Description

The 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.
