The MMPI-2 Structural Summary provides a convenient system for collecting related information in new ways and facilitates comparisons of relationships between MMPI-2 scales to derive a more complete picture of the individual. This easy-to-use 8-page form assists the clinician in three important ways:
The clinician enters scored scales and indices from a completed MMPI-2 administration into the appropriate blanks provided under the six major sections:
Each of the six major sections contains between two and 11 subsections. The categories selected for the MMPI-2 Structural Summary are those that surface repeatedly in clinical discussions across all the mental health professions. This is a structural summary; most of its categories reflect known dimensions of variation within the total MMPI-2 item pool. Categories are composed of scales with relatively high intercorrelations and high similarity of item content. By contrast, relations between scales and indices in different categories generally reflect lower correlations and more dissimilar item content.
The MMPI-2 Structural Summary Interpretive Manual provides an overview of the development and validation of the Structural Summary, as well as practical information on its use in clinical settings. A number of case studies are presented to demonstrate the clinical utility of this new form. The manual also discusses the relevance of a number of newly developed scales within each of the major categories.
