With expanded scoring and classification, the SIRS-2 was developed to assess deliberate distortions in the self-report of symptoms. Each scale produces useful information on how a particular client may distort or fabricate his or her symptoms. The primary focus of the SIRS-2 is on the evaluation of feigning and the manner in which it is likely to occur—for example, exaggeration of symptom severity versus fabrication of symptomatology.
