This on-demand webinar on Incorporating the MMPI-3 in Malingering Determinations is presented by Martin Sellbom, Ph.D.
This intermediate-level webinar discusses the role of the recently released 335-item MMPI-3 in the assessment of malingering. This webinar assumes background and basic interpretation knowledge of both the MMPI-3 and forensic assessment. The majority of the time is devoted to discussing the MMPI-3 Validity scales used for the assessment of overreporting 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.
