Many mental health professionals have no training in detecting malingered mental illness. Since deinstitutionalization, it has become much more difficult for patients to be admitted to private psychiatric hospitals and state hospitals. Some patients resort to grossly exaggerating their symptoms and others make up symptoms for “3 hots and a cot.” The goal of this session is to provide mental health professionals with clues and signs to detect lies and to distinguish between feigned and genuine psychotic symptoms. Mental health professionals will be able to provide appropriate assistance to patients desperate enough to misrepresent their symptoms and better utilize limited mental health resources.
