Wrobel, Nancy Howells; Lachar, David
Psychological Assessment, v7 n2 p140-47 Jun 1995
Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventories (MMPIs) were administered to an urban mixed-race sample of 218 adolescent psychiatric patients. Wiggins scale elevations for African Americans and whites were compared, and the validity of the scales was assessed through comparison with parent observations. Implications for the MMPI-Adolescent content scales are discussed. (SLD)
