Incorporating the MMPI-3 in Personal Injury and Disability Evaluations

For intermediate-level practitioners, we are offering a 1.5-hour webinar that will cover MMPI-3 in Personal Injury and Disability Evaluations. Dr. Martin Sellbom will use the bulk of the time on case illustrations, demonstrating how to use the MMPI-3 in personal injury and disability evaluations, as well as highlighting scientific support for the tool. 

Given the nuanced nature of this webinar, background and basic interpretation of the MMPI-3 and forensic assessment will be expected for all participating mental health professionals.
