Specifically, the presentation will provide: 1) use of supplemental profile validity indicators in the interpretation of profile validity, 2) identifying and interpreting distorted profiles; and 3) other supplemental indicators and constellations addressing targeted clinical issues such as suicidality, dangerousness, substance abuse, and treatment decision-making.

Goals and Objectives:

  1. Understand scoring and configural interpretation of supplemental profiles validity indicators in the interpretation of profile validity.
  2. Apply approaches to the identification and interpretation of distorted profiles.
  3. Understand scoring and interpretation of supplemental indicators addressing targeted clinical issues.
