About this book

Introduction

This book on Rorschach assessment addresses both the complexities of adolescent development and the intricacies of differentiating between normal and abnormal behavioral manifestations. It presents the theory, research, and basic practices of Rorschach assessment and examines the developmental considerations for its use with adolescents, both as a stand-alone instrument and in conjunction with self-report measures. The book's collection of detailed case studies shows the Rorschach method in use with adolescents from different countries across the age group and reflects diverse symptoms. In addition, the new Rorschach Psychoanalytic Science and Practice (RPSP) model endorses the relevance of the method to contemporary practice.

Featured coverage includes:

  • Developmental considerations in Rorschach assessment.
  • Diagnostic, forensic, and therapeutic applications of Rorschach assessment with adolescents.
  • An integrative perspective on the Rorschach task and its implications for understanding personality functioning from different psychodynamic perspectives.
  • Psychometric properties of the Rorschach.
  • New normative international data for adolescents.

Rorschach Assessment of Adolescents is a must-have resource for researchers, professionals, and graduate students in child clinical and school psychology; forensic medicine; assessment, testing, and evaluation; developmental psychology; and educational psychology.
