Introduction to Using the MMPI-3 in Psychological Practice

For clinical psychologists, our 4-hour MMPI-3 live workshop will award 4 CE credits and cover a variety of frameworks. We will use cases to illustrate the coursework, emphasizing practical application. 

MMPI-3 is a personality assessment geared to diagnosing a patient’s potential mental health problems, and is best suited to mental health, medical, forensic, and public safety environments. With the knowledge gleaned from this workshop, you will be better equipped for scenarios such as proving or disproving whether or not your patient should be held accountable for their actions.

Given the depth and breadth of this workshop, there is something for all psychologists here. 


December 11, 11:00am - 3:00pm PST
