Leading–edge coverage of Rorschach personality assessment

Essentials of Rorschach Assessment: Comprehensive System and R–PAS offers practical, step–by–step guidance to clinicians administering Rorschach personality assessment, with expert discussion of administration, coding, and interpretation. Providing uniquely dual coverage of both the Comprehensive System and the R–PAS, this invaluable reference details each method in–depth before placing them side by side for direct comparison. The same case study is used for both methods to provide a clear illustration of differences and similarities, and deliberative coverage breaks down the jargon and technical language to facilitate a deeper level of understanding.

Like all volumes in the Essentials of Psychological Assessment series, this book is designed to help busy practitioners quickly acquire the knowledge they need to conduct accurate, informative assessments. Key points are highlighted throughout to allow for quick reference as needed, and coverage of the latest research provides up–to–date perspective in line with leaders in the field. Downloadable resources including sample forms, checklists, and charts assist in all phases of the assessment, and help clinicians transition cleanly between the Comprehensive System and the R–PAS.

The Rorschach Inkblot Test assesses unconscious perceptions, thought processes, needs, motivations, and conflicts; the Comprehensive System has a well–established track record, but new evidence shows that the more recent R–PAS method may be advantageous in some situations. Essentials of Rorschach Assessment: Comprehensive System and R–PAS offers practical guidance and comparative examination to quickly bring clinicians up to speed.
