This full-day workshop introduces the MMPI-3, the most up-to-date, newly-normed version of the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory (MMPI). 

The test co-author, Yossef Ben-Porath, will describe the rationale for and methods used to develop the MMPI-3. Ben-Porath will also cover the new English- and Spanish-language norms and the 52 MMPI-3 scales. In addition, attendees will learn about documentation available to help direct test users, interpretive guidelines, and case illustrations.
