Personality Assessment: Ethics and Instruments
Workshop reviews clinical personality assessment practices for an INTERMEDIATE to ADVANCED audience by observing some of the limitations of the MMPI-2 which has become a dated instrument, despite the 1989 restandardization, and the viability of the MMPI relative to other contemporary objective measures, including the PAI and the MCMI-III. Assessment practices also may include projective techniques, which have been increasingly criticized for limited reliability and validity. Evidence for the viability of projective techniques and professional and ethical implications of instrument selection will be provided.
