A clinician-friendly, comprehensive guide to utilizing the Rorschach has long been awaited. Principles of Rorschach Interpretation is a textbook of Rorschach interpretation that integrates the basic ingredients of structural, thematic, behavioral, and sequence analysis into systematic guidelines for describing personality functioning. The book is divided into three parts.
Part I addresses basic considerations in Rorschach testing and consists of chapters dealing with conceptual and empirical foundations of the inkblot method and with critical issues in formulating and justifying Rorschach inferences.
Part II comprises six chapters concerned with elements of interpretation contributing to thorough utilization of the 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 chapter presents and illustrates detailed guidelines for translating Rorschach findings into descriptions of structural and dynamic aspects of personality functioning. Throughout, emphasis is on 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 applied in clinical practice. These 10 cases represent persons from diverse demographic backgrounds and demonstrate a broad range of personality styles and clinical issues. The case discussions touch on numerous critical concerns in arriving at differential diagnoses, formulating treatment plans, and elucidating structural and dynamic determinants of behavior.
