  • Celebrating Women’s Empowerment (+)

    3:00 PM - 4:30 PM
    Chicago Campus, Community Hall

     

     

    At the Adler School, we frequently discuss topics around social justice, empowering those who need our help, and envisioning a just future. Amidst the realm of social justice fall the inequalities between men and women, the outdated stereotypes that still dictate job choices for many women today and the tolerance by men and women alike.

    Two of our students, Cori Schild and Caitlin Higgins, have worked to create an event that not only raises awareness of the struggles women face, but to build courage within those who act on their behalf. 

    The Adler School community is invited to a very special event to hear the stories of those who have overcome barriers and stereotypes, broken through glass ceilings to achieve their dreams, and of those who helped along the way.

  • The Rorschach Performance Assessment System (R-PAS): Overview and Case Illustrations (+)

    8:30 AM - 4:30 PM
    Chicago Campus, Community Hall

     

     

    The Adler School of Professional Psychology will be hosting a training on the new Rorschach administration & scoring system on April 4 & 5 at the Chicago campus. Dr. Gregory Meyer will be here conducting the 2 day training, and we would like to offer a special deal to training directors & site supervisors who currently train doctoral students. The discounted price for the workshop is $350.00 for the full 2 day workshop, which also includes 12 CEU’s. 

    This two-day workshop introduces the new, empirically-grounded Rorschach Performance Assessment System (R-PAS). R-PAS uses the task as a verbal and perceptual behavior sample obtained under standardized conditions such that personality inferences are based on observed performance rather than self-description. Test scores are compared to new internationally-based norms and graphically displayed using standard scores. After describing the meta-analytic research foundation for R-PAS we focus on distinctive features of administration, coding, normative reference data, and interpretation, and apply the system to two cases. We assume participants have some previous Rorschach-based assessment experience.

    Registration is required prior the event. Please use the following link to register & select the Alumni option & the CEU option (if needed): http://www.planetReg.com/RPASworkshop.

    Any questions about the event should be directed to Dr. Lauren Nichols at lnichols@adler.edu.
