MMPI-2-RF: Basic Overview
Presenter: Yossef S. Ben-Porath
Composed of 338 items, with the RC (Restructured Clinical) Scales at its core, the MMPI-2-RF builds on the strengths of the MMPI®-2. It features 51 new and revised empirically validated scales and takes only 35-50 minutes to administer. The MMPI-2-RF was released in August 2008.

- Assess major symptoms of psychopathology, personality characteristics, and behavioral proclivities.
- Evaluate participants in substance abuse programs and select appropriate treatment approaches.
- Assess medical patients and design effective treatment strategies, including chronic pain management.
- Provide valuable insight for marriage and family counseling.
- Support classification, treatment, and management decisions in criminal justice and correctional settings.
- Identify high-risk candidates in public safety screening and selection settings.
- Give strong empirical foundation for expert testimony in forensic evaluations.
This Webinar presentation provides a brief overview of the rationale for, and methods used to develop the MMPI-2-RF, and the various materials available to score and interpret the test.

Content is intended for those practitioners who routinely assess students between the ages of 6 and 16 for the provision of special services, and have administered the WISC-V. During the presentation, participants will gain practical information to help them in using the WISC-V as part of a comprehensive evaluation. Particular emphasis will be placed on the new components of the WISC-V, such as new subtests, index, and ancillary scores.

The Ounce Scale provides a structure to help parents and other child care providers observe a range of relevant behaviors. This one-hour webinar will provide an overview of the core components of The Ounce Scale – Observation Record, Family Album, and Developmental Profile.
