In the research presented in this book, we have taken a binocular view. We have looked at the same patients through two separate lenses: (1) through the systematic evaluation of clinical observations presented in narrative case reports and (2) through the precise delineation of psychological test variables, especially from the Rorschach, whose reliability and validity have been documented in a number of prior cross-sectional research investigations. We rated data from each of these points of view without knowledge of the other, in order to demonstrate the validity of both approaches to clinical assessment.
