Use of the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory-2 With Persons Diagnosed With Multiple Sclerosis

VIEWS: 8 PAGES: 7

Counselors who assess persons with multiple sclerosis (MS) using the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory-2 (MMPI-2; T. N. Butcher, W. G. Dahlstrom, J. R. Graham, A. Tellegen, & B. Kaemmer, 1989) may find scale elevations on Scales 1, 2, 3, and 8. These elevations may be due, at least in part, to specific questions on the MMPI-2 that assess physiological or neurological symptoms that are common in MS. Researchers have identified specific questions that have overlap between psychological and physiological symptoms and created neurocorrections that can be used, along with a thorough clinical interview, to more accurately assess persons with MS.
