NOVEMBER/DECEMBER NEWSLETTER

2016 Beginning Programs Open for Registration

This year, similar to last year, we are offering two beginning program options.
Details and registration are available at www.rorschachtraining.com – “training programs.”

The first option is to assist those with challenging work schedules. We will have a 4 Day Beginning Program, February 18-21, 2016 in Dallas, Texas. The Program includes the same number of teaching contact hours as the five day program but is condensed into longer hours over a weekend. This Program will be held at the Comfort Suites, Frisco, Texas, that is north of Dallas, convenient to airports (Love Field and DWI) and is within walking distance of Frisco Square that offers a wide range of restaurants, cinema, etc.

The second option is the regular 5 Day Beginning Program to be held at the University of Hartford, West Hartford, CT, Monday – Friday, June 27- July 1, 2016. A courtesy room block is being held at the Marriott Residence Inn, downtown Hartford.

Psychologists ask why online training is not offered, or why the beginning training cannot be shortened.
Rorschach Training Programs has found that to have a solid foundation of understanding how to administer, code, and interpret the Rorschach CS training needs to occur through face to face interaction and feedback. This Program is equal to a semester’s training in the Rorschach CS. It is important that psychologists have an in-depth understanding of how scores are derived and how the structural summary is developed. Many psychologists rely on computer programs as time becomes a factor; however, it is vital that psychologists know the underpinnings of the systems they are using.

WE CONTINUE TO OFFER A DISCOUNT FOR GRADUATE STUDENTS. Before attempting to register send an email requesting instructions. Detailed information is posted on the website.

2 DAY ADVANCED REVIEW PROGRAM
(NOT YET OPEN FOR REGISTRATION)
This 2 Day Program is being planned for early August, 2016, in the New York City area. It is an opportunity to refresh and refine your Rorschach CS skills. Participants will be able to experience a variety of challenging protocols that will enhance their Rorschach abilities and increase their confidence in using the Comprehensive System. It will also provide the opportunity to network with colleagues, and enjoy the ambience of the “Big Apple.” This is a program for experienced Rorschachers. It is not a program for beginners. More information will be available when the program details are confirmed later in the year.

Coming – January/February 2016
Forensic Client History and Checklist (FCHC)

The foundation for any evaluation is a good history. Historical information provides a context for test findings and clarifies behavioral patterns. Whether you are involved in a clinical treatment practice, a clinical evaluation practice, or a forensic practice the value of a structured history cannot be overstated.

The January/February Newsletter 2016 will be offering just such a tool developed by Anthony Sciara PhD. The Forensic Client History and Checklist (FCHC) will be available online at that time. See the January/February 2016 RTP Newsletter for ordering instructions.

Remember that comments and questions are always welcome.

As the holidays approach we wish everyone the best of the season.
