Editorial Reviews

Presents innovative interpretive strategies for both the revised adult version of the MMPI--the MMPI-2--and the first ever adaptation of the MMPI for adolescents--the MMPI-A. The authors, both of whom have extensive experience with the MMPI tests in research and practice, present the rationale for the revisions, and detailed descriptions of how to administer, score, profile, and code the tests--with the major focus on interpretation.
