Synopsis: The MMPI-A is the most widely used personality inventory for adolescents, and there are no two people who know it better than Carolyn L. Williams and James N. Butcher. A Beginner's Guide to the MMPI-A provides an introduction to an assessment standard that is solidly grounded in adolescent psychology. It can be used as a text in graduate classes, as a how-to for psychologists interpreting the MMPI-A, or as a reference book. It is written for a diverse audience to include physicians, social workers, counselors, and attorneys, along with psychologists. Williams and Butcher explain, in jargon-free language, how the MMPI-A was developed and how it can be interpreted using the multiple scales added over its almost 70-year history. The book walks the reader through the steps of test administration, scoring, interpretation, and how to integrate the MMPI-A into a psychological evaluation. The authors also demystify computerized interpretive systems for the MMPI-A. Readers have the opportunity to quiz themselves on how scale scores take shape as interpretive statements, and to interact with 15 case scenarios. Finally, the authors provide step-by-step guidance on the best practices for sharing their interpretive reports with adolescents and parents in MMPI-A feedback sessions.
About the Author:
Carolyn L. Williams, PhD, is an emeritus professor in the Division of Epidemiology and Community Health in the School of Public Health at the University of Minnesota. Her doctoral work was completed at the University of Georgia in clinical psychology with a co-major in child and family development. In 1993 she was named a Fellow of APA (Division 5: Evaluation, Measurement, and Statistics) and a Charter Member and Diplomate of the American Board of Assessment Psychology. Her teaching experience includes courses on adolescent development, psychological assessment, mental health promotion, and cultural diversity and health. She has over 30 years of experience in research, practice, and teaching about the MMPI, MMPI-2, and MMPI-A. She is a co-author of the MMPI-A and many of its scales, including the Content Scales, Content Component Scales, the alcohol-drug problem scales (ACK and PRO), and PSY-5 Scales. With Dr. Butcher, she developed the widely used computerized system, the Minnesota Report: Adolescent Interpretive System and wrote the textbook, Essentials of MMPI-2 and MMPI-A Interpretation. In addition to her work on the MMPI instruments, Professor Williams is a co-creator of Project Northland, published by the Hazelden Foundation. Project Northland is one of the few prevention programs in use in American schools with scientific evidence that its programs actually reduce alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use by adolescents. Project Northland's comprehensive programs involve adolescents, their parents, schools, and local communities. The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism funded Project Northland research from1990 to 2007, and is currently funding follow-up research on a cohort from Chicago.
James N. Butcher, PhD, obtained his bachelor's degree in psychology at Guilford College in Greensboro, North Carolina; MA degree in experimental psychology and PhD in clinical psychology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Dr. Butcher had considerable professional experience with adolescents. His doctoral dissertation addressed adolescent aggression and responses to the MMPI; he served as psychologist and supervisor in adolescent clinical and correctional settings in which the MMPI was used with adolescents. Butcher was awarded Doctor Honoris Causa by the Free University of Brussels, Belgium and received an honorary doctorate from the University of Florence in Italy for his cross-cultural research, much of which was on the MMPI instruments. Currently, he is a professor emeritus in psychology at the University of Minnesota and is a former editor of the APA journal, Psychological Assessment. He consults and testifies as an expert witness in trials involving the MMPI-2 and MMPI-A. Professor Butcher was the lead author of both the MMPI-A and MMPI-2, which resulted from a decade of research collaboration with the MMPI Restandardization Committee and other psychologists from around the country. He developed the Minnesota Reports, a computerized interpretive system, first for the MMPI, and then revised it for the MMPI-2, and MMPI-A (with Carolyn Williams). Recent books include A Beginner's Guide to the MMPI-2, 3rd Ed. (2011); Oxford Handbook of Personality (2009), Assessing Hispanic Clients using the MMPI-2 and MMPI-A (2007, with José Cabiya, Emilia Lucio, and Maria Garrido), Use of the MMPI-2 and MMPI-A in Court, 3rd Edition (2006, with Ken Pope and Joyce Seelan), and Abnormal Psychology in Modern Life, 14th Ed.
