Projective Methods in Psychological Assessment
CLI PM625 - Projective Methods in Psychological Assessment
The focus of this course is on projective assessment, particularly the Rorschach Inkblot Test and its application in clinical practice. Students will also learn how to administer and interpret other projective tests including narrative techniques and drawings. Students will learn the Comprehensive System for administration, scoring, and interpretation including the most recent developments in Rorschach psychology. Strategies of interpretation will include analysis of structural variables as well as associational features of thematic imagery. Students will also learn how to use projective techniques in a culturally sensitive manner. This course will use a developmental lens and focus on the use of the Rorschach throughout the lifespan.
Note: Beginning Fall 2018, students in this course will receive training on the Rorschach — Performance Assessment System (R-PAS) in place of the Exner Comprehensive System.
