Psychologists and other expert witnesses who testify about the MMPI must communicate clearly how the instrument works, why it works, and what it means in the case at hand. They will likely face a carefully crafted cross-examination on such issues as validity, reliability, population norms, nature of t distributions, retrospective and prospective accuracy, sensitivity and specificity, item correlations, malingering and other forms of faking, common problems with computer scoring and interpretation, and recent research affecting interpretations. Attorneys inviting or encountering expert testimony must be prepared to challenge (or anticipate a challenge to) the premises, inferences, databases, decision rules, and other aspects of expert testimony regarding the MMPI. This book provides the information needed to successfully prepare for trials and participate in court testimony involving the MMPI. This edition incorporates research, legislation, and case law that have emerged since the 1st edition was published in 1993 as well as recent developments, such as the test publisher"s decision to no longer make the original MMPI available. In addition to the extensive appendixes of the 1st edition, a variety of new appendixes have been added. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2004 APA, all rights reserved)

"Persons of Hispanic origin are the largest ethnic minority group in the United States. Practitioners involved in personality assessment will undoubtedly work with Hispanic clients who may be grappling with low English proficiency and other challenges of acculturation to U.S. society. Written by frontline experts in the use of the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory (MMPI), Assessing Hispanic Clients Using the MMPI-2 and MMPI-A discusses the utility of psychological tests based on U.S. norms in making clinical decisions for clients from different cultural backgrounds. The MMPI instruments are the most extensively researched and widely used personality instruments with Spanish-speaking clients. The authors provide readers a critical sociocultural context in the use of the MMPI-2 and MMPI-A in the clinical assessment of Hispanic clients in the United States and abroad. Psychologists and other practitioners are offered a practical guide for clinical interpretation of test results, with advice on addressing biases, challenges to protocol validity, and other potential barriers to the culturally appropriate and ethical use and interpretation of the tests. Butcher, Cabiya, Lucio, and Garrido provide a comprehensive review of the research literature, past and contemporary, on the use of the MMPIs with Spanish-speaking populations in the United States and internationally. The authors describe the development and validation of Spanish-language versions of the MMPI-2 and MMPI-A, offering scenarios from Mexico, Cuba, and other Spanish-speaking countries. A set of appendixes includes T score conversion tables for the Mexican MMPI versions and a listing of Spanish language translations."--Jacket
