Özlem Ergin, Zeynep Set.

Abstract
One of the most widely used projective test is Rorschach Inblot Test. Apart from the psychoanalytic interpretation and interpretation of the test based on psychometric scoring there are also interpretations based on different theoretical background. One of these is the interpretation of the Rorschach test from an existential perspective. There are examples of Rorschach Inkblot Test which has interpretation on existential perspective especially with cancer patient. While existential concerns may be experienced in people who are at risk of death due to an illness, interpreting the Rorschach test from an existential perspective provides useful information to examine the mental state of individuals towards this disease. Therefore, this research is about a Rorschach Inkblot Test report from an existential perspective which applied to the young adult who was diagnosed with Human Immunodeficiency Virus Infection (HIV).

Key words: Rorschach Test, Existentialism, projective techniques, HIV, interpretation

Testin psikometrik puanlamaya dayanan ve psikanalitik yorumu dışında farklı kuramsal temellere dayanan yorumları da vardır. Bunlar-dan biri Rorschach testinin varoluşsal açıdan yorumlanmasıdır. Özellikle kanser hastalarıyla yapılan uygulamaların-da varoluşsal temelde yorumlama örneklerine rastlanmaktadır. Bir hastalık nedeniyle ölüm riski ile karşılaşan kişiler-de varoluşsal kaygıların yaşanabileceği bilinirken, kişilerin bu hastalık karşısındaki ruhsal durumunu incelemek için Rorschach testinin varoluşsal açıdan yorumlanması faydalı bilgiler sağlamaktadır. Bu bağlamda, çalışmada insan immun yetmezlik virüsü (HIV) tanısı konmuş bir genç yetişkinde varoluşsal temelde Rorschach Mürekkep Lekesi Testi uygulamasına yer verilmiştir.
