Interpersonal Assessment of Future School Psychologists.
Dixon, Robert J.
The roles and expectations of school psychologists are expanding. Practitioners are increasingly being asked to move beyond the testing expectations to provide effective counseling and consultation interventions. Training programs are expected to create balanced, functioning practitioners who will make positive impacts on children's lives. This study examines future school psychologists' response to the Millon Inventory for Personality Styles (MIPS). The MIPS is designed to examine normal behavior along the axes of Motivating Aims, Cognitive Modes, and Interpersonal Behaviors. Promising information was provided by using the MIPS to classify students with interpersonal skills consistent with the demands of the school psychology profession, although there was no information to describe low performance. The narrative information provided by the scoring program provided some insight into the personality functioning of the individual. Responses are examined for a group of future school psychologists and related to their performance in the field. (JDM)
