  • Remaining Current in Assessment: Adopting the MMPI-2-RF in Your Practice

    Presenter: David M. McCord, PhD

    Topic(s):

    The MMPI-2-RF was published in 2008 and over the last ten years approximately half of adult assessments have transitioned to the updated version of the inventory. This webinar is intended for practitioners who have yet to adopt the MMPI-2-RF who wish to know the benefits of doing so and how this might affect their practice.

    Join Dr. David McCord of Western Carolina University as he discusses how to remain current in assessment by transitioning to the MMPI-2-RF and how the test’s transparent, straightforward interpretation leads to a better understanding of test results. Dr. McCord will offer illustrative case comparisons that demonstrate how using the MMPI-2-RF can enhance clinical effectiveness and efficiency.

  • Assessing Personality Disorders with the MMPI-2-RF

    Presenter: Martin Sellbom, PhD

    Topic(s):

    The MMPI-2-RF scales measure a wide range of psychological constructs many of which are relevant to personality disorders.

Basic links between the MMPI-2-RF and the alternative model for personality disorders (in DSM-5 Section III) will be covered as well.  The webinar will conclude with a brief case example.

    Prior to attending this webinar it is recommended that you have attended the MMPI-2-RF: Basic Overview webinar or that you have an understanding of the empirical foundations of the MMPI-2-RF.

  • MMPI-2-RF: Use in Trauma and Stressor-Related Disorders

    Presenter: Paul Arbisi, PhD, ABAP, ABPP

    Topic(s):

    The MMPI-2-RF is frequently used as part of a comprehensive evaluation of trauma-exposed individuals to aid in diagnostic formulation and treatment planning. In this webinar, Dr. Arbisi will discuss the utility of the MMPI-2-RF in assessing trauma-related conditions and how dysfunctional emotional and behavioral response to stressors can be identified and characterized. Further, the utility of the MMPI-2-RF in identifying common trauma-related co-morbid conditions will be illustrated. Finally, specific MMPI-2-RF scales associated with compliance and trauma-specific interventions will be reviewed and implications for treatment planning will be discussed.

    Prior to attending this webinar it is recommended that you have attended the MMPI-2-RF: Basic Overview webinar or that you have an understanding of the empirical foundations of the MMPI-2-RF.

  • Case Demonstrations Using the MMPI-2-RF Police Candidate Interpretive Report (PCIR)

    Presenter: Dave Corey, PhD, ABPP

  • MMPI-2-RF: Basic Overview

    Presenter: Dustin B. Wygant, PhD

    Topic(s):

    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. 

    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.
