Description

This book presents state-of-the-art information on both the scientific and clinical aspects of the Millon Clinical Multiaxial Inventory, a test that uniquely assesses both personality pathology and psychopathology. The book presents original contributions from major researchers/clinicians who have published seminal papers on the MCMI and who are recognized authorities in their specific areas. Clinical examples of the MCMI with a variety of clinical populations are provided, and many chapters summarize the research in that area as well as present clinical illustrations of the MCMI with actual cases. The book provides the reader with the most accurate information on the MCMI -- a test that has made exciting advances in the assessment of personality and psychopathology. The scientific and clinical status of this instrument is presented with a variety of clinical populations, including major psychiatric disorders, depression, substance abuse, anxiety disorders, eating and stress disorders, etc. Recent applications and advances in special areas, such as the instrument's use with medical populations and non-clinical populations, are also presented.show more
