Abstract:

In this study, the Miller Forensic Assessment of Symptoms Test (M-FAST), Structured Inventory of Malingered Symptomatology (SIMS), Structured Interview of Reported Symptoms (SIRS), and Personality Assessment Inventory (PAI) were examined for detecting malingering in corrections. The study’s main goals were to investigate the utility of the SIMS and M-FAST as malingering screening devices in a sample of 100 male and female inmates and add to the relatively small literature base on these measures. Results provide mixed support for the SIMS and M-FAST as screening measures and some evidence that these tools are better predictors of possible feigning than the PAI.
