Personality tests have become more and more important in the decision making models within Forensic Mental Health. So much so, courts often expect, and even order, personality assessments in many cases before rendering a finding or decision. Unfortunately, these tests are often misunderstood, misinterpreted, and misrepresented.
 
The purpose of this workshop is to demystify personality testing and explain how they can be used to accurately augment your current forensic evaluations. 
 
At the end of this workshop attendees will have a thorough understanding of the following Learning Objectives:
 
1. What is personality testing and what are the most popular tests used today.
2. The difference between objective and subjective personality tests.
3. How  personality tests are used in forensic settings.
4. Basic understanding of how to administer, score, and interpret the MMPI.
5. Basic understanding of how to administer, score, and interpret the PAI.
6. Strengths and Limitations of personality testing, with particular emphasis on     the MMPI and PAI.
