The Bell Object Relations and Reality Testing Inventory (BORRTI), devel- oped by Morris D.

It is a self-report inventory for adults that can be administered individually or in groups in 20 minutes or less and can identify clients with certain personality disorders (nar- cissistic and borderline) and psychoses. Published by Western Psychological Services, the inventory (full form or Object Relations only) can only be com- puter-scored through a mail-in service, fax service, or microcomputer disk. GENERAL INFORMATION The BORRTI has 90 true-false self-statements measuring Object Relations, "the way an individual conducts relationships and experiences himself or her- self in relation to others" (Bell, 1995, p. 48), and Reality Testing, the way an individual adapts to the environment and is able to separate self from nonself (Bell, 1995). The 45 items for Object Relations yield four scales-Alienation (basic lack of trust in relationships), Insecure Attachment (very sensitive to rejection and easily hurt), Egocentricity (self-protective and exploitive of oth- ers), and Social Incompetence http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment SAGE
