Overview

This book provides a definitive empirical study of antisocial character pathology and its assessment through the use of the Rorschach. Drawing upon a decade of research with nearly 400 individuals in various hospitals and prisons, the authors paint an extraordinary intrapsychic picture of the personality structure and psychodynamics of these troublesome patients.

Serving as both an educational tool and a reference text, this book presents:
* Rorschach data on several different antisocial groups — conduct disordered children and adolescents, antisocial personality disordered adult males with and without schizophrenia, antisocial adult females, and male and female sexual homicide perpetrators;
* nomothetic (group) and idiographic (case study) data;
* data which have been analyzed and theoretically interpreted using both structural methods and psychoanalytic approaches which represent the cutting edge of Rorschach theory and practice; and
* a developmental approach in analyzing Rorschach data gathered from antisocial children, adolescents, and adults — providing striking similarities.

This is the first Rorschach database of this type that has ever been published. As such, it serves as a valuable reference text for Rorschach users — providing a definitive empirical base, theoretical integration, and a focus on individuals who create severe problems for society.
