Base rates of malingering and symptom exaggeration

Abstract. Base rates for malingering are often obtained and averaged across multiple clinicians who apply heterogeneous methods for detection (Mittenberg et al., J Clin Exp Neuropsychol 24: 1094−1102, 2002; Young, Psychol Inj Law 8: 200–218, 2015).Our aims of obtaining homogenous base rates included the following: (a) evaluation of all our legal cases in accordance with the guidelines set The Malingering Probability Scale (MPS) was developed in the mid-1990s as a self-report instrument to estimate the probability of malingering, taking account of base rates in underlying populations.

In this paper we question the validity of factitious disorder as a meaningful psychiatric diagnosis. provided estimates of the prevalence of malingering and symptom exaggeration for a variety of different clinical conditions. 9 In this study, estimates of the base rate of malingering/symptom exaggeration were calculated using over 33,000 Although exaggeration or amplification of symptoms is common in all illness, deliberate deception is rare. In settings associated with litigation/disability evaluation, the rate of malingering may be as high as 30%, but its frequency in clinical practice is not known. Abstract National Survey of Symptom Exaggeration and Malingering Base Rates. The annual incidence or base rate of symptom exaggeration0malingering has been the subject of estimates that vary widely in magnitude and objectivity. Accurate base rate statistics are necessary for the calculation of diagnostic accuracy estimates. Base rates of exaggeration0malingering are reported from a survey of the ABCN membership.

While forensic settings in general harbor higher base rates of malingering, some clinical settings, such as those in which compensation-seeking veterans receive evaluation/treatment for posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), may have rates that approach or exceed base rates enumerated in forensic settings. 9 Therefore, mental health clinicians Base rates of malingering and symptom exaggeration were estimated by Mittenberg and colleagues, 7 who reported from a survey of the American Board of Clinical Neuropsychology membership that 30% of disability cases involved probable malingering and symptom exaggeration. This was estimated to be the base rate for malingering and symptom In this paper we question the validity of factitious disorder as a meaningful psychiatric diagnosis. provided estimates of the prevalence of malingering and symptom exaggeration for a variety of different clinical conditions. 9 In this study, estimates of the base rate of malingering/symptom exaggeration were calculated using over 33,000
