DeClue, G. (2002). Feigning does not equal malingering: A case study. Behavioral Sciences & the Law, 20(6), 717-726.
Researchers and scholars assert that feigning should not be equated with malingering. Some practicing clinicians doing the everyday work of forensic assessment may view this as merely an academic distinction. This case study illustrates that a high level of certainty about feigning must not be considered indicative of malingering. The case also contrasts two models for assessing malingering and highlights the need for forensic examiners to present assessment-of-malingering data clearly and cautiously.
