when editing multiple RAW images, and making the transfer from the RAW edit screen to the photoshop screen, images become distorted and i have to either zoom out of close all images being worked on and start over. Distortions include, blocks of the image being shuffled around at random, or blank block spaces showing up in the image, all covering large portions of the image. how can i fix this?

What version of Photoshop are you using?
What OS version?
What version of ACR are you using?

That looks like a video card driver bug -- which could be seen in Photoshop or ACR 9.

What OS version are you using?

MacOS 10.10 has several well known video card driver bugs that cause problems in Photoshop and ACR. Apple is aware of these driver bugs and working on solutions. In the meantime, you may need to shut off usage of the GPU in Photoshop and ACR to avoid the OS bugs, or downgrade to a stable version of MacOS if you need the GPU features.

You can get the Photoshop and ACR versions in Help->System Info.
