The accurate and reliable detection of feigned mental illness is a critical skill for mental health professionals. A premier measure for such detection is the Structured Interview of Reported Symptoms, Second Edition (SIRS-2). This comprehensive workshop provides step-by-step instructions and demonstrations regarding the administration of the SIRS-2, tips for the measure’s scoring, and guidelines for problematic responses. Intended for practitioners at all levels, including both experienced professionals and trainees as well as those who have used the SIRS-2 in the past without official training, this On Demand certified workshop is presented by the instrument’s developer and is eligible for 6.5 hours of valuable Continuing Education Credit.
The development of the SIRS-2 will be discussed, unlikely and amplified feigning detection strategies will be reviewed, a summary of the peer-reviewed research on the SIRS-2 will be presented, and guidance will be put forth on how to write SIRS-2 reports. The information presented is key for professionals presenting SIRS-2 results within a forensic or legal context, such as expert testimony.
More cost-effective and time-efficient than attending an in-person workshop but covering the same content, this innovative training is the first-of-its-kind.
