Course Description

This intermediate-level workshop focuses on use of the MMPI-2-RF in evaluations conducted in public safety settings both pre- and post-hire. It is designed for individuals familiar with the MMPI-2-RF. Topics covered include legal considerations, best practices, and the use of the MMPI-2-RF Police Candidate Interpretive Report (PCIR) in conducting preemployment evaluations and legal considerations, best practices, and the use of the MMPI-2-RF in Fitness-for-Duty Evaluations. Public safety positions considered include police and corrections officers, firefighters, and dispatchers. Use of the MMPI-2-RF in these assessments will be illustrated with case studies demonstrating integration of MMPI-2-RF findings with other sources, including (as applicable) background investigation, mental health records, clinical interview, and other psychological tests.
