Whatever approach one might favor, the future of projective techniques lies in our capacity to collaborate at international and interdisciplinary levels. Isolation will only weaken our scientific position and expose us to more criticism. The Editorial Board of Rorschachiana hopes to modestly contribute to this endeavor by becoming a platform for interdisciplinary dialogs. Volume 32 of Rorschachiana contains a variety of topics that are explored using different lenses. A study by Arnon, Maoz, Gazit, and Klein establishes key indicators for the Rorschach Comprehensive System which can contribute to the diagnosis of posttraumatic stress disorder. Guinzbourg demonstrates how the Rorschach can be useful in understanding various subtypes of eating disorders in her study comparing 106 eating disorder patients to a normative sample. Verdon’s comprehensive review of the use of the Thematic Apperception Test with older adults is an elegant and thought-provoking contribution to a field that is gaining momentum. Ikiz narrates how the Rorschach Test was adopted in Turkey and discusses some of the challenges the use of the test has encountered over the years. Finally, Carstairs shows how projective methods can be an invaluable addition to the assessment of parents in cases of child neglect. The Special Section of this volume is introduced by our Guest Editor Professor Latife Yazigi, who has collated a variety of contributions on the use of projective methods with children and adolescents.
