RODRIGUEZ SUTIL, Carlos. Personality and personality disorders assessment by means of (Performace-based) projective thecniques. Clínica y Salud [online]. 2007, vol.18, n.3, pp.325-346. ISSN 1130-5274.
This paper reviews performance-based projective techniques, particularly Rorschach in terms of their use as assessment tools. An updated definition of the assessment methods and a clarification of the concept of personality disorders are outlined, along with a number of issues concerning Rorschachs validity and reliability. Finally, an approach to the process of personality disorders assessment is suggested with a focus on especially serious disorders -i.e., schizotypal, narcissistic, antisocial and borderline personality disorders.
