two-day workshop supports the clinical application of the Rorschach
Performance Assessment System (R-PAS) with children and
adolescents. The current status of R-PAS, recent research
with R-PAS with children, and developmental trends are highlighted as
foundation for applying the test to youth. Participants will
be introduced to the child norms, the online computer system and
resources, and the R-PAS interpretive output, and practical
demonstrations will be provided. Clinical application of
R-PAS is emphasized on the second day by presenting both an adolescent
and a child case. In addition, we will schedule a phone
conference about a month after the workshop to enable participants to
ask follow-up questions and to consolidate their knowledge and skills.
1. Describe important Rorschach administration factors that might
differ for children and adolescents versus adults.
2. Analyze and interpret child and adolescent normative foundations of
the child norms.
3. Utilize online systems for scoring child and adolescent protocols.
4. Identify variables that are associated with development
5. Translate R-PAS normative output to interpretative statements.
|For this intermediate level workshop, we assume
attendees have previous experience and training with R-PAS.
Reading the R-PAS Manual (Meyer, Viglione, Mihura, Erard, &
Erdberg, 2011; chapters 1, 3, 4, 5, 8, & 10), will be
particularly helpful for participants, as would be scheduling a
practice administration a week or two after the workshop.
The manual is available at the
R-PAS website (www.r-pas.org). After
registering for the workshop a 10%
discount code will be forwarded to you so that you can order it.
