This on-demand professional training program on Evaluation of Police Candidate Suitability: Advances in Empirically Based Methods is presented by David M. Corey, PhD, ABPP, in partnership with The American Academy of Forensic Psychology (AAFP).
This program is POST CPE approved for 3 CE hours
This program will discuss findings from empirical research with direct implications for refining predictions of post-hire performance in law enforcement officers. These findings and their related Assessmentmethods (including the use of the MMPI-2-RF) will address suitability criteria involving implicit bias, cultural competence, effective interpersonal engagement (with the public, peers, and supervisors), performance under stress performance during field training, and other targeted interests.
This on-demand professional training program is intended for mental health and other allied professionals
This on-demand professional training program is appropriate for beginner, intermediate, and advanced level clinicians.
Upon completion of this program you will be able to:
Describe no fewer than eight psychological constructs with empirical links to police officer performance
Describe evidence-based strategies for interpreting clinically non-elevated MMPI-2-RF scores of police officer candidates
Describe research findings to assess the malleability of a police officer candidate’s propensity toward implicit bias
Describe psychological constructs that are problematic for police officers at both high and low levels (e.g., control, vigilance, activation, self-importance)
