  • The Rorschach Performance Assessment System (R-PAS): Overview and Case Illustrations (+)

    8:30 AM - 4:30 PM
    Chicago Campus, Community Hall

     

     

    The Adler School of Professional Psychology will be hosting a training on the new Rorschach administration & scoring system on April 4 & 5 at the Chicago campus. Dr. Gregory Meyer will be here conducting the 2 day training, and we would like to offer a special deal to training directors & site supervisors who currently train doctoral students. The discounted price for the workshop is $350.00 for the full 2 day workshop, which also includes 12 CEU’s. 

    This two-day workshop introduces the new, empirically-grounded Rorschach Performance Assessment System (R-PAS). R-PAS uses the task as a verbal and perceptual behavior sample obtained under standardized conditions such that personality inferences are based on observed performance rather than self-description. Test scores are compared to new internationally-based norms and graphically displayed using standard scores. After describing the meta-analytic research foundation for R-PAS we focus on distinctive features of administration, coding, normative reference data, and interpretation, and apply the system to two cases. We assume participants have some previous Rorschach-based assessment experience.

    Registration is required prior the event. Please use the following link to register & select the Alumni option & the CEU option (if needed): http://www.planetReg.com/RPASworkshop.

    Any questions about the event should be directed to Dr. Lauren Nichols at lnichols@adler.edu.
