Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
Incorporating the wealth of research and new developments in the field since the publication of the award-winning first edition, this book critically examines malingering and other forms of deception. The second edition has been thoroughly revised to give greater emphasis to clinical methods and applications. Existing chapters expand on topics such as recovered childhood memories and integrity testing, and completely new chapters cover detection of denied substance abuse and self-report measures of malingering. In addition, the volume has been completely updated to incorporate new test methods such as the PAI and MMPI-A, as well as revisions to existing tests, including the MMPI-2 and the MCMI-III.
Widely regarded as the standard reference in the field, this book provides essential tools for understanding and assessing malingering and other response styles in forensic and clinical contexts. An integrating theme is the systematic application of detection strategies as conceptually grounded, empirically validated methods that bridge different measures and populations. Special topics include considerations in working with children and youth. From leading practitioners and researchers, the volume reviews the scientific knowledge base and offers best-practice guidelines for maximizing the accuracy of psychological and psychiatric evaluations.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 427-491) and index.
