[Autom. eng. transl.] The Compendium for the Comprehensive System is a fundamental text for those who, beginners or expert rorschachists, intend to apply to the Rorschach test the procedures and the markings elaborated by JE Exner. Exner - an American psychologist who has faced the central problem of Rorschach response marking procedures since the 1960s - has devised this system by making a comparative study of the five most used Rorschach systems in America (Klopfer, Hertz, Beck, Piotrowski and Rapaport-Shafer). The Comprehensive System is based on specific criteria for the collection of answers, for the inquiry, for the marking and allows the creation of a summary table of data (called the Structural Summary), which provides the indispensable elements for the clinical diagnosis of the subject tested. Published for the first time in 1974 and introduced in Italy in 1984, the Comprehensive System over the years has been enriched with new additions, all present in this edition, and has become a basic tool that allows the clinician to formulate hypotheses on the structure and functioning psychological of the subject. The text is divided into three parts: the first describes the process of gathering and marking the answers, in the second the areas used for each table for the answer and the reference data of the sample of patients and non-patients are shown (statistical values ), while the third one proposes some exercises (and relative verification) that should put the reader in the condition to arrive correctly to sign.
