A practical and vital guide for using the MMPI-2-RF in both preemployment and fitness-for-duty evaluations for four public safety positions: law enforcement officer, corrections officer, emergency communications dispatcher, and firefighter/paramedic
This comprehensive guide is intended to assist clinicians in integrating MMPI-2-RF findings with other assessment information routinely used in these evaluations, including findings from other tests, personal history, and clinical interviews. The authors provide detailed strategies for combining these data with findings from the Police Candidate Interpretive Report, Score Report, and Clinical Settings Interpretive Report.
The book includes a concise primer on the MMPI-2-RF, common procedural and legal requirements for these evaluations, and contextual factors affecting these evaluations. Multiple case illustrations demonstrate the use of the integrative models in preemployment and fitness-for-duty evaluations.
