The MMPI-2 is the most widely used personality test in the United States and around the world. It is employed in mental health settings, medical centers, and correctional programs, and is frequently admitted as evidence in legal proceedings. In addition, use of the MMPI-2 in the process of screening applicants for jobs that involve public trust and safety is spreading rapidly.
The fourth edition of MMPI-2: Assessing Personality and Psychopathology describes effective uses of the MMPI-2 and explains how to accurately interpret test results. Current and comprehensive, it presents detailed instructions for administering, scoring, and coding the MMPI-2. It also discusses the most recent interpretations of the test's validity, clinical content, and supplementary scales; illustrating points with case studies and examples. In addition, the book covers two new sets of scales: the Restructured Clinical (RC) scales, which help focus the interpretation of the original clinical scales; and the Personality Psychopathology 5 (PSY-5) scales, which assess major dimensions of normal and abnormal personality.
