R-PAS Interpretation in

Multimethod Assessment: 2 Cases

 Joni L. Mihura

This 8-hour (2 days, 4 hours each day) webinar by Joni L. Mihura, Ph.D., ABAP presents 2 adult cases that illustrate the clinical application of R-PAS in a multimethod context. The webinar focuses on two cases that Dr. Mihura supervised who were assessed with multiple methods of assessment. Case 1 is “RM” in the R-PAS manual, a single gay man in his mid-20s. In addition to R-PAS, his test results include the WAIS-IV, MMPI-2 (which is also scored for the MMPI-2-RF), and the TAT. Beyond the discussion of RM’s R-PAS results that are in the test manual, the case presentation and discussion will show specifically what R-PAS added to the multimethod assessment in understanding his personality and answering his assessment questions. The second case is a young heterosexual woman (“AK”) concerned that concussions had affected her memory and IQ. She was tested with a battery of cognitive ability, memory, and achievement tests (WAIS-IV, WMS-IV, CPT-II, WIAT-III) and the TOMM as well as R-PAS and the MMPI-2 (also scored for the MMPI-2-RF). After learning more about her condition, another self-report test was used to help conduct an interview around those symptoms.

After enrolling in the webinar, participants will be provided with a copy of the full R-PAS results for the 2 clinical cases to familiarize themselves with the results before the webinar. This will not only maximize the time spent in the webinar but also allow the participants to be more meaningfully involved in discussing the interpretations for the case. In general, participants will receive training in the principles and procedures for generating interpretive inferences that most closely align with the research literature and the psychological processes that are involved in generating each response.

Throughout the webinar, time is provided for questions, comments, and discussion with those in attendance. The goal of webinar is to understand clients more fully and accurately through multimethod clinical assessments that incorporate careful inferences made from valid, performance-based R-PAS scales.

EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES

  1. Summarize the R-PAS principles for accurate interpretation.
  2. Apply R-PAS interpretive procedures and guidelines to two cases.
  3. Utilize the R-PAS results output to make accurate interpretations.
  4. Integrate R-PAS results with other methods of assessment.
  5. Conceptualize the cases through the lens of the methods by which they were assessed to formulate the constructs.

Facilitator:

Joni L. Mihura, PhD, ABAP is a Professor of Psychology in the Clinical Psychology PhD Program at the University of Toledo where she teaches graduate courses in Assessment, supervises Assessment Practicum, and undergraduate Psychological Testing and Abnormal Psychology. She is Board Certified in Assessment Psychology (ABAP). Dr. Mihura received early career awards from Society for Personality Assessment (SPA) and the American Psychoanalytic Association as well as an SPA award for contributions to the literature. She is a Fellow of SPA, and currently serving as its President-Elect. She has published numerous articles and chapters on psychological assessment, and best known for her groundbreaking work with the Rorschach inkblot test—including systematic reviews and meta-analyses of the test’s validity. She is the co-editor of two recent books—Using the Rorschach Performance Assessment System (R-PAS) and the Handbook of Gender and Sexuality in Psychological Assessment—and the co-developer of a new Rorschach system, the Rorschach Performance Assessment System (R-PAS), for which she presents invited lectures and trainings internationally. In the past few years, Dr. Mihura has been developing a new area of expertise in psychosis for which she currently has articles and chapters in press and presented at the Schizophrenia International Research Society in 2020. Her new area of expertise is designed to inform the development of the new Thought and Perception Assessment System, a Rorschach system designed to assess psychosis specifically.
