Practical Model and Protocol for Interpreting MCMI-III Results to Clients.
Staley, Joy D.; Brown, Nathan C.
One ethical dilemma for psychologists is finding methods to share test results with their clients in such a way that the client is not deleteriously labeled, but is encouraged by the knowledge of assessed strength and growth areas. This paper offers one answer by presenting a structured protocol that draws on an iceberg metaphor for categorizing the Millon Clinical Multiaxial Inventory-III (MCMI-III) results. Although based on the theoretical underpinnings of Millon, the Iceberg Model is visually simple and understandable for clients, and available as a handout that can be taken home with them. It also aids the psychologists in treatment planning with clear clinical, childhood, personality, cultural, and situational therapeutic targets. (Contains 2 tables and 14 references.) (Author/JDM)
