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

    8:30 AM - 5:00 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.

  • Social Exclusion Simulation (+)

    6:00 PM - 9:00 PM
    Chicago Campus

     

     

    The Institute on Social Exclusion (ISE) Social Exclusion Simulation (SES) is a powerful role-play exercise that allows participants to see more clearly the ways in which society’s systemic and structural barriers produce social exclusion for certain groups of people. The SES simulates social exclusion processes by replicating the experiences of formerly incarcerated women attempting to re-enter society following their release from prison.

    Participants include students, faculty and staff of the Adler School, members of the greater Chicagoland community, anyone interested in learning more about social exclusion. Participants adopt authentic Chicago-based case histories of formerly incarcerated women and are tasked with re-entering society – finding a place to live, a job, healthcare and other necessities – in the face of structural and systemic barriers.

    The SES is important because it helps participants understand the limits of personal responsibility and the critical role for social change initiatives.

    Participant outcomes include:

    • An increased understanding of what structural and systemic barriers are and how they work to undermine opportunity and access.
    • Increased appreciation of practical limits of personal responsibility, agency, and choice.
    • Increased motivation to adopt attitudinal and behavioral changes in pursuit of social change.
    • Increased empathy for other marginalized groups.
    • Apprehend the shock and disappointment about roadblocks of re-entry.

    To register and for more information about the Social Exclusion Simulation, contact the Institute on Social Exclusion at ISE@adler.edu.
