MCMI-IV and MACI-II: Operationalizing the Millon Inventories from Adolescence through Adulthood.
Seth Grossman, Psy.D., and Robert Tringone, Ph.D.
Wednesday, March 29, 2023, 8:30am – 5:30pm
This workshop focuses on operationalizing the Millon Clinical Inventories (MCMI-IV and MACI-II) through an exploration of the guiding theory, developmental/attachment considerations, and psychometric properties. Participants will engage in a primer in both instruments, including an overview of their structures and scales, psychometric properties, relationship to diagnosis and treatment, and responsible use/limitations on use based on population and mental health status. Topics include using the guiding theory and developmental markers in concert with assessment results to engage individuals in the clinical alliance, examine conflicts, response style, and unexpected results to understand deeper motivations, and building meaningful interventions based around the person’s improved self-understanding from the assessment process. Adult and adolescent case examples will provide interactive opportunities for participants to practice skill sets enhanced by the theory.
