Read the full product description

Unlike instruments that focus on a single clinical area such as anxiety or depression, the M-PACI assessment provides an integrated view that synthesises the child's emerging personality styles and clinical syndromes, helping clinicians detect early signs of Axis I and Axis II disorders.

Guidance on using M-PACI in your Telepractice

Also available in digital format via Q-global®

Use M-PACI results to help:

  • Evaluate troubled pre-adolescents to confirm diagnostic hypotheses
  • Contribute to individualised treatment planning by providing an integrated picture of emerging personality patterns and current clinical signs
  • Measure progress before, during and after treatment

Key Features

  • Contains fewer than 100 questions and takes most pre-adolescents only 15 to 20 minutes to complete.
  • Uses age-appropriate language and requires minimal reading level.
  • Validated against expert clinician judgments and other leading self-report inventories for this age group.
  • Developed by Dr Theodore Millon, a leader in the field of personality development.
  • A summary of potential treatment strategies, tailored to each patient, is provided in the M-PACI interpretive report. This information can help clinicians decide which issues to focus on during treatment and how to address them with the patient.
