Unlike many other instruments developed for adults and adapted for adolescents, the MACI assessment was specifically created to address the unique concerns, pressures and situations facing teens. This dedicated tool, recently enhanced by the addition of the Grossman Facet Scales, helps assess personality patterns as well as self-reported concerns and clinical symptoms. Brief and easy to administer, the MACI test can assist practitioners in constructing treatment plans customized to individual needs—and help them guide troubled youth toward healthier, more authentic lives.

New Grossman Facet Scales zero in on critical issues

The test is well-suited for use in all teen treatment settings, including outpatient, inpatient, day treatment and residential treatment programs. Psychologists, psychiatrists, school psychologists, juvenile justice professionals and other mental health professionals find this versatile instrument essential in helping to:

  • Conduct detailed evaluations to confirm diagnostic hypotheses
  • Create individualized treatment plans
  • Measure progress before, during and after treatment

Key Features

To help you formulate more precise treatment plans, the new Grossman Facet Scales identify personality processes (e.g., self-image, mood temperament) that underlie overall scale elevations on the Personality Pattern scales. Each personality scale now has three facet scales, for which results are presented in the automated reports.

  • Using an age-appropriate format, the MACI test helps measure a number of factors closely associated with adolescents, including Sexual Discomfort, Substance Abuse Proneness, Suicidal Tendency and Eating Dysfunctions.
  • Taking 30 minutes or less to complete, the MACI test is designed to obtain the maximum amount of information with a minimal amount of the test-taker's effort—a feature that mental health professionals have found especially helpful in working with adolescents.
