Principles of Rorschach Interpretation

(Volume in Lea's Personality and Clinical Psychology Series)

by Irving B. Weiner

Praise for the first edition:

I strongly recommend...Principles of Rorschach Interpretation to all serious students of the Rorschach and even to beginning students. ¡ªContemporary Psychology

Praise for the first edition:

Extremely well-written, with a thorough outline of RIM interpretation and personality diagnosis...a valuable asset to any clinician working with children, adolescents or adults. ¡ªReadings: A Journal of Reviews and Commentary in Mental Health

Praise for the first edition:

Over the years it was probably necessary that the different strands that make up Rorschach interpretation-structure, content, sequence, and test-taking behavior-spend some time mostly isolated from one another so that each approach could grow and be refined. That separate development has happened, and now, with Principles of Rorschach Interpretation, Weiner has brought the strands together. This wise and eminently useful book integrates all that we have accomplished with the Rorschach in a presentation whose fortunate beneficiary is the personality assessment clinician.

Praise for the first edition:

This is the Rorschach book I have always hoped to excellent explains complex relationships among Rorschach variables in a comprehensive manner...[and] in experiential and interpersonal terms rather than in technical language. ¡ªLeonard Handler, Ph.D. University of Tennessee

Product Description

This second edition of Irving Weiner's classic comprehensive, clinician-friendly guide to utilizing the Rorschach for personality description has been revised to reflect both recent modifications in the Rorschach Comprehensive System and new evidence concerning the soundness and utility of Rorschach assessment. It integrates the basic ingredients of structural, thematic, behavioral, and sequence analysis strategies into systematic guidelines for describing personality functioning. It is divided into three parts.

Part I concerns basic considerations in Rorschach testing and deals with conceptual and empirical foundations of the inkblot method and with critical issues in formulating and justifying Rorschach inferences.

Part II is concerned with elements of interpretation that contribute to thorough utilization of data in a Rorschach protocol: the Comprehensive System search strategy; the complementary roles of projection and card pull in determining response characteristics; and the interpretive significance of structural variables, content themes, test behaviors, and the sequence in which various response characteristics occur. Each of the chapters presents and illustrates detailed guidelines for translating Rorschach findings into descriptions of structural and dynamic aspects of personality functioning. The discussion throughout emphasizes the implications of Rorschach data for personality assets and liabilities, with specific respect to adaptive and maladaptive features of the manner in which people attend to their experience, use ideation, modulate affect, manage stress, view themselves, and relate to others.

Part III presents 10 case illustrations of how the interpretive principles delineated in Part II can be used to identify assets and liabilities in personality functioning and apply this information in clinical practice. These cases represent persons from diverse demographic backgrounds and demonstrate a broad range of personality styles and clinical issues. Discussion of these cases touches on numerous critical concerns in arriving at different diagnoses, formulating treatment plans, and elucidating structural and dynamic determinants of behavior.
