A Qualitative Analysis of the MAYSI-2: Screening for Co-Occurring Disorders in Adolescents
James, William H.; Randolph, Dwight E.
This study investigated the use of the Massachusetts Youth Screening Instrument (MAYSI-2) to screen for co-occurring disorders in an adolescent outpatient treatment program and to provide a preliminary assessment of those needs. The MAYSI-2 identified youth with co-occurring disorders and the results support existing recommendations for distinct screening procedures to identify emergent risk and service need. Case conceptualizations are presented and clinical implications for the screening of youth for co-occurring disorders are discussed.
