Rorschach Performance Assessment System (R-PAS) 

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

This 3-day workshop by Donald Viglione, Ph.D. is ideal for participants with experience in previous Rorschach systems who want a very thorough, practical understanding of R-PAS.

This training 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. 

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 participants will receive both one free protocol allocation that allows for the coding and processing of a protocol on r-pas.org and one free Case-Based Interpretive Guide that can be linked to the protocol to facilitate clinical interpretation. 

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

For preparation and to maximize learning and progress during the Workshop, participants should read the first three chapters of the R-PAS Manual, approximately 54 pages.
