Forensic Psychological Testing Services

Dr. Joseph utilizes a number of psychological tests when appropriate to the case dynamics. These include the following:

MMPI-2 (Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory-2)
One of the most widely used assessments in forensic settings. Addresses symptom areas, defensiveness, and malingering. Frequently used in Personal Injury Lawsuits, Pre-Trial Evaluations, Personal Injury Neurological Evaluations and Child Custody Disputes.

MCMI-III (Millon Clinical Multiaxial Inventory-III)
In addition to its use in the clinical arena, the MCMi-III is also used in forensic settings. It identifies the deeper and pervasive personality characteristics underlying a subject’s overt symptoms, and presentation.

HPC-R (Hare Psychopathy Checklist-Revised)
Utilized in forensic settings to determine if a diagnosis of psychopathy is present based on the individual’s functioning over time and provides empirical support for expert testimony.

TOMM (Test of Memory Malingering)
Determines whether the person has a true memory impairment or not. Often used in Personal Injury Lawsuits, Civil Trial and Worker’s Compensation Evaluations.

VIP (Validity Indicator Profile)
This is a validity indicator for concurrently administered psychological tests. It is used to help identify when an examinee may be feigning symptoms or overemphasizing them. It is frequently used in Civil Trials, Medical Insurance Examinations, Worker’s Compensation Evaluations, and Social Security Disability Reviews.
