Lab research receives AACN Award

I’m thrilled to have my meta-analysis of the MMPI-2-Restructured Form (MMPI-2-RF) recognized as runner-up for the best manuscript of the year by the American Academy of Clinical Neuropsychology (AACN) in their 2016 student research competition. The article was published last year in the academy’s flagship journal.

Ingram, P.B., & Ternes, M. (2016). The detection of content-based invalid responding: A meta-analysis of the MMPI-2-Restructured Form’s (MMPI-2-RF) over-reporting scales. The Clinical Neuropsychology, 30, 473-496. doi: 10.1080/13854046.2016.1187769

This paper was not only the first meta-analysis of the MMPI-2-RF validity scales but also provided an analysis of some important moderators deferentially impacting the detection of feigning across the over-reporting scales. Findings highlight the importance of considering context, client, and evaluation-specific information in making clinical interpretations. There are lots of exciting ways I will be building on this moving forward; I’ll be examining interactions between moderators, further study on specific clinical presentations like PTSD and TBI, and more.
