Tuesday, June 18, 2019 -
8:30am to 4:30pm

This in-person workshop on Using the MMPI-2-RF in Public Safety Personnel Evaluations is presented by Dr. Martin Sellbom. This workshop will introduce the 338-item version of the MMPI-2, the MMPI-2 Restructured Form (MMPI-2-RF) to psychologists working with public safety personnel. The rationale for and methods used to develop the MMPI-2-RF, the various materials available to score and interpret the test, and interpretive recommendations will be covered. Moreover, a substantial portion of time will be devoted to applications of the MMPI-2-RF in various public safety evaluations, including for pre-employment screening and fitness for duty evaluation purposes.

A recommended screening strategy will be covered with a discussion of empirically validated evaluation dimensions (based on California POST guidelines) for screening purposes. A variety of workplace concerns will be discussed and empirical support for various recommendations will be reviewed. Finally, attendees will have an opportunity to practice the recommended strategy for MMPI-2-RF interpretation with case examples. This workshop has been approved by the California Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST) for 7 CPE credits.
