Research Updates

Just a quick update of some goings on in the lab since the summer. This is just a snapshot of some of the projects in the works at different stages.

Personality Assessment
– Another meta-analytic evaluation of the MMPI-2-RF has completed data collection and analysis is beginning this week.
-IRB submission is beginning within a neuropsych clinic for active duty military. This project will examine the discriminant capacity of MMPI-2-RF validity scales. There is no timeline for this project currently.
-IRB submission is being finalized for one Veteran sample within an outpatient posttraumatic stress disorder clinic to examine the role of clinical personality measures in the classification of PTSD. This clinic utilized the PAI and MCMI. It is anticipated that analysis will be able to begin within 1-2 months.
-Analysis of the nationally-based veteran sample is ongoing. A first manuscript from this database is being prepared currently. Some preliminary data for this project was presented at the 2017 MMPI-2-RF/MMPI-2/MMPI-A-Rf/MMPI-A conference.
-IRB submission is being prepared for a malingering study of Veterans as it relates to comorbid PTSD and mTBI. This project is projected to begin data collection in Spring 2018.
Treatment Seeking and Initiation/Engagment
-IRB has approved a data collection project on stigma of mental health and how it relates to health factors. Data collection is beginning now in conjunction with a second University.
– A manuscript examining the role of masculine identity in treatment seeking is being prepared and is anticipated for submission within 1-2 months. This is based on the poster I presented with Dr. Brian Cole at 2017’s APA.
