Explanatory Models of Malingering: A Prototypical Analysis
Preview not available

Abstract

Rogers (1990a, 1990b) proposed three models to explain why certain persons malinger mental illness: pathogenic, criminological, and adaptational. Highly experienced forensic experts (N = 320) performed prototypical ratings on attributes associated with each model; the highest ratings were given to the adaptational model. In addition, a principal components analysis provided initial empirical support for these three explanatory models. The relevance of these findings to theory and clinical practice is discussed.
