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 participants with no previous Rorschach training or experience.  It also will be useful for experienced clinicians and instructors who have training in previous Rorschach systems who want a very thorough "hands on" introduction to R-PAS. 

The workshop alternates between lecture, presentations, and interactive experience with every aspect of  R-PAS administration, coding, and interpretation.  

 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, we will be offering a lunch choice each day for an additional charge.  Please be sure to select your choice, if lunch is desired, during registration.

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