Product Description

An empirically based measure of adolescent psychopathology, the MMPI-A test contains adolescent-specific scales, and other unique features designed to make the instrument especially appropriate for today’s youth.

The MMPI-A test helps provide relevant information to aid in problem identification, diagnosis, and treatment planning for youth (ages 14 years to 18 years).

Use this self-report inventory to help:

  • Support diagnosis and treatment planning in a variety of settings

  • Identify the root causes of potential problems early on

  • Provide easy-to-understand information to share with everyone in the adolescent’s support network

  • Guide professionals in making appropriate referrals

Key features

  • Item content and language are relevant for adolescents.

  • At the psychologist’s discretion, the clinical scales and three of the validity scales can be scored from the first 350 items, a significant savings in administration time.

  • Norms are adolescent-specific.

  • Scales help address problems clinicians are more likely to see with adolescents, including family issues, eating disorders, and chemical dependency.
