The Reisman Diagnostic Creativity Assessment Special Interest Group (RDCA SIG) was inaugurated on August 11, 2015 at the 2015 edition of the KIE Conference. The RDCA SIG was constituted to honour an aspect of the work of Dr Fredricka K. Reisman, immediate-past president of the American Creativity Association and Co-Director of the Drexel-Torrance Centre for Creativity and Innovation, Philadelphia, USA. The RDCA SIG Presentations is moderated by Dr Larry Keiser, Clinical Assistant Professor and Director of Special Projects & Certification Officer at Drexel University, USA, and a co-developer of the RDCA tool. The RDCA SIG has done a number of presentations in the past seven years – including The Power of Becoming Aware of Our Creative Strengths and Weaknesses—and How this Helped Us Cope with Life Changing Happenings! (2018) and A creative exploration of autism, dyslexia and dyscalculia (2017).

*RDMA stands for the Reisman Diagnostic Motivation Assessment. Recently, three forms of the RDMA were created for corporate employees, school teachers and students – grade 8 (school children aged 13 -14) through (post) graduation students.
