Based on thousands of cases collected from forensic settings, the MMPI-2 Reports for Forensic Settings help provide a strong empirical foundation for clinicians' expert opinions and increase their confidence in preparing testimony. The reports build on the MMPI-2 test's reputation as the most widely used assessment in forensic situations.

Users & Applications

This report series is customized for six forensic settings: Child Custody, Personal Injury, Personal Injury (Neurological), Pre-trial Criminal, General Corrections, Competency/Commitment. Each of the reports provides an objective narrative assessment of a client's responses and compares the profile data to data from setting-specific research samples.

Features & Benefits

  • Developed by MMPI-2 expert James N. Butcher, PhD, the reports address the questions most frequently asked by referral sources.
  • Each report includes setting-specific text and profile frequencies to help ensure relevant, defensible testimony.
  • Expanded interpretations of test validity address defensiveness and malingering.
  • A comparison of the client's profile to those of people in similar situations allows additional insight into test results.
  • DSM-related diagnostic possibilities are suggested to help support psychological treatment recommendations.
