Rorschach Performance Assessment System (R-PAS) 

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

This 2-day workshop by Philip Erdberg, Ph.D. is ideal for participants with experience in previous Rorschach systems who want a very thorough, practical understanding of R-PAS.

This 2-day workshop is designed to provide an 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. 

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 www.r-pas.org.  

  • 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.
