Up-to-date, detailed, and comprehensive, MMPI-2: Assessing Personality and Psychopathology, 3/e, encompasses all that has been learned about the original MMPI (Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory) and its revisions--the MMPI-2 for use with adults and the MMPI-A for use with adolescents. Ideal for graduate courses in psychological assessment, it is also useful as a reference guide for researchers and clinicians. The text begins by describing the development and revision of the original MMPI and then focuses on the MMPI-2, presenting detailed instructions for administering, scoring, and coding the test. The interpretation of validity, clinical, content, and supplementary scales is discussed and illustrated with cases. A section concerning the use of the MMPI-2 with special populations such as older adults, ethnic minorities, medical patients, and prisoners is also included. The development of the MMPI-A is described and its interpretation is illustrated.
This new edition incorporates information from a large number of recent empirical research studies and includes approximately 400 new references. It also provides details on several new scales that were developed after the MMPI-2 was published. Two new validity scales, Superlative (S) and Infrequency-Psychopathology F(p), and two addiction scales, Addiction Acknowledgment (AAS) and Addiction Potential (APS), are presented. The Hostility (Ho) scale, which has been very successful in predicting negative health events such as coronary artery disease, is also described. This third edition adds a new chapter on forensic applications of the MMPI-2, and offers appendixes containing a wealth of technical information about the numerous MMPI-2 scales.
Used widely throughout the U.S. and around the world, the MMPI-2 is a unique, invaluable instrument. Thorough and practical, MMPI-2: Assessing Personality and Psychopathology, 3/e, enables students, researchers, and clinicians to understand this important tool and use it effectively.
