This self-paced training program on Rorschach Assessment in Forensic Practice is presented by Irving B. Weiner, PhD

It addresses the nature of the Rorschach Inkblot Method as a relatively unstructured performance-based personality assessment measure that can facilitate decision-making in forensic cases by providing information that might not otherwise become available and by being relatively resistant to impression management. The training identifies specific applications of Rorschach findings in criminal, personal injury, and child custody cases. The training additionally elaborates guidelines for effective presentation and defense of Rorschach testimony, including a review of the well-documented psychometric soundness of Rorschach assessment, the typical admissibility of Rorschach findings into evidence, and the Rorschach’s customary welcome presence in the courtroom.
