This intermediate-level two-day workshop focuses on assessments of police and public safety candidates and incumbents. It is designed for individuals familiar with the MMPI-2-RF, for example, those who have completed the "Introduction to the MMPI-2-RF" workshop on Tuesday, April 22.

Use of the MMPI-2-RF in these assessments will be illustrated with a series of case studies.
