearful-avoidant).


- 8 1/2 x 11 white paper
-10 standard color markers

The administrator instructs the participant to:

1) "Draw a bird's nest."
2) "Write a story about the drawing that includes a beginning, middle, and end."

There is no time limit or specific age range.
