- Summarize the original impetus and rationale for the development of the Symptom Validity Scale (previously Fake Bad Scale, FBS) and discuss early questions regarding its use in detecting symptom over-reporting.
- Discuss how the FBS became one of the most relied upon symptom validity scales in contemporary neuropsychology and the substantial empirical foundation that supports its use.
- Identify current recommended approaches for using the FBS and other MMPI-2-RF validity scales to assess for over-reporting in neuropsychological evaluations.
