About this title

Synopsis:

In clear, accessible language, this book introduces readers to the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory-2 (MMPI-2), the most widely researched and broadly used personality assessment instrument. James N. Butcher, one of the authors of the MMPI-2, explains how the instrument was developed to describe and predict behavior in a range of applied settings. Guidance is provided for administering and interpreting the results, with case studies to illustrate major concepts. Several updates have been made since the previous edition of this popular book, including new interpretive information on the MMPI-2, new areas for application of the MMPI-2, and--most importantly--a new chapter on the MMPI-2 Restructured Form (MMPI-2-RF), a separate short instrument that beginners may confuse with the MMPI-2. This user-friendly but comprehensive primer is essential reading for nonpsychologist professionals who need a quick overview of the test, as well as for students of clinical and personality assessment who seek a reliable introductory text.

About the Author:

James N. Butcher, PhD, earned his bachelor's degree in psychology at Guilford College in Greensboro, North Carolina, and both his master's degree in experimental psychology and his doctorate in clinical psychology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Currently a professor emeritus in psychology at the University of Minnesota and former editor of the American Psychological Association's journal Psychological Assessment, he 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. He was selected by the University of Minnesota Press to serve on the committee to revise and restandardize the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory (MMPI). He founded both the annual Symposium on Recent Developments in the Use of the MMPI and the International Conference on Personality Assessment. Recent books include A Beginner's Guide to the MMPI-A (with Carolyn L. Williams, 2011), Oxford Handbook of Personality (2009), Practitioner's Guide to the MMPI-2 (2006), Use of the MMPI-2 in Court (3rd ed., with Ken Pope and Joyce Seelen, 2006), and Abnormal Psychology in Modern Life (14th ed., with Susan Mineka and Jill Hooley, 2010). Dr. Butcher also consults and testifies as an expert witness in trials involving the MMPI.
