The utility of the MMPI-2-RF validity scales (F-r and Fp-r) in identifying criminal defendants who feign psychopathology on the SIRS

Abstract:

The present study examines the ability of the MMPI-2-Restructured Form validity scales to identify criminal defendants who feign psychopathology on the SIRS. A sample of 125 criminal defendants was analyzed in a known groups design using the SIRS as the criterion and the MMPI-RF F-r and Fp-r validity scales as predictors. Results suggested the F-r and Fp-r scales significantly predict group membership, with both scales adding to the predictive utility of the other. Classification accuracy statistics substantiated the recommended cut scores in the MMPI-2-RF manual (Ben-Porath & Tellegen, 2008) (F-r > 120T; Fp-r > 100) in this forensic setting.
