Presenter: Patrick Fontan, Laboratoire IPSé EA CLIPSYD 4430, UFR SPSE, Paris West University, France
CHESSSS is a free software solution to score and compute the Roschach Comprehensive System and Supplementary Scales (Fontan et al, 2013). This application is focused on the needs of clinicians and researchers using the CS : scoring reliability, assistance in protocol interpretation, scoring of Form Qualities, scoring of Supplementary scales, interrater reliability and management of databases. The workshop is for users already familiar with CHESSSS and will be focused on the advanced features of CHESSSS : management of databases, computation of sample norms and statistical analysis. Participants should come with their computers as practical exercices will be proposed.

The goal of this workshop is provide an overview for all participants of the use of the RIM within forensic and correctional applications related to the assessment of violence risk, treatment planning, and institutional management and community control. A brief review of the construct of psychopathy and psychopathy assessment within criminal and forensic populations with the Psychopathy Checklist-Revised (PCL-R; Hare, 2003) combined with an examination of the measurement of psychopathy with the Rorschach Comprehensive System. A secondary goal of the workshop will be the integration of Rorschach and PCL-R findings with a variety of violence risk and psychological assessment measures. A number of case examples will be provided in order to elicit the finer points of the assessment of violence risk and appropriate treatment planning for criminal and forensic populations. Finally, the workshop will conclude with a discussion of guidelines for forensic report writing, the presentation and defense of Rorschach, PCL-R and violence risk and psychological assessment measures in court, and recommendations for placement, management, treatment planning, and application of findings to specific legal referral questions faced by the Trier of Fact.
