Widely regarded as the standard reference in the field, this book provides essential tools for understanding and assessing malingering and other response styles in forensic and clinical contexts. An integrating theme is the systematic application of detection strategies as conceptually grounded, empirically validated methods that bridge different measures and populations. Special topics include considerations in working with children and youth. From leading practitioners and researchers, the volume reviews the scientific knowledge base and offers best-practice guidelines for maximizing the accuracy of psychological and psychiatric evaluations.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This is the foremost text on malingering. I have used it in the classroom and in practice for over 10 years. Each subsequent edition is updated with the latest research by noted authors in the field."--Richard P. Conti, PhD, Department of Psychology, College of Saint Elizabeth, Morristown, New Jersey

"Clearly written by a stellar cast of contributors, the volume is packed with diagnostic clues to a broad range of feigned conditions and guidelines for conducting definitive research. I recommend this extraordinarily useful book as a constant companion for anyone involved in practicing or studying the assessment of impression management."--Irving B. Weiner, PhD, ABPP, University of South Florida

"Rogers has done it again. Clinical Assessment of Malingering and Deception, Third Edition, will serve as the authoritative work on response style for years to come. The assessment of feigning is the cornerstone of any forensic mental health evaluation. This book is a 'must' for all forensic mental health professionals, and doubtless will be frequently consulted for the most up-to-date information on research and practice."--Alan M. Goldstein, PhD, ABPP, ABFP, Professor Emeritus, John Jay College of Criminal Justice, City University of New York

"Coverage encompasses the fabrication of symptoms by civil litigants, feigned psychosis on the part of criminal defendants, the minimizing of negative personality characteristics by law enforcement applicants, and many other topics. The volume emphasizes a scientific approach to the evaluation of malingering and deception. This is an essential resource for psychologists and other practitioners who work in forensic settings. General clinicians, particularly those involved in interviewing and assessment, also will find it a very useful reference."--Glenn J. Larrabee, PhD, ABPP-CN, independent practice, Sarasota, Florida

"Malingering and deception represent complicated but critical issues for clinical assessors. Edited by one of the leading scholars in the clinical assessment of deception, this volume provides comprehensive coverage of issues and instruments. It should be consulted regularly for guidance in this very difficult but important area of personality assessment."--Christopher J. Hopwood, PhD, Department of Psychology, Michigan State University
