An MMPI Handbook

What is the value of such a Handbook? Its primary worth is that it gathers all of the important data and ideas about the MMPI in one place and organizes this knowledge in a clear fashion. Volume One will be useful for the beginning MMPI student, because it starts with the simplest material; but it also carries the reader into the material that is complex and recent. For the sophisticated MMPI’er the Handbook is also very useful as a data bank for research and as a reference work; the second volume will also be needed for this purpose.

An MMPI Handbook, Volume I: Clinical Interpretation was first published in 1972. Minnesota Archive Editions uses digital technology to make long-unavailable books once again accessible, and are published unaltered from the original University of Minnesota Press editions.

This is the first volume of a two-volume revised edition of An MMPI Handbook: A Guide to Use in Clinical Practice by W. Grant Dahlstrom and George Schlager Welsh (out of print). It covers in detail new developments in test administration and scoring, analyses of patterns, and interpretation of findings in the use of the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory. The meaning and use of the various validity indicators for the test are discussed and compared. Technical appendixes have been revised and expanded to include up-to-date information. This is an indispensable practical manual for anyone using the MMPI.
