Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Quickly acquire the knowledge and skills you need to confidently administer, score, and interpret the Rorschach®
  • Complete coverage of administration, scoring, interpretation, and reporting
  • Expert advice on avoiding common pitfalls
  • Conveniently formatted for rapid reference

The Rorschach® inkblot test identifies adaptive and maladaptive patterns of thinking, feeling, and behaving. A projective personality test, the unrestrained structure of the Rorschach® allows for a variety of responses. In order to use the Rorschach® properly, professionals need an authoritative source of advice and guidance on how to administer, score, and interpret it. Essentials of Rorschach® Assessment guides both the new and experienced professional to a better understanding of the Rorschach® and how to implement it in practice.

Like all the volumes in the Essentials of Psychological Assessment series, this book is designed to help busy mental health practitioners quickly acquire the knowledge and skills they need to make optimal use of a major psychological assessment instrument. Each concise chapter features numerous callout boxes highlighting key concepts, bulleted points, and extensive illustrative material, as well as test questions that help you to gauge and reinforce your grasp of the information covered.

This step-by-step guide provides a clear and concise reference for those who want to understand and use the Rorschach® inkblot test with confidence. Written in an engaging, easy-to-read style, Essentials of Rorschach® Assessment places particular emphasis on the evaluation of adult personality using Exner’s Comprehensive System. The authors review the strengths and weaknesses of the Rorschach®, and offer valuable advice on its clinical applications, exciting new research data, and several illuminating case reports.

Format: Paperback
I have read and used a number of Rorschach scoring and interpretive guides and I feel that the pedagogical value of this book is on par with it's monetary value. As other reviewers have commented, this text is out of date. I also noticed that the case example towards the end is wrought with scoring errors. I purchased this as a brief guide for students in clinical placements, but I am now sure it is better that I summarize the contents of the Exner series for them. I don't recommend this text for anyone who actually uses the test.

Format: Paperback
In my experience, all of the "Essentials" series books are useful to a greater or lesser degree. I routinely write psychological testing reports, and have a stack of reference books nearby for quick perusal. This is NOT a book that should be used by students or professionals to comprehensively score and interpret a Rorschach; the Exner workbook is needed for that. However, this book has an excellently compiled index that allows the evaluator to quickly look up research and normative data on specific variables that stand out in a record.

Format: Paperback
I bought this book to assist me in learning the Rorshach in a projective assessment class. The book is easy to read, and it certainly provides the reader with eye catching information boxes that help to make sense out of complicated material. However, there are some problems. First, the book is out of date: it does not refer to current research or Exner's newest comprehensive edition. An update of this book might take care of this problem. Second, at times material that could be more comprehensively laid out for the reader is neglected. This concern would require the authors to re-write sections that are overly simplified.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Steven A. Migalski on May 17, 2008
Format: Paperback
This book was published as the CS was being updated so do yourself a favor and buy a different book...this one still deals with outdated scores, for example the SCZI, known now as the PTI. Also scores such as GHR, PHR, WDA% and XA% are nowhere to be found. Until Wiley updates this into a 2nd edition, stay away!
