Efficacy of Trial 1 of the Test of Memory Malingering (TOMM) as a Screening Measure in a Forensic Sample

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



Abstract:

Prior research has supported the clinical utility of Trial 1 of the Test of Memory Malingering (TOMM) as a screening measure of exaggerated or feigned impairment. However, no research exists on the efficacy of Trial 1 in a forensic sample. This study compares the efficacy of Trial 1 and Trial 2 of the TOMM in differentiating individuals with genuine impairments in a forensic facility from individuals suspected of malingering and from those asked to malinger. In this sample, Trial 1 was shown to be as effective as Trial 2 in this classification. Implications for forensic assessment are discussed.
