Rorschach Workshops® Information

(this page revised August, 2006)


Rorschach Workshops’® last training course was their June, 2006 tutorial. The new entity, "Rorschach Training Programs", offers ongoing training in the CS (click here for more information about RTP). Books and other material for the Comprehensive System continue to be sold through the Rorschach Workshops web site, RorschachWorkshops.com. Because the Exner family benefits from purchases made directly, we urge you to purchase your CS material from their website.
