I attended an intermediate-level workshop this month in a new scoring system for the Rorschach inkblot test, called the Rorschach Performance Assessment System (R-PAS)™. R-PAS is an approach to using the Rorschach in applied practice. Here’s a description:

R-PAS grounds the Rorschach in its evidence base, improves its normative foundation, integrates international findings, reduces examiner variability, and increases utility. All while keeping the needs of the new learner in mind. It is being developed by Gregory Meyer, Donald Viglione, Joni Mihura, Robert Erard, and Philip Erdberg, along with Fabiano Miguel.

Our goal is to have a clinically rich, evidence-based, logically transparent, user-friendly, internationally-focused system of behavioral assessment with inkblot stimuli that is available for applied practice and generates sound inferences.
