Practical Training: Faking Good, Faking Bad
Full course description
Several tools exist that allow for the detection of faking. In this workshop – consisting of 2 sessions - students will be trained to use these so-called symptom validity tests (SVTs) by applying them in a known scenario where someone will be instructed to fake or deny symptoms. In addition, students will be made familiar with concepts that are relevant in the context of symptom validity testing (e.g., fantasy proneness).
Malingering, Symptom Validity Testing, Faking good, and Fantasy proneness.
At the end of this practical students:
- are able to apply these tests, score them, and summarize the results;
- are able to present the results in the form of a patient vignette/grand round.
