Abstract

The Rorschach test provides useful information to identify personality traits, which result more difficult to derive from direct observation and contact with the patient, in order to improve diagnostic evaluation and treatment planning. The aim of our paper is to highlight the Rorschach Comprehensive System Indexes that characterize the psychological functioning of a group of college students, referred to a University Clinical Service, in order to foster the planning of their treatment. The methodology consisted in the analysis of the Rorschach protocols of 15 students aged 19 - 27 yr (9 female, 6 males). The Rorschach test was administered before a psychological treatment for academic and interpersonal difficulties, anxiety, sadness, self-confidence, self-esteem, and sexual disfunctioning. Results show a students' profile of individuals in overwhelmed state that impairs their ideational and affective available resources. Self-perception and interpersonal areas show some immaturity and narcissistic traits. Therefore, the relational dimension was considered as a starting point for the treatment, offering a psychological space for the working through of interpersonal representations.
