The Use of the Hare Psychopathy Checklist (PCL-R) and Rorschach Inkblot Method (RIM) in Forensic Psychological Assessment
Abstract and Figures
In the present chapter, we discuss the role of the Hare Psychopathy Checklist-Revised (PCL-R) and Rorschach in forensic psychological assessment. We stress the importance of using a multi-method over a mono-method assessment approach and advocate for the incremental validity of psychological testing over interviews alone as an essential aspect of assessment practice. The ability to integrate the nomothetic strengths of the PCL-R with the idiographic potential of the Rorschach allows for conclusions to be refined into nuanced person-context interactions most useful in areas such as risk assessment, forming diagnostic impressions, and determining treatability. A case example involving an incarcerated antisocial male with a history of exclusively affective violence is presented.
