Three Psychologists, One Profile

Three Psychologists, One Profile: An Exercise in Building MMPI-2 Interpretations

This DVD presents an educational workshop in which three nationally known experts build MMPI-2 interpretations from the ground up, having no information about the case beyond the test scores and basic demographics. Drs. Roger L. Greene, David S. Nichols, and Alex B. Caldwell each provide an independent 40 minute showcase of how they think their way through a blind interpretation of a forensic MMPI-2 profile. Following the experts’ interpretations, the treating psychologist, Dr. David Glassmire, presents details of the actual clinical case, thus providing an immediate point of resolution of the experts’ pre dictions. Produced by Drs. David Brokaw and Holli Eaton, Azusa Pacific University.


This two DVD set contains a three-hour version providing the full content of the workshop, including a final question-and-answer period. In addition it contains a one-hour condensed version of the workshop, suitable for graduate academic instruction if more time is not available. The reports used by the three experts in their interpretations are also included on the DVD: the MMPI-2 Extended Score Report, the MMPI-2 Adult Interpretive System Version 3, Caldwell Report’s MMPI-2 Narrative Report, and David Nichols Revised Structural Summary of the MMPI-2. They can be downloaded for personal study or for classroom handouts.


This 3-hour workshop is designed to help you:

  1. Analyze the validity of a MMPI-2 profile.
  2. Utilize the MMPI-2 to make a psychiatric diagnosis.
  3. Describe the sequence of steps involved in preparing a MMPI-2 interpretation.

DVD Twenty Three Codetypes...

Twenty Three MMPI–2 Codetypes as Survival–Oriented Patterns of Adaptation
