MACI-II: Challenges in Assessing Complex Teens (Recording)
Presenter(s): Dr. Robert Tringone
This one-hour webinar will present intriguing findings for a juvenile justice group from the MACI®-II standardization sample vs matched controls. Focusing on how the MACI-II assesses trauma symptoms within the context of emerging personality types, an illustrative case will be presented.
The Millon Adolescent Clinical Inventory®-II (MACI-II) was developed and standardized with a large normative sample (>1100 subjects) in multiple clinical settings, including juvenile justice/corrections (JJC) settings. Over the past 25 years or so, a substantial literature base, founded on studies from around the globe, has documented connections between exposure to adverse childhood experiences and trauma symptoms in adolescents who are seen in various JJC settings.
This one-hour webinar will present intriguing findings between JJC subjects in comparison to matched controls from the overall MACI-II normative sample. A particular focus will be on how the MACI-II assesses trauma symptoms within the context of an adolescent’s emerging personality type. Many of these findings appear to be consistent with what has been reported in the literature. An illustrative case will highlight key points.
