Josie Tyrer is our selectee for this month and wanted to lead a discussion on malingering. She has picked an outstanding article by Glenn Larrabee, who is well-known in this particular literature (see attached). All attendees should plan on reviewing this article. In addition, there are two additional suggested readings that complement Josie's selection nicely:
Conroy & Kwartner (2006). Malingering. Applied Psychology in Criminal Justice, 2, 29-51.
Heilbronner, Sweet, Morgan, Larrabee, Millis (2006). AACN position statement on NP assessment of effort, response bias, and malingering. The Clinical Neuropsychologist, 23, 1093-1129.
The first article discusses malingering in a forensic-psychiatric context, with several important legal cases cited. The second is the most recent position paper on cognitive symptom validity/effort assessment in neuropsychological evaluation, put together by the American Academy of Clinical Neuropsychology. Again, these two articles are suggestions. If you would like to review different article(s) for the meeting you are welcome to do so. If you need help selecting an article, just let me know and I'm happy to help.
As always, please email me and let me know if you're coming. We can usually accommodate 7-8 people. Josie and I hope you can make it - please come out and support her. As chair I extend a special welcome to students who have not yet attended a club meeting. We always thoroughly enjoy ourselves and it's a way to keep up on some interesting literature. It's also great experience for the selectee to learn how to professionally present research and lead/manage a group discussion. I am still looking for folks to fill selectee spots for September, October, and November, just let me know if you're interested!
See you June 24th!
