This workshop on Using the MMPI-A-RF in Juvenile Forensic Psychological Evaluations is presented by Dr. Martin Sellbom. This introductory level workshop introduces the 241-item version of the MMPI-A, the MMPI-A Restructured Form (MMPI-2-RF) to psychologists working in juvenile forensic settings. The rationale for and methods used to develop the MMPI-A-RF, the various materials available to score and interpret the test, psychometric functioning of its scales, and interpretive recommendations will be covered. Moreover, a substantial portion of time will be devoted to applications of the MMPI-A-RF in Juvenile Court evaluations. Furthermore, some topics of particular importance in forensic evaluations (e.g., malingering) from a personality assessment perspective will be discussed in detail. The workshop will also emphasize discussion on how to defend MMPI-A-RF opinions in court for general purposes of use, with an emphasis on Daubert and Frye challenges. Finally, attendees will have an opportunity to practice the recommended strategy for MMPI-A-RF interpretation with case examples.
