Overview

User-friendly yet sophisticated, Psychological Assessment With the MMPI-2 will be welcomed by practicing psychologists, researchers, and students alike. This long-awaited second edition constitutes the single most comprehensive and up-to-date textbook of MMPI-2 interpretation. Completely rewritten to address the changes to the original instrument that resulted in the MMPI-2 in l989, it describes in detail all the MMPI-2 scales—clinical, supplementary, and content—and offers empirically-grounded and clinically-tested recommendations for their use. The last decade has seen an explosion of research, as well as a steady accumulation of experiential wisdom; bridging the gap between behavioral science and practice, the authors review all the major findings and their implications and draw on rich clinical material to illuminate the issues.

This second edition:
* helps users with forensic interests including attorneys needing a reference for expert review;
* gives step-by-step advice on interpreting profiles;
* includes treatment recommendations in the explanation of every code pattern;
* provides extensive guidance on report-writing for new users;
* compares the most current MMPI-2 computer reports;
* features numerous tables, figures, and appendices for all the MMPI-2 scales including the newer validity measures; and
* incorporates 570 references (235 completely new).
