Dr. Corey has authored or coauthored more than 30 peer-reviewed research manuscripts, book chapters, and books, including Assessing Police and Other Public Safety Personnel Using the MMPI-2-RF (Corey & Ben-Porath, 2018; University of Minnesota Press), Evaluations of Police Suitability and Fitness for Duty (Corey & Zelig, 2020; Oxford University Press), and the California Peace Officer Psychological Screening Manual (Spilberg & Corey, 2020; California Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training). With Dr. Yossef Ben-Porath, he is the co-author of the MMPI-3 Police Candidate Interpretive Report (PCIR) and the MMPI-2-RF PCIR, as well as the recent article in Professional Psychology: Research and Practice, “Practical Guidance on the Use of the MMPI Instruments in Remote Psychological Testing” (Corey & Ben-Porath, Vol. 51, No. 3, 199-204).

Dr. David McCord is a Professor of Clinical Psychology, Western Carolina University. He received the B.A. in Psychology from Duke University in 1984, M.A. in Clinical Psychology from Western Carolina University in 1979, and Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from The University of Alabama in 1984, where he studied with Dr. Ray Fowler. He completed his pre-doctoral internship year in the School of Medicine, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1984, mentored by Dr. Charles S. Newmark. His publications and professional presentations focus generally on personality assessment and personality theory, with primary focus on the MMPI-2-RF. He has recently published a book in the APA Psychological Assessment Series, Assessment Using the MMPI-2-RF. He serves on the editorial boards of Psychological Assessment and the Journal of Personality Assessment and is a frequent ad hoc reviewer for other journals. Dr. McCord is currently the President of Section IX (Assessment) of APA Division 12.

Overview: In this 1-hour webinar the presenters will describe key principles and best practices to follow when shifting psychological assessment to remote administration modalities. A clear, specific example will be demonstrated, using the MMPI-2-RF administered under actively monitored testing conditions. This example, will serve, by extension, as a model for conducting other forms of psychological assessments, beyond self-report.

 

Learning Objectives:

  1. Describe six basic principles constituting best practices when conducting psychological assessment with physical distancing constraints
  2. Explain the importance of proctoring remote test administrations via teleconference.
  3. Describe no fewer than three critical procedures for proctoring remote test administration of psychological tests
  4. Use Q-global to remotely administer the MMPI-2-RF (and other self-report instruments)
  5. Extend the approach demonstrated here with the MMPI-2-RF to apply to a broader range of assessment techniques
