Description
This intermediate workshop presents an evidence-based approach to using the MMPI-2-RF — the most recent version of the MMPI — in police and public safety evaluations. The workshop begins with an overview of pre-employment psychological evaluations and fitness-for-duty evaluations of police and public safety candidates and personnel, with an emphasis on consideration of guidelines available to practitioners who conduct them, followed by an overview of the MMPI-2-RF. A detailed discussion of the empirical evidence available to guide its use in police and public safety evaluations follows.
Learning Objectives
1. Conduct empirically grounded evaluations of police and public safety candidates and incumbents referred for fitness-for-duty evaluations.
2. Apply available professional guidelines when conducting these evaluations.
3. Describe the rationale for and methods used in developing the MMPI-2-RF.
4. List the 51 MMPI-2-RF scales.
5. Discuss the applicability of the MMPI-2-RF scales for police and public safety evaluations.
6. Explain the empirical basis for using lower (than traditional clinical) cutoffs when evaluating police and public safety candidates.
7. Apply the MMPI-2-RF Police Candidate Report in assessments of law enforcement candidates.
