Course Description

This advanced webinar focuses on using the MMPI-2-RF Police Candidate Interpretive Report (PCIR) in combination with measures of normal personality, collateral/background information, and clinical interview findings to determine a candidate’s psychological suitability for police work. Additional topics will include legal considerations and best practices. Use of the PCIR in these assessments will be illustrated by the application of a comprehensive model that integrates diverse findings from actual case materials. This webinar is designed for individuals familiar with the MMPI-2-RF – for example, those who have attended the MMPI-2-RF: Basic Overview webinar or the MMPI-2-RF: Police and Law Enforcement webinar. CE credits are offered for attending the live webinar session.

Course Objectives

1. Apply a model (Spilberg & Corey, 2017) for integrating data from multiple data sources, including information from written tests, personal history, and clinical interview when conducting preemployment evaluations of police officer candidates.
2. Use PCIR item-level information to assess for the impact of intentional deception on underreporting.
3. Extract comparison group findings and job-relevant correlates from the PCIR to make evidence-based suitability determinations and prepare written reports.
