MMPI-2 Correlates for Outpatient Community Mental Health Settings

1999
Authors:

John R. Graham, John L. McNulty, and Yossef S. Ben-Porath
Foreword by James N. Butcher

MMPI-2 Correlates for Outpatient Community Mental Health Settings

The first major collection of outpatient data on the MMPI-2, the most widely used personality assessment test in the world.

With the introduction of managed care to mental health treatment, patients increasingly are being seen in outpatient settings. Although the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory-2 and its predecessor, the MMPI, have long been used for outpatient assessment, the bulk of research on the test has been done at inpatient psychiatric hospitals. This volume provides the first extensive set of correlates for the MMPI-2 in outpatient settings, showing the relationship of MMPI-2 scores to clinically relevant behavior.

“This book is one of the most important works published on the most widely used personality test, the MMPI-2, and it firmly establishes the instrument’s empirical interpretive base for contemporary personality description.” James N. Butcher, from the Foreword

The first major collection of outpatient data on the MMPI-2, the most widely used personality assessment test in the world.

With the introduction of managed care to mental health treatment, patients increasingly are seen and treated in outpatient settings. Although the MMPI-2 and its predecessor, the MMPI, have long been used for outpatient assessment, the bulk of research on the test has been performed at inpatient psychiatric hospitals. This volume presents the first extensive set of correlates for the MMPI-2 in outpatient settings, demonstrating the relationship of MMPI-2 scores to clinically relevant behavior.

Reporting the results of a large-scale research project on the use of the MMPI-2 in community mental health centers, this study provides clinically useful information concerning the interpretation of MMPI-2 scores and code types. Because the research found that the correlates in outpatient mental health settings are essentially the same as those in other settings, this book will be a standard reference for all clinicians who use the MMPI-2, regardless of where they work.

“A well-written, well-organized presentation. The literature is extensively reviewed, both in terms of prototypic studies reporting MMPI interpretive correlates, as well as those performed by one or more of the authors using the MMPI-2. This comprehensive literature review and the knowledge base of the authors are quite laudable.” Linda Nelson, University of California, Irvine

“This timely book presents extremely important data for the clinical and research communities. It is unusually comprehensive and thorough, representing what is probably the best effort to date at providing external correlates of MMPI-2 scales.” David Berry, University of Kentucky
