This live workshop on Assessment of Malingering is presented by Barry Rosenfeld, PhD.
 
This workshop reviews the tests and techniques currently available for assessing malingering of cognitive impairment and psychiatric disturbance. Among the tests reviewed in this workshop are the measures such as the Test of Memory Malingering (TOMM), Validity Indicator Profile (VIP), MMPI-2, Structured Interview of Reported Symptoms (SIRS) and the Miller Forensic Assessment of Symptoms Test (M-FAST). In addition to discussing the use and interpretation of the individual test, this workshop addresses the integration of multiple instruments into an assessment battery and decision-making in equivocal cases or when test data appear contradictory. Finally, the use and misuse of malingering tests with linguistic and culturally diverse evaluatees are discussed.
