(Polish title: Diagnoza gotowosci dzieci z rodzin migracyjnych do komunikacji z innymi w swietle badan rysunkiem 'Moja rodzina'). The subject of the research presented in the article is the migrant family, defined in the subject literature as a 'temporarily incomplete' family, that is characterized by structural disorganization. The study included 77 children in a long-term separation with one or both parents. The control consisted of 64 children brought up in families, in which there was no separation. Children were selected for this group intentionally, on the basis of demographic variables: age, sex and the place where the child was living. The projective drawing with instruction 'My family' was used as the research tool. Statistical analysis and interpretation of the obtained results of the research compared the two groups of children as far as their readiness to communicate with their closest environment, indices of good and poor communication presented in the drawing, loneliness of the child in the picture and relations with the parent separated with the child for labor reasons and the one taking care of him were concerned. The obtained results show the occurrence of significant disturbances in the sphere of communication with the closest ones in the children from the families separated because of the labor migration as compared to the children in the control group.
