Course Description:

This workshop presents a new multi-dimensional screening test, the Minnesota Behavioral Health Screen (MBHS), based on the hierarchical-dimensional model operationalized by the MMPI-2-RF. Nine core psychopathology constructs (e.g., demoralization, anhedonia, anxiety, etc.) are screened with a 27-item questionnaire that requires less than 3 minutes to complete for most patients. This workshop will include (1) a brief presentation of the paradigm shift in theoretical psychopathology, moving away from categorical diagnostic models in favor of hierarchical-dimensional models; (2) a brief presentation of the specific hierarchical structure of the MMPI-2-RF; (3) the process of selecting nine major distinctive core constructs from the MMPI-2-RF model; (4) a detailed presentation of what each of the nine scales of the MBHS are measuring; (5) some case examples. Participants will be provided beta versions of the MBHS that can be utilized (cautiously, for hypothesis-generation) in their current practices.


Learning objectives:

1. Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to clearly describe the differences between the traditional dichotomous-categorical models of psychopathology, such as those embodied by the DSM-5 and ICD-10, and emerging hierarchical-dimensional representations, with regard to how psychopathology is conceptualized;


2. Participants will be able to clearly describe the flaws of the traditional paradigm, particularly the problems associated with high levels of heterogeneity within categories, and the problems associated with the extensive overlap in symptomatology across categories;

3. Finally, participants will be able to clearly articulate and demonstrate understanding of the nine major distinctive core constructs targeted by the Minnesota Behavioral Health Screen, and to describe the relevance of these in assessment and treatment planning
