Course Description

This full-day workshop introduces the MMPI-3, the most up-to-date, newly-normed version of the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory (MMPI). The test co-author, Yossef Ben-Porath, will describe the rationale for and methods used to develop the MMPI-3. Ben-Porath will also cover the new English- and Spanish-language norms and the 52 MMPI-3 scales. In addition, attendees will learn about documentation available to help direct test users, interpretive guidelines, and case illustrations. The workshop will review how the MMPI-3 builds on the legacy and strengths of the MMPI instruments. It will cover the ways the MMPI-3 is an empirically validated, psychometrically sound measure of psychopathology and personality.
