1. Green, Debbie., Belfi, Brian. and Rosenfeld, Barry. "Impact of Intelligence and Severity of Psychiatric Symptoms on Cognitive Malingering Measures" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Psychology - Law Society, Westin Bayshore Hotel, Vancouver, BC, Canada, <Not Available>. 2020-02-18 <>
Publication Type: Symposium Paper
Abstract: Despite the need for assessment of malingered cognitive impairments in forensic psychiatric evaluations, few researchers have investigated the accuracy of these measures outside of civil psycholegal contexts. A critical empirical issue is whether genuine psychiatric patients risk misclassification as malingerers due to severity of symptoms or low intelligence. In the current study, a sample of 93 genuinely responding forensic psychiatric patients completed the BPRS-E, WASI, TOMM, VIP-V, FIT, and DCT. Results indicate that performance on the cognitive malingering measures was not associated with severity of psychiatric symptoms. However, level of intelligence significantly impacted scores and classification accuracy.
