The MMPI, MMPI-2, and MMPI-A in Court: A Practical Guide for Expert Witnesses and Attorneys, Second Edition
This edition is no longer for sale. However, an updated edition is available.
A best-seller since it was first published in 1993, this newly revised edition is a must-have for anyone likely to encounter one of the most widely used psychology tests in forensic settings, the MMPI (Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory). This new revision incorporates the extensive research, legislation, and case laws that have emerged since the original edition, as well as recent developments such as the test publisher's decision to no longer make the original MMPI available.
The chapter presenting and discussing deposition and cross-examination questions has been expanded to 100 questions. In addition to the extensive appendices of the original edition, a variety of new appendices have been added such as, procedure converting MMPI scores to MMPI-2 norms; expert witness and attorney checklists; list of test translations and translators; and 10 deadly traps of forensic assessment.
This revision of a landmark work organizes and integrates the scientific, legal, and practical information about the MMPI and its forensic uses. It is accessible not only to seasoned attorneys and expert witnesses, but also to psychologists who have never set foot in a courtroom and attorneys who have never heard of the MMPI.
