An instrumental resource for professionals and students working with adolescents.

A landmark for MMPI instruments, this volume will serve as a vital contribution to the expanding base of successful MMPI-A applications. The authors' comprehensive approach to each of the sixteen clinically diverse cases constitutes an intrepretive model providing detailed information on the background of each case, profile validity, current level of adjustment, symptoms and traits, diagnostic and treatment recommendations, and outcome. Particular emphasis is placed on the new adolescent-specific scales developed to assess family and school problems, low self-esteem, and substance abuse.

Including background information on the development of the MMPI-A, the book is a useful resource for those new to the MMPI-A as well as an essential reference for those who have experience in MMPI interpretation with adolescents.
