Description:

In clear, accessible language, this book introduces readers to the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory-2 (MMPI2), the most widely researched and broadly used personality assessment instrument. James N. Butcher, one of the authors of the MMPI2, explains how the instrument was developed to describe and predict behavior in a range of applied settings. Guidance is provided for administering and interpreting the results, with case studies to illustrate major concepts. Several updates have been made since the previous edition of this popular book, including new interpretive information on the MMPI2, new areas for application of the MMPI2, and-most importantly-a new chapter on the MMPI2 Restructured Form (MMPI2RF), a separate short instrument that beginners may confuse with the MMPI2. This user-friendly but comprehensive primer is essential reading for nonpsychologist professionals who need a quick overview of the test, as well as for students of clinical and personality assessment who seek a reliable introductory text.
