DESCRIPTION: 

The material presented in the course is based on illustrative MMPI-A-RF case studies. The course provides a broad overview of the MMPI-A-RF, as well as interpretative strategy. The book focuses on detailed forensic issues, including legal backgrounds, case law, and assessment methods specific to use of the MMPI-A-RF in juvenile court and related settings. It will assist clinicians in understanding MMPI-A-RF interpretation, while also being a valuable teaching tool for courses in assessment.

This book continues the goal of serving as an authentic guide for clinicians in understanding and using the MMPI-A-RF. The interpretive model described in this book demonstrates how the MMPI-A-RF can assist clinicians in assessing youth today by highlighting sixteen cases that broadly represent adolescents evaluated in clinical and forensic practice.
