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

1June 10, 11, 12, 2019 .................. 9:00 am - 5:45 pm
June 13, 2019 ............................... 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

Final day of training ends at 2:00 pm.
Total fee for four day workshop is $700. Continuing education is included.
Early Bird Registration ends June 1. 

This four-day workshop by Don Viglione, Ph.D., provides a comprehensive introduction to the foundations for R-PAS and for 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 how to use R-PAS in applied practice or teach it to others. With respect to the latter, many very experienced assessors have found this to be an extremely useful training experience, even though it is also ideal for beginners.

The workshop alternates between lecture, presentations, and interactive experience with every aspect of R-PAS administration, coding, and interpretation. All participants will be asked to 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, participants will receive a 10% discount code so that they can order the Manual or other products at www.r-pas.org. In addition, all participants will receive both one free protocol allocation, which allows you to code and process a protocol on r-pas.org, and one free Case-Based Interpretive Guide that you can attach to the protocol to facilitate clinical interpretation. 

There will be no on-site registration. Registration deadline is June 1, 2019. Please allow two business days for confirmation of registration. Payment is required prior to first day of training.
