The aim of this study is to give an overview on the current situation of art-based assessment in Latvia, focusing on the adaptation and its results of The Bridge Drawing (TBD) assessment tool. The study consisted of two stages – the adaptation of TBD in Latvian and examination of its content validity and psychometric data; the use of adapted instrument in order to investigate any differences in TBD drawings between clients with symptomatic eating disorders and those without. In the first stage of the study, 40 respondents participated, while in the second stage 50 participants (25 respondents with symptomatic eating disorders and 25 without such diagnosis) were selected. It was concluded that the psychometric data generally shows adequate results in most of the quantitative TBD scales. Statistically significant correlation between a number of TBD and COPE-LV scales was detected, suggesting that TBD can be used to determine problem-solving strategies. This research also revealed various differences in TBD drawings of clients with symptomatic eating disorders.
