Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Gary B Kaniuk, Psy.D.(Cermak Health Services)
Description: This book describes the Millon personality inventories, among the most widely used instruments in psychology today. It covers both the older and newer inventories and shows how they are applied in clinical settings. The first edition was published 10 years ago.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide "the most current, authoritative overview of these instruments — and highlighting their role in individualized, evidence-based treatment planning and intervention — this volume is an essential resource for practitioners working in diverse settings."
Audience: The intended audience includes clinical psychologists, social workers, counselors, psychiatrists, and other practitioners, as well as researchers and students interested in personality disorders and clinical assessment and personality and social psychologists. Theodore Millon is Dean and Scientific Director of the Institute for Advanced Studies in Personology and Psychopathology and Caryl Bloom is a senior consultant for the institute. The contributors represent an international authorship from the United States, the Netherlands, Denmark, and Belgium.
Features: An introduction to the philosophy underlying personalized assessment begins the book. The authors define personalized assessment as "an explicit commitment to focus on the unique composite of a patient's psychological makeup." The book continues with a thorough look at the MCMI (Millon Clinical Multiaxial Inventory). Later, other Millon clinical inventories are discussed including the MBMD (Millon Behavioral Medicine Diagnostic) and MACI (Millon Adolescent Clinical Inventory). The book is very readable and contains helpful tables as well as excellent case studies that demonstrate how computerized test results from the Millon inventories can be used very pragmatically. Particularly interesting are chapters 7 and 8, which compare the MCMI with the Rorschach Comprehensive System and the MMPI. I especially appreciate the authors' attempt to individualize test results "guided by the psychic makeup of a patient's personality, rather than by a preferred theory, modality, or technique." The book has both an author and subject index.
Assessment: This is an excellent book for those interested in the Millon inventories. First and foremost, one of the editors is Theodore Millon, one of the most prolific writers in the area of personality assessment. The book contains many applications of the Millon inventories, including the most famous one, the MCMI. The authors emphasize personalizing the test findings, which is one of the greatest tasks for the psychometrician. This edition updates the material and includes new chapters, justifying the replacement of the first edition. Readers will not be disappointed.
From the Publisher

"This second edition presents the current thinking of leading experts on the Millon inventories into a 'mega-handbook' for the busy practitioner. In one volume, it provides both an introduction to the inventories and a comprehensive summary of the latest research and practice. Anyone who uses the Millon inventories, from the novice to the experienced practitioner, will want to keep this book close at hand."--Jack O'Regan, PhD, ABPP, Dean, College of Psychology and Behavioral Sciences, Argosy University

"More than a presentation of the Millon inventories, this book develops an overarching model of case conceptualization. The model extends from the small details of client presentation to an integrated guide on how best to develop treatment interventions. It is a welcome addition to the field that will be an informative guide for everyone from graduate students seeking to increase their depth of test-related knowledge to seasoned professionals who want to provide more integrated case conceptualizations."--Gary Groth-Marnat, PhD, ABPP, Doctoral Program in Clinical Psychology, Pacifica Graduate Institute

"In this era of reductionist approaches to mental illness, how refreshing it is to find a research-based and comprehensive volume still committed to the treatment of the whole person. Its rich assembly of chapters demonstrates how Millon’s wide battery of inventories can achieve a personalized evaluation that responds to the unique characteristics and concerns of each client in a variety of clinical and applied settings. This book should prove an invaluable resource to clinicians and to instructors who seek to train students in a holistic and personality-based approach to assessment and psychotherapy."--Jefferson A. Singer, PhD, Department of Psychology, Connecticut College

Bulletin of the Menninger Clinic

"This substantial volume updates research findings and clinical applications of the Millon inventories....A major strength of the inventories is that resulting profiles are individualized and personalized for each patient. Detailed case studies are described throughout....Clinicians and personality theorists interested in the definition and treatment of complex personality disorders will find this volume an important resource."--Bulletin of the Menninger Clinic
