Assignment 1: Discussion Question: Objective vs Projective
Recall our consultant, Keith, from Module 1. Keith has been asked to conduct a psychological evaluation on an adolescent female. Her teachers and parents are concerned that her grades have been dropping and she has been acting out.
Keith is short on time and needs to complete his assessment quickly. He likes using the MMPI-A and decides to send a protocol home for the girl to complete. Once she returns it, he’ll score it and determine if the girl’s personality is somehow influencing her grades and behavior changes.
