This book presents an advanced examination of psychological testing and usage in the child custody arena. It addresses test selection issues, provides insightful discussions of how to confront confirmatory biases and avoid the distortion of test findings, and takes an in-depth look at the MMPI-2 and Rorschach tests. Psychological Testing in Child Custody Evaluations concludes with a point-counterpoint discussion of the strengths and weaknesses of the Ackerman-Schoendorf Scales for Parent Evaluation of Custody (ASPECT) between creator Marc J. Ackerman and Mary Connell, President of the American Academy of Forensic Psychology.
