With the introduction of managed care to mental health treatment, patients increasingly are being seen in outpatient settings. Although the MMPI-2 and its predecessor, the MMPI have long been used for outpatient assessment, the bulk of research on the test has been done at inpatient psychiatric hospitals. This volume provides the first extensive set of correlates for the MMPI-2 in outpatient settings, showing the relationship of MMPI-2 scores to clinically relevant behavior.
Reporting the results of a large-scale research project on the use of the MMPI-2 in community mental health centers, this study presents clinically useful information concerning the interpretation of MMPI-2 scores and code types. Because the research found that the correlates in outpatient mental health settings are essentially the same as those in other settings, this book will be a standard reference for clinicians who use the MMPI-2, regardless of where they work.
