This webinar will feature a live Q&A by author Leslie C. Morey, PhD. Initially recorded in 2021 for a workshop from the Society for Personality Assessment (SPA), this session will involve an advanced discussion of the clinical use of the Personality Assessment Inventory (PAI). This presentation will highlight recent developments in PAI research and their implications for profile interpretation. A particular focus will involve profile validity with discussion of recently developed indices and functions designed to address defensiveness or malingering. Specifically, the presentation will provide: 1) understanding of the use of supplemental profile validity indicators in the interpretation of profile validity; 2) information on identifying and interpreting distorted profiles; and 3) information on other supplemental indicators and constellations addressing targeted clinical issues such as suicidality, dangerousness, substance abuse, and treatment decision making. Bring your questions for PAI author Dr. Morey!
Learning Objectives: By the end of this session, participants will be able to:
Describe scoring and configural interpretation of supplemental profiles and validity indicators in the interpretation of profile validity.
Apply approaches to the identification and interpretation of distorted profiles.
Assess scoring and interpretation of supplemental indicators related to targeted clinical issues.
