Description: This is the first full-length book to address the evaluative value of the Millon Adolescent Clinical Inventory (MACI). This resource accumulates the current research and the clinical expertise of the foremost workshop presenter of the MACI in an in-depth text that addresses the clinical usefulness of the most widely used adolescent test of personality and psychopathology.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a guide for understanding the MACI's interpretive value in clinical evaluations and an aid in appropriate treatment and management. The author's intention is to provide a comprehensive text for teaching the development and application of the MACI. This is an important, timely, and much needed understanding of the Millon Adolescent Clinical Inventory for addressing personality traits, which contributes to the understanding of patient's overall personality characteristics and clinical syndromes.
Audience: This book is written for graduate course study in personality assessment and will be an invaluable resource for the practicing professional who works with adolescents. The author is a leading expert in the development and utility of the MACI and gives practical applications of this instrument's personality pattern scales.
Features: The book includes clinical case vignettes that help to round out the MACI's clinical uses. There are sufficient tables and figures that aid in the discussion of the use of the MACI. The references give merit to MACI credibility and utility as a personality instrument.
Assessment: This is an extremely useful interpretive guide to the MACI and is a must-read for any clinician who evaluates adolescents. It brings together theoretical concepts and clinical applicability, and connects them with real-world clinical issues to aid in appropriate diagnosis and treatment of adolescent populations.
