Overview

This case book provides an overview of two increasingly related aspects of contemporary applied psychology: the exploration of computer-based psychological assessment strategies across cultures and the cross-cultural generalization of psychological constructs and procedures, particularly psychological assessment. In particular, this book is devoted to exploring the cultural generalizability in a Chinese context of the Minnesota Multiphasic Inventory-2 (MMPI-2) and the use of the Minnesota Report for the MMPI-2, the most widely used computer-based MMPI-2 interpretive system. Clinical case examples from Hong Kong highlight the cultural convergences and divergences that occur when using the Chinese version of the MMPI-2 versus the Minnesota Report.
