This webinar on Incorporating the MMPI-2-RF in Malingering Determinations is presented by Martin Sellbom, PhD.

This intermediate level webinar will discuss the role of the 338-item version of the MMPI-2, the MMPI-2 Restructured Form (MMPI-2-RF) in the assessment of malingering. This webinar will assume background and basic interpretation knowledge of the MMPI-2-RF and forensic assessment. The majority of the time will be devoted to discussing the MMPI-2-RF validity scales used for the assessment of over-reporting of psychopathology and somatic/cognitive complaints and how these scales can be used as evidence for a malingering determination. Research supporting the scales’ use for this purpose will be discussed. The webinar ends with case illustrations.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this webinar you will be able to:

  • Describe the psychometric findings available to guide MMPI-2-RF interpretation of validity scales assessing over reporting

  • Describe various considerations for using the MMPI-2-RF in malingering determinations

  • Describe how to interpret the MMPI-2-RF overreporting validity scales in the context of evaluating for malingering
