Rorschach Performance Assessment System (R-PAS) 

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

This 2-day workshop is equally suited for participants who have no Rorschach experience or who have Rorschach experience and wish to learn R-PAS. Although empirical background will be provided, the focus is on providing a useful, detailed understanding of R-PAS for participants wanting to either use R-PAS in applied practice or to supervise or teach its use.

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, 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, and one free Interpretive Guide to facilitate understanding the results output.  

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