“This is a good introduction to the R-PAS, a new interpretive system for the Rorschach Inkblot Test, with good psychometric properties. It contains clinical examples and protocols, which are extremely helpful. The R-PAS is a good addition to a neuropsychological protocol for both children and adults. *****!”

Doody's Review Service

“An impressive body of research supports the use of R-PAS, one of the most important instruments available to personality assessors. Edited by leading lights in the field, this much-needed volume brings together well-established personality assessment experts to provide rich examples of R-PAS interpretation. There is something for everyone, including chapters on clinical, forensic, school, neuropsychological, pre-employment, and medical assessment contexts.”

—Christopher J. Hopwood, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of California, Davis

“This book will meet the needs of clinicians just beginning to explore R-PAS as well as more advanced users who have longed for in-depth case studies. The opening chapters clearly explain the philosophy and empirical basis of R-PAS. The clients chosen for the case illustrations come from a wide variety of settings and have very different presenting problems, but all are fascinating. A number of the cases utilize collaborative/therapeutic assessment, illustrating how R-PAS data can be turned into helpful feedback for clients and referring professionals.”

“An excellent resource for both novice and experienced assessment psychologists, this volume brilliantly illustrates the use of R-PAS. The international contributors—all experts in different assessment domains—set a high standard for thorough case analysis. It is of particular relevance that a good proportion of the cases concern adolescents and young adults; this is the age period when symptoms of mental disorder often first appear and differential diagnosis is highly challenging. The value of performance-based assessment using R-PAS for answering complex diagnostic questions is lucidly demonstrated throughout this book.”

—Corine de Ruiter, PhD, Professor of Forensic Psychology, Maastricht University, the Netherlands

“A valuable resource for practitioners and researchers alike, this remarkable book should be on every clinician’s shelf. The volume illustrates how R-PAS data can be used to understand patients’ underlying dynamics and expressed behaviors and to enhance clinical and forensic decision making. Authorities in the field cover diverse assessment challenges, from domestic violence and suicidality to pre-employment screening and child custody evaluation. Skillfully blending empirical evidence with clinical wisdom, the chapters make R-PAS data come alive.”
