Description - Issues and Methods in Rorschach Research by John E. Exner
Any research which involves the use of the Rorschach or focuses on the nature of the Rorschach must be framed in the context of the basic principle which mark any scientific investigation. However, most texts concerning research design or data analysis do not deal directly with many of the unusual issue confronting investigators who use the Rorschach in their research. The nature of the test and test procedures are somewhat different than for most psychological tests, and often, these characteristics become critical when research designs are formulated. Similarly, some of the data of the tests are quite different from the customary distributions yielded by other psychological tests. Thus special care must be exercised when considering the variety of tactics that might be used in analyzing the test data. This text is specific to the Rorschach. It brings together experts on Rorschach research and presents in-depth treatments of each facet of methodology - from design to analysis - as well as more conceptual issues. It is designed to aid investigators in contending effectively with the many difficult challenges often encountered in Rorschach research.
The text adds to the information already available to the accomplished researcher and provides some enlightenment for the Rorschach novice. It attempts to dispel the notion that rote methodology or analyses can be applied routinely to studies involving the Rorschach, and seeks to improve the quality of investigations in which the test is included and contribute to the improvement of the overall research yield in the Rorschach community.
