Multimethod Assessment: R-PAS & the PAI

Gregory J. Meyer, PhD, Christopher J. Hopwood, PhD, & Joni L. Mihura, PhD

This 1-day workshop (7 CE credit hours) is designed to provide case illustrations of integrated multimethod assessment contextualizing what people see, say, and do when completing the performance-based Rorschach task in the context of how they understand and describe themselves on introspectively assessed self-report with the Personality Assessment Inventory. It is ideal for clinicians working in applied practice, instructors teaching multimethod psychological assessment, and doctoral students refining their skills in multimethod assessment. We provide an overview of both R-PAS and the PAI, though participants should be familiar with both methods and ideally have good familiarity with at least one of these methods before the workshop because we do not provide training in the fundamentals of either.

The workshop alternates between didactic lecture and instructor-led case discussion. The workshop is limited to 28 participants, so early registration is recommended to reserve a place.

After registering for the workshop a 10% discount code will be forwarded to participants for use to order products from www.r-pas.org.  In addition, all participants will receive one free protocol allocation that will allow for the coding and processing of an R-PAS protocol on r-pas.org. 

There are many 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 10 minute break each session. Initially scheduled from 9 to 5, the schedule has been changed to accommodate Bob Erard's Funeral.
