Thought-provoking contributions from the world of the Rorschach – including a very special section celebrating the 100th anniversary of the publication of Psychodiagnostics by Hermann Rorschach
This volume of Rorschachiana illustrates the diversity of ideas and applications that projective methods offer. In a general section, we see how active researchers are in exploring the Rorschach method: in looking at teaching the Rorschach Comprehensive System, in testing how reliably examiners score Form Quality, in examining the concurrent validity of the Sixty-Second Drawing Test when assessing high schooler’s relationship and depression, as well as researching the specific features of postnatal mothers scores on the Rorschach Method. The development of the Rorschach Test in China is also presented.
In celebration of the 100th anniversary of the publication of Psychodiagnostics by Hermann Rorschach, a special section looks at the scientific literature produced on the reliability and validity of the Rorschach test as a personality assessment tool since the White Paper from the Society of Personality Assessment published in 2005. The topics addressed show the wide application of the test: trauma, neurophysiological functioning during administration of the test, a case study of attempted manslaughter, eating disorders, evaluating change in psychotherapy, and disordered thinking and communication. To broaden the discussion and reach out to the wider psychological community, each chapter is commented on by a specialist on the topic. Much food for thought is generated for future research.
