Supplementing Evaluations in a Forensic Psychiatric Setting with Cognitive Malingering Measures

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Although forensic psychiatric examinees are likely to feign cognitive deficits and psychopathology, little research has investigated the accuracy of cognitive malingering measures in psychiatric contexts. Also absent is an understanding of the potential incremental utility of cognitive malingering measures over established measures of malingered psychopathology. Using a known-groups design, 118 forensic patients were administered the SIRS, TOMM, VIP-V, FIT, and DCT. The TOMM, FIT, and DCT attained high specificity rates but their sensitivity rates were notably lower than demonstrated by the SIRS. However, both the FIT and DCT improved classification accuracy over that attained using only the SIRS.
