See you in Chicago 2016!!
Beginning in November 2014, the IIW will begin a series of Supervision/ Consultation Groups focused on the clinical use of the Wartegg Drawing Completion Test (WDCT) according to the Crisi Wartegg System (CWS). These groups will be led by Professor Alessandro Crisi or, in case of his unavailability, by IIW collaborators. Supervision/ Consultation Groups are available to colleagues who have completed training in the CWS, gained experience in the use of the Wartegg according to the CWS, and currently utilize the Wartegg consistently in their professional activity. The goal of these meetings is to consolidate and deepen expertise in clinical and forensic use of the Wartegg (including with children, adolescents, and adults), and to further develop the integration of the CWS with other frequently used diagnostic tools (i.e., Rorschach, MMPI and MMPI-2-RF, WAIS, AAP, EMP). Each group will consist of 5 participants, and over the sequence of group meetings, each participant will have the opportunity to present a clinical case. Therefore, each supervision/ consultation sequence will consist of 5 sessions each lasting 1½ hours. Attendance at all meetings is expected.

The Scientific Committee of the XXI Rorschach Congress (Istanbul, July 2014) has invited the Italian Institute of Wartegg to held a one-day workshop on the CWS (Crisi Wartegg System).
Stockholm - Sponsored by the Swedish Rorschach Society
The Rorschach inkblots and Wartegg Drawing Completion Test (WDCT) were developed very close to each other in time, and both have been shown to be valid and reliable measures of personality and of psychopathology. However, the Rorschach went on to be widely known and hotly debated, while the Wartegg is much less known and has been called the “forgotten test.”
In this intermediate workshop, Alessandro Crisi and Stephen Finn will discuss the similarities, differences, and strengths and weaknesses of the Rorschach and the WDCT, with specific reference to the Crisi Wartegg System for coding and interpreting the Wartegg and the Exner Comprehensive System (CS) and the Rorschach Performance Assessment System (R-PAS) for coding and interpreting the Rorschach. Crisi and Finn will then use a series of clinical case examples to illustrate how the two tests complement each other. Attendees should be familiar with at least one of the two tests.
At the end of the workshop, attendees will:
• Be familiar with the history of both the Rorschach and the Wartegg
• Be able to discuss the similarities and differences and the potential strengths and weaknesses of each test
• Understand guidelines for using the Rorschach and CWS in applied assessments
• Know how to conduct an extended inquiry of the Rorschach andWartegg
