Description

This book teaches the application of the MMPI (the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory), the most widely used psychological test in the United States. Individuals take the test by responding to each of 566 statements as being true as applied to them, as false as applied to them, or as not applying to them. The relatively unambiguous questions and the response format qualify the MMPI as an objective technique of personality assessment. Professor Graham has thoroughly revised his widely used book to make it even more valuable to graduate students and clinicians. He critically reviews new findings on how to interpret the MMPI and now provides interpretive information on three-point codes and other configural aspects of the profle. A completely new chapter summarizes information on the MMPI's psychometric properties, as well as its use with subjects different from those on whom it was standardized.show more
