The Inside Story Self-evaluations Reflecting Basic Rorschach Types

By Molly Harrower, Dawn Bowers Copyright 1987

    This unusual book was written to provide a glimpse into the inner "Rorschach" world of individuals -- psychology students in training -- representing the basic Rorschach subtypes. The Rorschach records of these graduate students in clinical psychology are presented along with their own interpretations and analyses of their records. In short, The Inside Story offers both a new approach to learning projective diagnostic methods such as the Rorschach and a new experience in the adventure of self-understanding.
