Mental health experts routinely rely upon psychological testing when formulating psycholegal opinions. In this 1-hour live webinar, Dr. Maureen L. Reardon will review the role of personality testing in the forensic context and its implications for practicing attorneys. Specifically, this seminar offers practical guidance on the utility of objective tests of psychopathology from a mental health perspective, with updates on the MMPI-3, and attempt to address concerns attorneys have with those measures. This program is sponsored by NC Indigent Defense Services.
