to assist clinicians with scoring and interpreting Rorschach results
for individuals ages 5-70 years, the unlimited-use RIAP5 generates a
newly designed Client Report--an abbreviated, individualized, and
simplified version of the RIAP5 Interpretive Report that is intended to
be read and retained by the client. The Client Report provides the
basis for a discussion of a client's personality strengths and
weaknesses, adjustment difficulties, and possible need for treatment.
This report is written in easy-to-understand language, without jargon,
and can be easily edited on-screen.
addition to the new Client Report, the RIAP5 provides a revised
Interpretive Report that assists the clinician with scoring and
interpretation. The clinician enters the client's demographic
information, as well as background, presenting and diagnostic
information, and the Sequence of Scores (i.e., coded responses). These
codes may be entered using the keyboard or the mouse; once entered, the
software takes over calculating the various indexes, ratios, and
percentages that are necessary for interpretation. An on-screen
Software Manual is included to assist with installation and program
Features of the RIAP5
- Includes both an Interpretive Report and a Client Report.
- Scoring and interpretation are based on Dr. Exner's 5th
edition of A Rorschach Workbook for the Comprehensive System
and Dr. Weiner's Principles of Rorschach Interpretation, 2nd
- Now, protocol responses can be exported with RIAP5. Newly
enhanced Export feature allows the clinician to select the protocols to
be exported and allows greater choices of export formats.
- Allows either keyboard or mouse entry of coded responses,
accommodating the various skill levels of Rorschach scorers.
- Context-sensitive, cross-referenced Help System provides
clear descriptions of all coding errors found and suggests potential
solutions (each message has its own Help button for further
- On-screen access to interactive Form Quality Tables and
Location Charts facilitates navigation and coding accuracy.
- On-screen images of Location Charts match the
6-image-per-card format used in Dr. Exner's Workbook.
- Unlimited-use software automatically generates an on-screen
Structural Summary and Sequence of Scores, both of which can be printed.
- If a Structural Summary report would not be valid due to a
low number of responses, the RIAP5 will still generate the client's raw
data and constellations, but without any ratios, percentages, or
- Offers the option to select which sections of a report will
be generated: Structural Summary, Sequence of Scores, and/or sections
of the Interpretive Report or the Client Report.
- Powerful database allows for multiple protocols and reports
for each client and facilitates rapid retrieval of client information
for both individuals and client groups. The RIAP5 database allows the
clinician or researcher to calculate seven descriptive statistical
variables (i.e., mean, SD, min, max, mode, median,
frequency) for any user-defined client group.
- Rorschach Response Recording Forms facilitate and document
- The RIAP5 on-screen Software Manual increases the program's
user-friendliness, placing necessary assistance and documentation at
the user's fingertips. The Manual includes an in-depth tutorial section
that guides the user step by step from the creation of a client file to
printing the final Interpretive and/or Client Report(s).
