Gregory J. Meyer, PhD & Joni L. Mihura, PhD
This 1-day in-person workshop (7 CE credit hours) is designed to train attendees who have previous experience with the Comprehensive System (CS) to understand, use, and teach or supervise the Rorschach Performance Assessment System (R-PAS). We begin with an overview of the five problems that R-PAS fixes; review administration, coding, and interpretive changes and the rationales for them; provide an overview of the many free teaching and training resources that are available on the R-PAS website; highlight the ways in which training students in R-PAS is easier than it was for the CS; and provide practical guidance for updating training resources. Finally, we close the day by focusing on a case interpretation that consolidates much of the previously covered material. This workshop is ideal for anyone who provides Rorschach-based training, including course instructors, teaching assistants, clinical supervisors, and clinicians working in settings that train externs, interns, or postdoctoral fellows. Participants should be familiar with the Rorschach.
The workshop format includes 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 15 minute break in the morning and afternoon.
