Editorial Reviews


"This is the foremost text on malingering. I have used it in the classroom and in practice for over 10 years. Each subsequent edition is updated with the latest research by noted authors in the field."--Richard P. Conti, PhD, Department of Psychology, College of Saint Elizabeth, Morristown, New Jersey

"Clearly written by a stellar cast of contributors, the volume is packed with diagnostic clues to a broad range of feigned conditions and guidelines for conducting definitive research. I recommend this extraordinarily useful book as a constant companion for anyone involved in practicing or studying the assessment of impression management."--Irving B. Weiner, PhD, ABPP, University of South Florida

"Rogers has done it again. Clinical Assessment of Malingering and Deception, Third Edition, will serve as the authoritative work on response style for years to come. The assessment of feigning is the cornerstone of any forensic mental health evaluation. This book is a 'must' for all forensic mental health professionals, and doubtless will be frequently consulted for the most up-to-date information on research and practice."--Alan M. Goldstein, PhD, ABPP, ABFP, Professor Emeritus, John Jay College of Criminal Justice, City University of New York

"Coverage encompasses the fabrication of symptoms by civil litigants, feigned psychosis on the part of criminal defendants, the minimizing of negative personality characteristics by law enforcement applicants, and many other topics. The volume emphasizes a scientific approach to the evaluation of malingering and deception. This is an essential resource for psychologists and other practitioners who work in forensic settings. General clinicians, particularly those involved in interviewing and assessment, also will find it a very useful reference."--Glenn J. Larrabee, PhD, ABPP-CN, independent practice, Sarasota, Florida

"Malingering and deception represent complicated but critical issues for clinical assessors. Edited by one of the leading scholars in the clinical assessment of deception, this volume provides comprehensive coverage of issues and instruments. It should be consulted regularly for guidance in this very difficult but important area of personality assessment."--Christopher J. Hopwood, PhD, Department of Psychology, Michigan State University

"This excellent and standard reference [occupies] a crucial space on many forensic psychiatrists' and psychologists' bookshelves....Useful in clinical practice, especially in institutions that serve forensic or correctional populations."--Journal of Psychiatric Practice
(Journal of Psychiatric Practice 2012-06-23)

"Akin to the eminence of the late Hervey Cleckley or Robert Hare as authorities on the topic of psychopathy, it is not unreasonable to accord Professor Richard Rogers analogous status as one of the world's leading scholars on the assessment of malingering....Mental health professionals are indebted to the steadfast endeavors of Professor Rogers and the various contributors he has assembled in this text....It is not sufficient for me to conclude by simply endorsing the merits of this book. Numerous mental health scholars have commented that the field of forensic psychology is arguably the fastest growing specialization within the discipline of psychology. In this field of dynamic growth Professor Rogers's text and the wealth of knowledge he has compiled from an august collection of contributors should be viewed as a mandatory item for all forensic mental health practitioners."--International Journal of Offender Therapy and Comparative Criminology
(International Journal of Offender Therapy and Comparative Criminology 2012-06-23)

"I highly recommend this volume to all clinicians and researchers who want to improve their skills."--Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease
(Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease 2012-06-23)

"This is an excellent reference book, and it certainly provides enough specific, clinically relevant information in the four chapters that flank the book to give most clinicians a good summary of the issues, available instruments, and research findings."--Canadian Psychology
(Canadian Psychology 2009-11-03)

"Exceedingly well done, and a lot of book for the price....Rogers' summary chapters on clinical applications and research are an outstanding example of how to pull together the material of many chapters and authors."--Clinical Gerontologist
(Clinical Gerontologist 2012-06-23)

"A huge strength of the book is the exceptional breadth of relevant subject matter, the appropriate detail and comprehensiveness of each chapter and their consistently good quality....The field of malingering is rapidly expanding and it should probably be viewed as a specialty in its own right. The best first step for all clinicians is to read this comprehensive, authoritative, and informative book. They can then make an informed decision about whether they want to change their practice and how to do it."--British Journal of Psychiatry
(British Journal of Psychiatry 2012-06-23)

“In this well-regarded volume, now in its much-deserved third edition, the editor and the contributors provide a framework for clinical assessment of deception and malingering….This is a rich volume that provides information and assessment strategies for patients who may be clinical challenges and enigmas. It is a lucid, well-written and helpful volume.”--International Journal of Social Psychiatry
(International Journal of Social Psychiatry 2013-12-27)

Format: Hardcover
This scholarly work is rich in study findings, discussion of past methods of screening for various types of malingering and is a good collection of some more obscure research. My only criticism is, that at times, it is a little difficult to read due to the long, in-text referencing. Footnotes would have been a better format. A 'Must Have' for any clinicial who might be called into the courtroom.

Dr. Rogers has once again compiled a superb collection of scholarly articles on diverse areas of malingering assessment. I literally have referred to this text dozens of times since I purchased it. It was a major source of information for a paper I recently wrote that concerned, in part, assessment of dissimulation in forensic disability evaluations. I also recently read the chapter, Assessment of Recovered and False Memories, which helped me better understand a complex, challenging case. Rogers' introductory chapters will provide you with a sophisticated understanding of the principles, assessment approaches, and research strategies related to detecting significant exaggeration and feigning of mental disorders (in addition to similar information on the detection of defensiveness or under-reporting). I highly recommend this essential reference.
