This On Demand professional training program on Incorporating the MMPI-2-RF (Restructured Form) in Violence Risk Assessment is presented by Martin Sellbom, PhD.

This intermediate-level program discusses the role of the 338-item version of the MMPI-2, the MMPI-2 Restructured Form (MMPI-2-RF) to psychologists who conduct violence risk assessments. This program assumes background and basic interpretation knowledge of the MMPI-2-RF and forensic assessment. The majority of the time is devoted to considerations for using the MMPI-2-RF in violence and sexual reoffending risk assessments, and scientific support for using the test in such evaluations is discussed. Given the importance of psychopathy in these assessments, MMPI-2-RF assessment of such is discussed as well. Multiple case illustrations for which MMPI-2-RF data was used in risk assessments are included.
