The Miller Forensic Assessment of Symptoms Test (M-FAST) is a 25-item screening interview for adults that helps assess the likelihood that an individual is feigning psychiatric illness.
Ideal for use in a wide variety of settings, including VA hospitals, correctional institutions, and inpatient/outpatient treatment facilities, the M-FAST screens for malingered psychiatric illness in adults from 18-71 years of age.
The flexibility of the structured interview format allows examiners to determine when, where, and to whom the M-FAST should be administered, and the M-FAST can be easily integrated into a larger evaluation.
The 8-page M-FAST Interview Booklet contains the 25 M-FAST items with scoring instructions. Areas for recording notes, observations, scale scores and the Total Score are provided. The first page, where the demographic information, scale scores and Total Score are recorded is perforated and can be removed to facilitate scoring.
