4-Day Introduction to R-PAS: Rationale, Administration, Coding, and Interpretation 

Gregory J. Meyer, Ph.D., Joni L. Mihura, Ph.D., & Robert E. Erard, Ph.D.

This 4-day workshop is designed to provide a comprehensive introduction to understanding the foundation for R-PAS and using it in applied practice. It is ideal for two types of participants: a) those with no previous Rorschach training or experience and b) those who are experienced clinicians and instructors who have training in previous Rorschach systems and want a thorough "hands on" understanding of R-PAS. 

The workshop alternates between lecture, presentations, and interactive experience with every aspect of R-PAS administration, coding, and interpretation.  The workshop is limited to 28 participants, so early registration is recommended to reserve a place.

 All participants should bring an R-PAS Manual to the workshop (The Rorschach Performance Assessment System, Administration, Coding, Interpretation and Technical Manual, by Meyer, Viglione, Mihura, Erard, & Erdberg, 2011).  After registering for the workshop a 10% discount code will be forwarded to participants so that they can order the Manual at www.r-pas.org.  In addition, all qualified participants will receive one free protocol allocation that will allow for the coding and processing of a protocol on r-pas.org. 

  • Participants should read Chapters 1, 2, and 3 of the R-PAS Manual before attending.

There are a good number of fast food and family restaurants within a mile of the venue. However, a good lunch is also available in the hotel restaurant.

*There will be a 15 minute break each morning and afternoon. Because we are ending by 3 pm on Sunday, the other days last until 5:45 pm.
