M.M.P.I.-2 : Assessing Personality and Psychopathology
Completely revised and updated, MMPI-2: Assessing Personality and Psychopathology, Second Edition encompasses all that has been learned about the MMPI-2 in the last 4 years. One chapter is devoted to recently developed supplementary scales, including two alcohol abuse scales and a marital distress scale. The book examines the use of the MMPI-2 with special groups, such as older adults, ethnic minorities, medical patients, correctional subjects, and subjects in nonclinical settings. A detailed interpretive strategy developed by the author is presented and illustrated with several cases. The development of the MMPI-A, the adolescent version of the test, is discussed, and a strategy for interpreting the results of this new test is included. This work is essential to students in personality assessment courses learning about the MMPI-2 as well as to professionals who use the MMPI-2 and the MMPI-1 in research and clinical work.
