On August 7, the University of Hartford Psychology Department will be hosting a four-day intensive training aimed at developing proficiency in the Rorschach Performance Assessment System (R-PAS), a new but widely-accepted approach to using the Rorschach to assess personality and psychopathology.*
This training will be conducted by Donald Viglione, PhD, ABAP, Distinguished Professor at the California School of Professional Psychology at Alliant University and one of the developers of the R-PAS. This training will be the first of its kind on the East Coast and will be attended by more than 40 psychologists and psychology students from across the country.
