Abstract

The detection of malingered psychosis is sometimes quite difficult. The decision that an individual is malingering is made by assembling all of the clues from a thorough evaluation of a person's past and current functioning with corroboration from clinical records and other people. Identifying malingered psychosis will prevent unnecessary hospital admissions and is critical in forensic assessments. Indeed, clinicians bear considerable responsibility to assist society in differentiating true psychosis from malingered madness.
