An illustrative guide for using the MMPI-2-RF in forensic assessment A primary aim of this text is to inform readers of the most common forensic applications of the instrument and, in doing so, provide a brief overview of the various psycho-legal issues addressed. Each type of forensic psychological evaluation considers challenges both general (e.g., the potential for response bias) and unique (e.g., retrospective assessment in criminal responsibility evaluations), including the impact such challenges have on the use of the MMPI-2-RF in these contexts. The major focus of the book is on MMPI-2-RF interpretation developed through specific case analyses involving the most common psycho-legal questions. Each chapter includes a case study with a full MMPI-2-RF profile illustrating the interpretation and integration of test data into clinical and diagnostic impressions and generating forensic opinions.
