Competency Area: Assessment
Restricted to Year III & IV students.
Restricted to Year IV students from December 10 - 16; open to Year III students on December 17. Prerequisite: Advanced Seminar: Object Relations Theory (PY 737A)

This course is meant for those students familiar with basic Rorschach who wish to gain more skill in using projective tests. Emphasis will be placed on the Exner Rorschach, with some attention also to the TAT and to coordinating data from projective tests with other data (such as from the Wechsler tests). Areas covered will include advanced scoring issues, interpretation of actual clinical protocols, and learning to present test data in useful language. The use of the Rorschach to address real world concerns, such as treatment planning, trauma, and forensic questions will also be addressed.
