The Finnish Rorschach Association (FRA) is a professional organization of psychologists and member of the International Society of the Rorschach and Projective Methods (ISR). Its purpose is to:
- bring together users of the Rorschach who work with scientific evidence-based Rorschach coding and intepretation systems
- organize training and practice of the method in our country
- promote scientific, particularly international, collaborations
The association was founded in 1995 and has now 150 members. Members are licensed psychologists, specialized in the Rorschach, administered, coded and interpreted according to Exner’s Comprehensive System (CS: Exner, 2003). FRA considers both Exner’s CS and the CS-based Rorschach Performance Assessment System (R-PAS: Meyer, Viglione, Mihura, Erard & Erdberg, 2011) to be evidence-based and useful personality assessment tools in the hands of the duly trained psychologist.
The association also recommends that CS users switch to using the Comprehensive System – Revised (CS-R: Exner, Andronikof & Fontan, 2022; Exner, Fontan & Andronikof, 2022; Smith, Weinberger-Katzav & Fontan, 2022) by 2024. While the CS remains a viable system in the hands of the adequately trained psychologist, the CS-R represents a long-awaited and useful revision to the CS in light of new data.
The association organizes at least two two-day seminars (workshops) on the Rorschach a year for its members. Guest lecturers are leading international experts on the Rorschach and personality assessment.
