Will the workshops allow me to administer and interpret the MMPI-2-RF, MMPI-A-RF, MMPI-2 and the MMPI-A?

Attendance at workshops (sponsored by Kent State University and coordinated by the University of Minnesota Press) can help you meet the user qualifications necessary to purchase MMPI instrument test materials from Pearson. The MMPI® materials are a Qualification Level "C".

- Licensure or certification to practice in a field related to the purchase - AND / OR

- A doctorate degree in psychology, education, or closely related field with formal training in the ethical administration, scoring, and interpretation of clincal assessments related to the intended use of the assessment. Current enrollment in a degree program in psychology or a closely related field, such as psychiatry or social work. Please note: All workshops assume graduate level course work has been completed in psychological testing and assessments.

Can I purchase the test materials after taking this workshop?
Test materials are purchased from Pearson. Please review their user qualifications.

Can I receive audiotapes of the workshops instead of attending?
We currently do not record our workshop sessions.

Can I purchase the workshop course materials without attending a workshop?
Handouts are provided for all workshops to individuals registered for the courses. We do not sell course materials to individuals not attending the workshops.

All mailed in registrations must be postmarked by the Early Registration deadline in order to receive the discounted rates.

Group discount rates exist for groups of 4 or more individuals. Please have one person serve as the main contact person who will register all participants at the same time and coordinate one payment to cover all participants.

If the workshop is canceled, registrants will receive a full refund of the registration fees paid to the University of Minnesota Press.
What is the complaint policy?

Complaints about the workshops should be sent in writing to our office within 10 days following the workshop. A written response will be given within 30 days.

What's the difference between a workshop and a symposium?
Workshops provide basic to advanced instruction in the interpretation of the MMPI® test instruments, including sessions focusing on the use of the instruments in specific settings such as forensic and personnel.  The Annual Symposium provides an opportunity for researchers to present results of research studies on the instruments either in formal oral presentations or in poster sessions. Presentations are invited via a Call for Papers.

If I am interested in a topic not covered in current workshop offerings, can I suggest that it be included in future programs? Yes. At the end of each workshop day, we ask participants to fill out an evaluation where there is an opportunity to write in suggestions on the back of the form.  You could also contact our office at 612-301-4821 or send a request to .
