MMPI-A 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.

Offering reports tailored to particular settings, 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 parents, teachers, and others 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.

Norms

The normative sample of the MMPI-A test consists of 805 adolescent males and 815 adolescent females from eight communities in the U.S. The sites were chosen to maximize the probability of obtaining a balanced sample of subjects according to geographic region, rural/urban residence, and ethnic background.
