This luncheon will focus on the Crisi Wartegg System (CWS), a methodology for the clinical use of the Wartegg Drawing Completion Test (WDCT). The WDCT, created in 1926 by the German psychologist Ehrig Wartegg (1897-1983), is a projective drawing technique that can be completed in 5-10 minutes and is appropriate for children, adolescents, and adults. The WDCT consists of eight boxes, labeled 1 to 8, displayed in two parallel rows, with each row consisting of four boxes. Each box is delineated by a thick black margin and contains a different graphic stimulus or “mark”. The client is invited to complete each panel by making a meaningful drawing that incorporates the mark in that panel. The resulting drawings can be rigorously scored and interpreted according to a system developed by the presenter, Dr. Crisi. A recent meta-analysis (Gronnerod & Gronnerod, 2012) attests to its 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 Therapeutic Assessment. Psychologists in Italy, Japan, Scandinavia, and South America frequently use it in psychological assessments. It is also a selection tool of the Italian armed forces. In this luncheon, Dr. Alessandro Crisi will discuss WDCT and demonstrate the utility of the test in a case presentation showing several clinical cases.
