The MACI™ inventory (Millon™ Adolescent Clinical Inventory), like other Millon inventories, is distinguished from other clinical instruments primarily by its brevity, its theoretical anchoring, multiaxial format, tripartite construction and validation schema, use of base rate scores, and interpretive depth. The MACI™ inventory supplements the Millon™ Adolescent Personality Inventory (MAPI™)in that it was developed specifically for use in clinical, residential, and correctional settings. It is useful primarily in the evaluation of troubled adolescents, and may be used for diagnostic assistance, in formulating treatment plans, and as an outcome measure.
The MACI™ test consists of a total of 31 scales: Twelve Personality Patterns scales (Axis II), eight Expressed Concerns Scales, seven Clinical Syndrome Scales, three Modifying Indices (which assess particular response styles), and a Validity scale. The table below lists the inventory's scales. The twelve personality patterns parallel those of the DSM-III, III-R, and IV. The Expressed Concerns scales focus on feelings and attitudes about issues that tend to concern most troubled adolescents. The Clinical Syndromes scales assess disorders frequently seen in adolescent populations. As noted, in 2006, a series of Facet Subscales oriented to the personologic/clinical domains have been added to the basic personality scales.
