Introduction to the MCMI-IV: Assessment and Therapeutic Applications
This workshop will introduce the newest revision of the MCMI, the MCMI-IV (Millon, Grossman & Millon, 2015), and provide an overview of changes and updates to its constructs, scales, standardization and interpretive features. Included in the workshop’s activities will be a comprehensive overview of Millon’s Evolutionary Theory (including the last modifications and additions to the theory prior to his passing) and its application in the new test. The workshop will place particular emphasis on the underlying theory’s usefulness not only in constructing the instrument, but in creating a basis for an enhanced, empathic understanding of persons and an interface for creating effective, personalized therapeutic interventions.
