Summary
Psychologists and other expert witnesses who testify about the MMPI must communicate clearly how the instrument works, why it works, and what it means in the case at hand. They will likely face a carefully crafted cross-examination on such issues as validity, reliability, population norms, nature of t distributions, retrospective and prospective accuracy, sensitivity and specificity, item correlations, malingering and other forms of faking, common problems with computer scoring and interpretation, and recent research affecting interpretations. Attorneys inviting or encountering expert testimony must be prepared to challenge (or anticipate a challenge to) the premises, inferences, databases, decision rules, and other aspects of expert testimony regarding the MMPI. This book provides the information needed to successfully prepare for trials and participate in court testimony involving the MMPI. This edition incorporates research, legislation, and case law that have emerged since the 1st edition was published in 1993 as well as recent developments, such as the test publisher"s decision to no longer make the original MMPI available. In addition to the extensive appendixes of the 1st edition, a variety of new appendixes have been added. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2004 APA, all rights reserved)
