Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Up-to-date, detailed, and comprehensive, MMPI-2: Assessing Personality and Psychopathology, 3/e, encompasses all that has been learned about the original MMPI (Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory) and its revisions--the MMPI-2 for use with adults and the MMPI-A for use with adolescents. Ideal for graduate courses in psychological assessment, it is also useful as a reference guide for researchers and clinicians. The text begins by describing the development and revision of the original MMPI and then focuses on the MMPI-2, presenting detailed instructions for administering, scoring, and coding the test. The interpretation of validity, clinical, content, and supplementary scales is discussed and illustrated with cases. A section concerning the use of the MMPI-2 with special populations such as older adults, ethnic minorities, medical patients, and prisoners is also included. The development of the MMPI-A is described and its interpretation is illustrated.

This new edition incorporates information from a large number of recent empirical research studies and includes approximately 400 new references. It also provides details on several new scales that were developed after the MMPI-2 was published. Two new validity scales, Superlative (S) and Infrequency-Psychopathology F(p), and two addiction scales, Addiction Acknowledgment (AAS) and Addiction Potential (APS), are presented. The Hostility (Ho) scale, which has been very successful in predicting negative health events such as coronary artery disease, is also described. This third edition adds a new chapter on forensic applications of the MMPI-2, and offers appendixes containing a wealth of technical information about the numerous MMPI-2 scales.

Used widely throughout the U.S. and around the world, the MMPI-2 is a unique, invaluable instrument. Thorough and practical, MMPI-2: Assessing Personality and Psychopathology, 3/e, enables students, researchers, and clinicians to understand this important tool and use it effectively.

Synopsis:

Up-to-date and comprehensive, this book provides information about the development of the original MMPI and its revised instruments. Detailed instructions for administering, scoring, and coding the MMPI-2 are presented, and interpretation of validity, clinical, content, and supplementary states is discussed and illustrated with cases. This third edition adds a new chapter on forensic applications of the MMPI-2.

Synopsis:

Four years after the introduction of the revised Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory, the MMPI-2 is regarded throughout the world as a unique, invaluable instrument. Completely revised and updated, MMPI-2: Assessing Personality and Psychopathology, Second Edition encompasses all that has been learned about the original and revised tests. An interpretive strategy is presented and illustrated with several cases. A new section has been added concerning how feedback on MMPI-2 results should be presented to clients. The chapter on supplementary scales includes information about two new alcohol abuse scales and a marital distress scale. The book critically analyzes the use of the MMPI-2 with special groups, such as older adults, ethnic minorities, medical patients, correctional subjects, and subjects in nonclinical settings. An expanded chapter addresses the psychometric characteristics of the original MMPI and of the MMPI-2 and includes information concerning comparability of the two tests. Computerized use of the MMPI-2 is considered and a computerized interpretation is compared with a clinician-generated interpretation. The development of the MMPI-A, the adolescent version of the test, is presented along with a detailed approach to interpreting the results of this new test. This book is essential to students in personality assessment courses learning about the MMPI-2 and MMPI-A as well as to professionals who use these two tests in research and clinical work.

Synopsis:

In the 50 years since work on the MMPI was initiated at the University of Minnesota, the instrument has come to be the most widely used in the United States and around the world. The first and second editions of this book were hailed as classics and provided a generation of students and

practicing clinicians with an invaluable guide to the MMPI. In MMPI-2: Assessing Personality and Psychopathology, John Graham again presents a detailed, comprehensive textbook for both students and clinicians and introduces the new MMPI-2 in clear and understandable language. A member of the team

that developed the MMPI-2, Dr. Graham is uniquely qualified to offer his insight and advice on the new instrument and its use. The book begins with the rationale underlying the MMPI and presents historical information about scale development and standardization of the original instrument.

Differences between the original MMPI and MMPI-2 are clearly delineated. Chapter two describes MMPI-2 test materials and procedures for administering and scoring the instrument and for coding the resulting profile of scores. Chapter 3 is devoted to consideration of the validity scales. Each of

the 10 standard clinical scales is discussed in Chapter 4, and suggestions are made for interpreting scores at various T-score levels. An interpretation of two-and-three point code types and other profile configurations is covered in Chapter 5, and Chapter 6 presents several different approaches to

content interpretation. Next, Chapter 7 covers some frequently used supplementary scales and introduces several new scales for MMPI-2. In Chapter 8 psychometric characteristics of the MMPI-2 are examined, and the instrument's use with special populations is discussed. Chapter 9 presents the

author's general strategy for interpreting MMPI-2s, and the strategy is illustrated with a case. Finally, Chapter 10 focuses on the computerized use of the instrument.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 386-426) and indexes.
