This webinar presentation focus is on the MMPI-2-RF use in the Forensic Practice.

Composed of 338 items, with the RC (Restructured Clinical) Scales at its core, the MMPI-2-RF builds on the strengths of the MMPI®-2. It features 51 new and revised empirically validated scales and takes only 35-50 minutes to administer. The MMPI-2-RF was released in August 2008.

The MMPI-2-RF aids clinicians in the assessment of mental disorders, identification of specific problem areas, and treatment planning in a variety of settings. In forensic evaluations, the test can be used to help:

  • Assess the test-taking approach.  Specifically, evaluate the test-taker's ability to respond relevantly and consistently to the test items and identify over- and under-reporting.
  • Assess major symptoms of psychopathology, personality characteristics, and behavioral proclivities.
  • Give strong empirical foundation for expert testimony.
