Admission Rorschach variables were compared to 2-year reevaluation responses of adolescents (n = 50) in residential treatment using Werner ana Exner's (1991) 27 structural variables. Fifty adolescents who had previously failed to improve in outpatient treatment and multiple hospitalizations were subsequently placed in residential treatment. Following 2 years of residential treatment, they showed positive personality changes as indicated by a reduction in Rorschach indices of impaired functioning. Positive treatment changes in interpersonal, awareness were discussed utilizing a social identification index formulated for this population. Results indicate the utility of the Rorschach test-retest. method of assessing treatment outcome.
