INTRODUCTION TO THE CRISI WARTEGG SYSTEM (CWS)
January 31, 2020, Helsinki, Finland
Alessandro Crisi, Psy.D. & Emiliano Muzio, Ph.D.
The Wartegg Drawing Completion Test (WDCT) is a projective drawing technique that can be completed in 5 – 10 minutes and is appropriate for children, adolescents, and adults. It is easy to administer and not overwhelming for clients to complete. A recent meta-analysis (Grønnerød & Grønnerød, 2012) attests to its reliability and validity in assessing personality and psychopathology. It was also recently recognized as a valid performance-based personality test that can be used for certification in Steven E. Finn’s Therapeutic Assessment. Created in 1926 by the German psychologist Ehrig Wartegg (1897 – 1983), the WDCT consists of eight boxes, each containing an ambiguous mark. The client completes each panel by making a meaningful drawing that incorporates the mark in that panel.
The Crisi Wartegg System (CWS) is a methodology for using the WDCT that rigorously scores and interprets the drawings of the clients. Psychologists in Italy, Japan, Scandinavia, South America and, more recently, in the United States frequently use the CWS in psychological assessments. It is also a selection tool of the Italian military. An English manual for the method, including a broad overview of reliability and validity research, was published in 2018.
Goals: This seminar introduces the CWS. By the end of the seminar, participants will be able to: list the steps required for proper administration and the major scoring categories; correctly score specific scoring domains (EC and AQ); and understand basic principles of interpretation according to the CWS. No previous use of the test is required, although thorough grounding in psychological assessment and theory is recommended.
