This third edition of Robert Archer's classic step-by-step guide to the MMPI-A continues the tradition of the first two in presenting the essential facts and recommendations for students, clinicians, and researchers interested in understanding and utilizing this assessment instrument to its fullest.

Special features of the third edition include:

  • presentation of appropriate administration criteria;
  • updated references to document the recent development of an increasingly solid empirical foundation--more than 160 new ones;
  • extensive review of new MMPI-A scales and subscales including the content component scales and the PSY-5 scales;
  • expanded variety of clinical examples; and
  • a new chapter on the rapidly expanding forensic uses of the MMPI-A, including those in correctional facilities and in custody or personal injury evaluations.

Review:

Praise for the second edition:

"...the single most comprehensive reference for application of MMPI and MMPI-A to the evaluation of adolescents. Even experienced clinicians will be especially impressed by a series of case studies that demonstrate the value of the MMPI-A in the evaluation of psychiatric patients."
Contemporary Psychology

"...this is a very thorough, well-written book....thorough and evenhanded in addressing research and clinical issues. It provides a great deal of information about correlates and excellent guidelines regarding how to organize the data and interpret the resulting profile....recommend this book both to professors as a book through which to introduce clinicians in training to the MMPI-A and to professionals seeking a review or reference text on the MMPI-A."
PsycCRITIQUES

"[It's] fair to say that [it] is the most current, comprehensive, and authoritative MMPI-A guide. [It] places at users' fingertips all the information needed to administer, score, and interpret the MMPI based on the most current knowledge about the test and experience with its use."
Yossef S. Ben-Porath
