This book shows how the recently developed Rorschach-performance assessment system (R-PAS) for administering, scoring, and interpreting the Rorschach effectively enhances the use of the instrument by combining the R-PAS with self-report methods (e.g., interviews, questionnaires, and self-report personality tests) in forensic cases. How such multi-method assessment adds incremental validity, practical value, and insight across a wide range of forensic applications including impression management, psychotic offenders, competency evaluations, child custody, psychological trauma, dissociative disorders, and personal injury is covered in depth in this volume. Multi-method assessment provides the clinician with a powerful tool for explaining the results of diagnostic and behavioral findings of the Rorschach in forensic settings.
