161 Applying Regulatory Issues and
APA Ethics Standards to
Prevention Research With
Using case examples, video, and discussion, this
intermediate workshop will enable psychologists to better integrate
research with APA Ethics Code standards and regulatory and
IRB requirements for prevention science among marginal-ized populations engaged in health-compromising behaviors.
Specific areas will include: (a) effects of issues such as age,
culture, and capacity on informed consent; (b) effects of policies such as mandated reporting on confidentiality especially
with sensitive topics (e.g., drug use, sexuality); and (c) development of appropriate data safety monitoring plans.

162 Contemporary Use of the
MMPI- 2 in Forensic Assessments
This intermediate workshop will help guide expert examiners on
interpreting MMPI- 2 validity and basic clinical and other scale
scores to maximize their potential in a medico–legal context.
Essential to the use of any psychological test is knowledge of
its scientific basis so that its validity may be argued in court.
Presenters will bring participants up to date on the MMPI- 2, the
most widely used personality measure in terms of interpretive
guidelines and research support, and will clarify information
about recent controversial measures involving MMPI assessment.
Leaders: Linda D. Nelson, PhD, University of California, Los Angeles;

163 Ethics and Self-Care: Balancing
Our Lives and Reducing Risk
When our emotional or physical health negatively impacts
our work, it creates ethical risk because our professional
competence may be compromised. In this intermediate workshop, participants will complete a self-assessment measure
and discuss vignettes related to self-care and professional
competence. Participants will also discuss effective self-care
strategies that include a focus on our intellectual, emotional,
physical, and spiritual selves.
