This on-demand professional training program on MMPI-2-RF (Restructured Form) in Forensic Psychological Evaluations is presented by Martin Sellbom, PhD.
This introductory-level program discusses the role of the 338-item version of the MMPI-2, the MMPI-2 Restructured Form (MMPI-2-RF) to psychologists working in forensic settings. The rationale for and methods used to develop the MMPI-2-RF, the various materials available to score and interpret the test, and the psychometric functioning of its scales are covered. The majority of the time is devoted to applications of the MMPI-2-RF in both criminal (e.g., competency to stand trial, criminal responsibility, risk assessment) and civil (e.g., parental capacity) forensic evaluations, with case illustrations for each psycho-legal question being emphasized. This section also includes a brief discussion on how to defend MMPI-2-RF opinions in court for general purposes of use, with an emphasis on Daubert and Frye's challenges.
