MMPI, MMPI-2, and MMPI-A in Court by Kenneth S. Pope
Book DescriptionThe 3rd Edition of "The MMPI, MMPI-2, and MMPI-A in Court: A Practical Guide for Expert Witnesses and Attorneys" is an updated and expanded edition of the best-selling "Pope-Butcher-Seelen" volume. Like the previous edition, this book is written in an engaging and accessible style. Reviewing the three versions of the MMPI, the empirical research identifying the MMPI's effectiveness and limitations in different kinds of civil and criminal forensic assessments and with different populations, and the courts' recognition and restriction of MMPI-based testimony, it provides comprehensive guidance to both novice and experienced professionals. The book covers the practical steps of trial preparation and courtroom work, such as choosing appropriate assessment measures, crafting an effective subpoena duces tecum, preparing for depositions, handling Daubert challenges, and communicating with the jury. It prepares expert witnesses and attorneys to address complex issues regarding validity, reliability, sensitivity, specificity, base rates, and malingering, and to avoid common psychometric, logical, and practical pitfalls. The 26 appendices gather under one cover the key resources that expert witnesses and attorneys can rely on during preparation and take with them to depositions and trial.
