MMPI-2 assessed post-traumatic stress disorder related to job stress, coping, and personality in police agencies



Stress and Health 20(4): 223-229



The PK and PS scales of the MMPI-2 were developed to index the degree of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). These scales were applied to a sample of 254 mostly male sworn and civilian law enforcement employees from four police agencies. Participants also completed surveys measuring their perceived levels of job stress, their use of a set of coping strategies, and their performance on measures of five global personality domains.
