  • 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.

    The MMPI-2-RF aids clinicians in the assessment of mental disorders, identification of specific problem areas, and treatment planning in a variety of settings. The test can be used to help:

    • 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.

  • Use of the MMPI-2-RF in the Evaluation of Spine Surgery and Spinal Cord Stimulator Candidates

    Presenter: Andrew R. Block, PhD, ABPP

    Topic(s):

    The MMPI-2-RF is used in medical settings to assess patients and design effective treatment strategies based on personality and behavioral characteristics that may impact patient care and surgical outcomes.

  • 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.

    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.
