Yet, it is primarily used to assist in the diagnosis and assessment of major psychological disorders (Brokaw, 2018). Still, extensive research detailing the tools validity and effectiveness on parental behavior in relation to their children is one reason for this wide acceptance of the MMPI-2 in parent capacity and custody evaluations (Butcher, Hass, & Greene,2014). Published in August of 1989, the MMPI-2 represents the 1strevision of the MMPI since its original publication in 1943. Butcher and Owen (1978) have estimated that 87% of all research conducted in the field of personality has been centered on the MMPI, in addition to estimating that more than 10,000 articles and books have documented its utility (as cited in Butcher,Dahlstrom, Graham, Tellegen, & Kaemmer, 1942; Butcher, Hass, & Greene, 2014).

Fittingly, it has been translated into more than 50 languages and numerous studies have supported its use in other cultures (Kilmer & Demakis, 2008). The basic profile of the standardized questionnaire consists of 567 self-descriptive statements and it’s made up of nine validity scales and ten traditional clinical scales.The research scales (Brokaw, 2018). The MMPI-2 also consists of potential error rate scales that offer information for evaluating the validity of each MMPI-2 profile (Munley, 19991). According to Demakis and Kilmer (2008), the MMPI-2’s evaluations of test-taking approach and validity lend credence to interpretations generated by the test in various situations, especially in forensic situations such as “gatekeeping evaluations” (p. 505)
