AB:Anorexic patients of the stable type, who had never had crises of severe bulimia, revealed at the Rorschach test a high degree of focusing of attention, a stable and well-organized capacity for perception, experience, and communication. In some cases their thinking and communication could be classified as restricted paranoid type of thinking. On the contrary, the patients who oscillated dramatically between crises of under- and over-eating showed, in the Rorschach transactions, perceptual uncertainty or later denial of interpretation, and not infrequently, vague, and indefinite percepts. Findings reveal in these cases a deeper perceptual and cognitive disorder (fragmented type of thinking, experiencing, and communicating). In such cases there is body-image disturbance, and a body-cognition disturbance, the result of a learning-process during which the child has not learned, in the transactional relationship with the caretaker, how to accurately perceive and conceptualize his bodily needs, and how to satisfy them adequately (and independently from the caretaker) out of a direct and consistent contact with his own basic source of experience his own body. The most serious disturbance of the body-cognition (anorexia-bulimia) could therefore be the result of a learning-process arising from confusion and wrong conditioning, on the part of the impervious mother, of the recognition and validation of the original percepts of the child.

AB:The purpose of this study was to contribute current normative data for nonpatient, community-residing, older adults and to explore the accuracy of the historical finding in the Rorschach literature of age-related personality deficits utilizing a rigorous multimethod approach. An older adult group (60 to 80 years old) and a comparison group of younger adults (30 to 50 years old) were recruited from a community sample in Central California. All participants (N = 106) were administered the Rorschach using the Comprehensive System (Exner, 1995), Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale-Revised (WAIS-R), and the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory-2 (MMPI-2) using standard administration and scoring procedures. Two neuropsychological screening instruments, the Trail Making Test, Part B, and the Neurobehavioral Cognitive Status Examination (NCSE) were administered to the 58 potential OAG participants. Six of these cases were considered screen failures and excluded from the study due to mild cognitive impairment or possible undiagnosed early dementia. The Rorschach and MMPI-2 data for the 52 cognitively intact participants do not suggest significant age-related personality weaknesses, which is an important difference from many previously published studies of nonpatient older adults. These results highlight the positive impact of rigorous participant selection and suggest a need for larger scale conceptual and empirical investigations of this fast-growing population.

AB:Discusses problems and considerations involved in codifying the Rorschach for statistical analysis. The codification process is deemed feasible according to 3 hypotheses: (a) certain levels of the Rorschach may be considered to have a stable symbolic value; (b) every Rorschach response has a meaning, i.e., it symbolically expresses something of the subconscious transferential S-examiner relationship and the subconscious affective structure of the S; and (c) in a given culture, a certain number of symbols are stable or common to everyone. An example is given to show that symbolic interpretation has more than a diagnostic and prognostic value. Also, (a) the type of reality to which a symbol belongs, (b) an agreeable, disagreeable, or neutral type of symbol, and (c) the level of symbolic elaboration are revealed.

AB:Studied the course of mental functioning of 3 pedophilic males with the Rorschach. The test was administered twice to subjects (Ss) aged 22 yrs, 43 yrs, and 45 yrs in France who were in compulsory group treatment as part of the terms of their probation agreements. The time lapse between the 2 testing sessions varied from 9 mo to 16 mo. Three main areas of psychological functioning were assessed based on the behavioral-cognitive theory of pedophilia: cognitive functioning, self-perception, and interpersonal relations. Initial testing results indicated varied but typical dysfunction in all Ss. Retest results showed substantial adaptive change in all Ss. Results are discussed in terms of change processes within the framework of psychotherapeutic treatment of pedophilic patients.

Certain special phenomena were noticed: (a) initial crash, characterized by anatomical and monochromatic replies, self-criticisms and reaffirming questions, increase in RT, or reduction of the number of replies; (b) red crash, a continuation of all the above protocols with compensation mechanism in each case; (c) grey crash, characterized by expressions of symmetry; (d) color crash; and (e) crash to Plates VI and VII. Frequent self-criticism was found. Analysis of protocols revealed that Ss could be classified into 2 groups those with strong inhibition, and those with anancastic traits which approximated obsessives.

Findings concerning the actual clinical application of IBTs and practitioners' attitudes are presented, and future research perspectives are noted. It is concluded that the status of IBTs has improved, but that there is still not sufficient evidence for their validity and reliability.

In senile dementia emotional and cognitive restrictions of personality become severe and "may be another reflection of the senile's general deterioration as seen in their poor verbal and nonverbal performance." Elderly depressives display a similar pattern, features of which are more consistent with depressive records in general. Contrasted with seniles, the latter give more evidence of insight and control over emotional reaction and manifest greater potentiality for environmental response. Ss were 51 normals, 25 senile dementias, and 24 depressives, 60 to 80 years of age. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2002 APA, all rights reserved)

PB:Switzerland: S Karger AG. 

AB:Investigates correlations between suicidal acts, precipitating crises, and psychological disorders. Methods to estimate suicide rates, high risk groups, crisis aspects, and the presuicidal syndrome are discussed. High-risk groups include alcohol and drug (both prescription and illegal) addicts (30% of suicides), depressed persons (30%), and persons over age 60 yrs. Since it is impossible to supervise all persons falling into these categories, major research efforts have been directed toward recognizing the crisis situations preceding suicidal acts. Traditional psychological tests (e.g., MMPI, Rorschach, TAT), self-appraisal questionnaires, and psychiatric exams have auxiliary value, but are often too time-consuming and ambiguous. The most reliable method of predicting suicide risk has been the assessment of the presuicidal syndrome, which is characterized by withdrawal, aggression against self, and suicidal fantasies. Suicidal development proceeds from the stage of considering suicide as a means of solving one's problem to ambivalence regarding the final suicide decision. This syndrome can be detected in questionnaires and interviews that take into consideration such variables as previous suicide attempts, sleep disturbances, biological crises, and lack or loss of human contact.

AB:Despite the strong association between alcoholism and orality in psychoanalytic theory, use of the Rorschach Inkblot Test to provide empirical support for such a link has yielded mixed results. However, the Rorschach Oral-Dependency (ROD) scale has shown that people with alcoholism give more oral-dependent responses (ODRs) on the Rorschach than matched comparison groups. This study investigated 47 alcohol subjects (Ss), 49 depression Ss, and 50 "normal" undergraduate Ss with the ROD scale and found that the 2 clinical groups produced higher ROD scores than the undergraduates. Recent studies provide evidence for an object relations model (ORM) of dependency that suggests that a balance between anaclitic dependence and complete independence, in which dependency needs are acknowledged but are not overwhelming, is most adaptive. This model of dependency was evaluated; it was found that a simple difference in group means provided a better fit with the data, although some evidence of an ORM also was found. Rorschach and MMPI-2 levels of general defensiveness and primary process manifestations in Rorschach content were investigated to assess whether Ss were responding defensively to the testing and whether there were any differences in the nature of ODRs between the clinical groups.

were recorded using an eye-mark recorder during a free-response period in

a Rorschach test. Four cards (I, II, V and VIII) were used. Data were

the number of eye fixations and the number of eye fixation areas were

fewer, and total scanning length and mean scanning length were shorter for

patients than for controls. For card II, in the non-popular response

group, eye fixation frequency upon area 5+6 (red) was higher for patients.

For card VIII, in the popular response group, eye fixation frequency upon

area 5+6 (pink) was lower for patients. For cards II and VIII, the number

of eye fixations was inversely correlated with negative symptoms. For card

II, total scanning length tended to be inversely correlated with negative

symptoms, and mean eye fixation time was correlated with negative

symptoms. The number of eye fixation areas was inversely correlated with

positive symptoms. For card VIII, eye fixation frequency in a stimulative

area tended to be correlated with positive symptoms.

schizophrenia. This study focused on sex-related differences in thought

processing as shown in the Rorschach test. 36 schizophrenic patients (aged

23-45 yrs) were tested with the Rorschach in accordance with the

Comprehensive System. The results showed that the female patients were

more active in handling information input but showed more impairment in

conceptualization. The male patients showed more perceptual disturbance.

It was concluded that the Rorschach might add information in

differentiating among subtle thought disturbances. It might even be useful

to detect relationships between thought processes and neuroleptic

medication.

administered to the patient in the standard way, and is scored and

evaluated using conventional standards. S is then invited to produce

similar or related designs of his own devising. Appropriate inks and

materials are provided and the S always works in the same physical

location in which the original (standard) Rorschach test was taken. Not

every S will be able to create his own designs (called "response-designs"

to distinguish them from the usual verbal Rorschach responses, and to

emphasize their expressive, nonverbal nature). Where design-responses can

be evoked they provide a rich basis for extending the understanding of

both the nature of projective testing and for learning more about the

individual psychology of the responding S. The design-responses of 4

patients are reproduced, together with the verbal descriptions of them

offered by their creators. The name "Auto-Rorschach" is suggested for this technique.

PB:Switzerland: S Karger AG. 

AB:Investigates correlations between suicidal acts, precipitating crises, and psychological disorders. Methods to estimate suicide rates, high risk groups, crisis aspects, and the presuicidal syndrome are discussed. High-risk groups include alcohol and drug (both prescription and illegal) addicts (30% of suicides), depressed persons (30%), and persons over age 60 yrs. Since it is impossible to supervise all persons falling into these categories, major research efforts have been directed toward recognizing the crisis situations preceding suicidal acts. Traditional psychological tests (e.g., MMPI, Rorschach, TAT), self-appraisal questionnaires, and psychiatric exams have auxiliary value, but are often too time-consuming and ambiguous. The most reliable method of predicting suicide risk has been the assessment of the presuicidal syndrome, which is characterized by withdrawal, aggression against self, and suicidal fantasies. Suicidal development proceeds from the stage of considering suicide as a means of solving one's problem to ambivalence regarding the final suicide decision. This syndrome can be detected in questionnaires and interviews that take into consideration such variables as previous suicide attempts, sleep disturbances, biological crises, and lack or loss of human contact.

AB:Despite the strong association between alcoholism and orality in psychoanalytic theory, use of the Rorschach Inkblot Test to provide empirical support for such a link has yielded mixed results. However, the Rorschach Oral-Dependency (ROD) scale has shown that people with alcoholism give more oral-dependent responses (ODRs) on the Rorschach than matched comparison groups. This study investigated 47 alcohol subjects (Ss), 49 depression Ss, and 50 "normal" undergraduate Ss with the ROD scale and found that the 2 clinical groups produced higher ROD scores than the undergraduates. Recent studies provide evidence for an object relations model (ORM) of dependency that suggests that a balance between anaclitic dependence and complete independence, in which dependency needs are acknowledged but are not overwhelming, is most adaptive. This model of dependency was evaluated; it was found that a simple difference in group means provided a better fit with the data, although some evidence of an ORM also was found. Rorschach and MMPI-2 levels of general defensiveness and primary process manifestations in Rorschach content were investigated to assess whether Ss were responding defensively to the testing and whether there were any differences in the nature of ODRs between the clinical groups.

The bipolar style of response is characterized by selective attention to the more objective aspects of the inkblots, while the unipolar style of response is characterized by a more subjective approach. Primary response to color was found only in the protocols of bipolar Ss. The styles of response are discussed in relation to other studies showing similar results based on self-assessment and clinical tests. It is suggested that perceptual-cognitive structuring of the external environment may be related to, or predispose, mood levels.

AB:Studied the relationship between pair responses to the Rorschach test and narcissism. Human Ss: 30 male and female Italian adults (mean age 25 yrs 8 mo) (psychosis). 20 male and female Italian adults (mean age 24 yrs 10 mo) (psychopathology). 30 male and female Italian adults (mean age 28 yrs 3 mo) (depression). 40 normal male and female Italian adults (healthy controls). The Rorschach test was administered according to J. E. Exner's procedure (1986), and the egocentricity index was calculated. The results were compared to the results on the Embedded Figures Test by H. Witken et al (1971) and the Semantic Differential Test by C. Osgood et al (1959). The results were compared among groups of psychiatric patients and controls. The results were also used to determine between adaptive and pathologic consequences of narcissism. An analysis of variance (ANOVA) and other statistical tests were used.

AB:Used a thermoelement to measure the skin temperature of 62 Ss during completion of 21 Rorschach and 39 Behn-Rorschach protocols. While shading shock was more frequently accompanied by a drop in skin temperature, color shock usually showed no drop. This finding corresponds to the theoretical postulates that (a) color shock occurs primarily in hysteriform neuroses in which the affect representation is repressed; and (b) shading shock is a sign of a phobic reaction, in which the object representation is repressed and the affect of anxiety is preserved. Shading shock is thus a diminutive, usually subliminal, attack of anxiety. The investigations of E. Kretschmer's pupil Hertz that ixothymics (corresponding approximately to Kretschmer's viscous persons) react physiologically more inertly than others was confirmed. (French summary)

AB:Studied a random population of 50 neurotic patients treated with drugs in an attempt to determine the influence of an S's personality on the therapeutic outcome. By using the mathematical method of correlation coefficients and canonical correlations, the existing correlations between symptoms and diagnosis (subforms of neurosis, e.g., obsessive neurosis and anxiety) were analyzed. Results show that diagnosis was made according to the most predominant symptom. Personality was examined with the Rorschach test and a high correlation was found between Rorschach's "anxiety syndrome" and the diagnosis of neurosis. Basic Rorschach items were divided into class intervals and a statistical distribution similar to that of diagnosis was noted. Therapeutic results were studied in relation to the above mentioned factors, and the canonical analysis showed that treatments were established according to the main symptom and only minor tranquilizers were effective. 7 Rorschach profiles were found to be significantly correlated with the therapeutic outcome and a prognostic item scale was developed on this basis.

Data on sociodemographic variables and clinical and psychological symptoms were obtained by semistructured interview. The results were evaluated according to adaptation, fantasy, narcissism, self-identity, and body image. The results indicate that younger Ss (aged 11-14 yrs) with restricting anorexia show Rorschach results similar to those of a normal population with some tendency to deny gender identity and female body characteristics. Older Ss (aged 15-18 yrs) show more diverse results and no clear relation to anorexia psychopathology. No relation of depression nor obsessive disorder were noted.

Insufficient definitions (e.g., for insomnia, sleep disturbance, and poor sleep) constitute a major problem in evaluating findings. There is considerable agreement regarding variations in the pattern of sleep and wakefulness and the presence of clinically significant insomnia to be associated with psychiatric illnesses. It is less certain to what degree this holds true for cases of poor sleep in the population at large.

In the affirmative, it must further be asked whether the choice of the animal is sufficient or whether the context of the response should also be taken into account and analyzed. A study was conducted of Rorschach protocols of borderline and psychotic Ss. Results did not indicate that any particular type of animal can be linked with a specific nosographic category. One may speculate, for example, that a psychotic's preoccupation with origins influence his choice of prehistoric animals. However, a complementary analysis of context (verbalization structure) is necessary.

AB:Studied similarities and differences in the psychological functions of transsexuals and Ss with anorexia nervosa. Emphasis was on Ss' connection with reality, self-image, and perception of internal demands. The Rorschach was administered to 25 male and female transsexuals (aged 21-57 yrs) and 17 female anorexic inpatients (aged 16-51 yrs) in Belgium. An ANOVA was performed. The results indicate that the groups did not differ in their connection with reality. However, compared with transsexuals, anorexics seemed impervious to internal demands and had an unrealistic self-image.

AB:Compared 27 firesetting delinquent adolescents (mean age 14 yrs 9 mo) with 70 seriously delinquent, incarcerated adolescents (mean age 15 yrs 2 mo) who had not set fires. Ss were administered a battery of psychological tests, including the WISC and the Rorschach, and were evaluated by a child psychiatrist and a neurologist. Findings suggest that delinquent firesetters and nonfiresetters were similar neuropsychiatrically, intellectually, and, with the exception of firesetting itself, behaviorally. There was no case in which firesetting was the S's only violent aberrant behavior. The major factor distinguishing firesetters from nonfiresetters was experiential. Although both groups had similarly low proportions of biological fathers in the home, the number of firesetters with biological mother in the home was significantly lower than for nonfiresetters. It is suggested that the lack of consistent parenting by either father or mother may not only have engendered the kind of rage frequently associated with firesetting but also had its consequences in an extreme lack of socialization and judgment. The fact that in at least 3 instances parents used fire to punish their children suggests that in these cases they conveyed the message that the use of fire was an acceptable mode of retaliation.

AB:(from the chapter) Argues that the major impediment to understanding Rorschach autisms is not the naivete of the new graduate student but rather, a lack of definitional precision; that is, the absence of an overall concept that explains what autisms have in common, which would therefore relieve the student of the burden of memorizing each variety of autism piecemeal. It is further contended that it is possible to logically deduce the underlying nature of autistic responses, thus providing the student with a more efficient approach to understanding and appreciating these powerful signs of cognitive distortions.

AB:Bleuler and Bleuler (see X: 2094) are criticized for admonishing one using the Rorschach test to "feel himself into" every response made by the subject. There is need for fixed standards rather than greater subjectivity in scoring this widely used test. It is the personality of the client and not that of the examiner that is to be reflected.

AB:"A systematic analysis of the symbolic contents of the Rorschach responses may help to advance our knowledge of the unconscious and put the Test to new use as a research tool of psychoanalytic science." Rorschach records of 36 enuretic patients contained a particular group of responses not found in non-enuretics. Regarding these as symbols of the unconscious helps to clarify the causation of enuresis.

AB:Used interviews, the Rorschach test, and the Draw-a-Person test to produce

a psychological and personality profile of a male patient with Gilles de

la Tourette's syndrome that showed rigidly obsessive features. Within this

picture, the S felt that his tics were a perfectly ego-syntonic trait of

his personality. Impotence feelings and dependency needs were hidden by

megalomaniac and hypomanic traits. It is concluded that this personality

structure allows relative stability, quick recovery from psychotic

breakdowns, and sufficient social adaptation. The authors classify the S

among O. Kernberg's (1975) borderline syndromes. (English abstract) (18
