This On Demand training provides an overview of the issues in evaluating malingering in forensic assessments. The training explores the inherent problems in reaching the conclusion that examinees are malingering a presentation, how to address those problems, and how to gain confidence in making assertions that are supportable. In addition, the training explores the constructs of malingering and describes how classification tests might most effectively be used to capture those constructs. A number of effective strategies for the assessment of feigned cognitive impairment will also be identified. As an example of an effective, valid, and reliable assessment of feigned cognitive impairment, the training thoroughly reviews the development, validation, and interpretation of the Validity Indicator Profile (VIP), a test that has been used worldwide for the past 20 years.
Officially authorized by the VIP’s publisher and presented by the author, this workshop is eligible for 7 hours of valuable Continuing Education Credit. Attendees should have access to the VIP Manual before starting this training. The VIP Manual is purchasable through the instrument’s publisher, Pearson.
