Product Details

Uniquely based on corrections norms, the MCMI-III Corrections Report presents targeted information to help psychologists and corrections professionals make security, management, and treatment decisions faster and more accurately. In addition to providing all of the clinical information to which MCMI-III test users are accustomed, the Corrections Report is distinguished by the inclusion of a one-page Correctional Summary of likely needs and behaviors relevant to correctional settings.

Now, this highly useful summary has been further strengthened by the addition of empirically based statements that classify an offender's probable need as High, Medium, or Low in three critical areas:

  • Mental health intervention
  • Substance abuse treatment, and
  • Anger management services.

Developed through a recent study that involved more than 10,000 offenders, these statements are designed to help inform staff of likely offender behaviors to help support crucial programming and placement decisions.

In addition, the summary provides clinically based statements on six issues of most concern in corrections settings:

  • Reaction to Authority
  • Escape Risk
  • Disposition to Malinger
  • Response to Crowding / Isolation
  • Amenability to Treatment / Rehabilitation, and
  • Suicidal Tendencies

Backed by Dr. Millon's APA award-winning theory of personality as well as continued validation of clinical factors, the MCMI-III Corrections Report helps enable effective decision-making throughout the incarceration process.

How to Use the Report

With the addition of the new predictive statements, the Corrections Report provides even greater support to help mental health staff, clinicians, social workers, case managers, security personnel, and line staff workers:

  • Classify offenders at intake
  • Interpret all intake information, including other assessments, social history, and criminal background
  • Create a baseline measure against which an offender's adjustment during incarceration can be tracked
  • Alert personnel to potential issues to help them determine how to best manage offenders' behaviors
  • Evaluate offenders for mental health concerns during the course of their incarceration
  • Determine appropriateness of educational programs
  • Evaluate offenders at change in status
  • Assess offenders for their readiness to be released

Key Features

  • The predictive strength of the new empirically based statements can help correctional personnel more accurately anticipate management, staffing, and budgetary needs by helping to identify those offenders who may require higher levels of mental health, substance abuse, and anger management services, and those individuals who may not benefit from these programs.
  • The brief MCMI-III test is especially well-suited for correctional settings and can easily be administered by appropriately trained personnel.
  • The MCMI-III test can be taken in English or Spanish in the traditional pencil-and-paper format or by audiocassette recording.

Time- and Cost-Efficient Administration

  • The MCMI-III test has 175 questions that take approximately 25 minutes to complete, making it efficient to administer in settings where time, space, and privacy are limited.
  • The English version can also be administered on-line using Q Local™ software, enabling you to receive a report within minutes.
  • Administration can be readily and routinely handled by properly trained personnel in prison settings, helping to make more efficient use of psychologists' time.

Millon's Perspective on Corrections

The primary need for all corrections facilities is to adequately manage the individuals assigned to them. In short, corrections officials must maintain control over the facility while preventing injury to the public, staff and other inmates. Through interviews and assessment, corrections psychologists provide insight into inmates' behaviors and attitudes and how these factors may affect safety, security and service levels.

The MCMI-III test has been used for this purpose for many years, but Dr. Millon believed the report could be tailored to more specifically target prison-related issues. As a result, 48 correctional psychologists from several state prison systems were consulted and asked to estimate the frequency of 11 characterologic styles found among the inmates with whom they worked. In addition, this group was asked to suggest content areas and report features that could maximize their use of the MCMI-III tests.

Already extensively validated in clinical studies, the MCMI-III test has been further refined by extensive studies of 1,676 male and female inmates. Base rate cutting scores were also refined to best match this correctional population.

As correctional facilities increase their use of the MCMI-III Corrections Report, more empirical support will be available to continue the validation of these correctional scales.

FAQs

Questions

Frequently asked questions follow. Click on a question to see the response.

  • What is the difference between the MCMI-III Interpretive Report and the MCMI-III Corrections Report?

    These reports differ in two major ways. First, the corrections report was normed on a correctional population rather than a psychiatric population. BR (base rate) modifications were made for those Clinical Personality Patterns scales (1–8B) where differences in prevalence were found between correctional inmates and psychiatric patients. (For males, these scales are 1, 2A, 2B, 4, 6B, 7, 8A, and 8B; for females, they are 2A, 3, 4, 6B, 7, and 8A.)

    Second, the MCMI-III Corrections Report includes supplementary information that augments the MCMI-III Interpretive Report in several areas that are salient in correctional settings: need for mental health intervention, need for substance abuse treatment, need for anger management services, reaction to authority, escape risk, disposition to malinger, response to crowding/isolation, amenability to treatment/rehabilitation, and suicidal tendencies.

  • Is the MCMI-III Corrections Report based on empirical data?

    Parts of the report are based on empirical data, and parts are based on Dr. Millon's theories and clinical insights. For example, each inmate is classified as "High," "Moderate," or "Low" in terms of his or her probable need for mental health intervention, for substance abuse treatment, and for anger management services. These classifications are based on prediction models developed as part of a large-scale research project involving over 10,000 inmates who completed the MCMI-III test at intake. (This research is described in more detail below.) Other behavioral and clinical predictions and inferences contained in the report, such as an analysis of the inmate's personality patterns and of treatment considerations, are theoretically driven

  • With the high rate of incarceration for blacks and Hispanics, what is the cultural sensitivity of the MCMI-III Corrections Report?

    Cultural sensitivity probably isn't an issue, but it can be studied in future research. For example, initial studies indicate that ethnic/cultural background isn't a factor in violent tendencies. (Gang membership was a poor predictor of violence in maximum security prisons.) The MCMI-III Corrections Report helps corrections staff deal with inmates and make the best management decisions regardless of ethnic/cultural background.

  • What additional research has been done regarding the usefulness of the MCMI-III Corrections Report in prison systems?

    Between 1995 and 1999, approximately 10,000 consecutive inmate admissions to the Colorado Department of Corrections were administered the MCMI-III as a part of their intake screening. The results of this initial screening were then compared with the "real-world" outcomes obtained from routine management within the correctional system. This comparison produced the following data.

    • An inmate with a score of 75 or more on the major depression scale is 950% more likely to be rated as a "high risk for psychiatric services" than an inmate with a score of 74 or less. This same inmate is 790% more likely to be given a psychiatric diagnosis, 740% more likely to be placed on psychotropic medications, and 450% more likely to be a "high user" of mental health time.
    • An inmate with a score of 75 or more on the drug abuse scale is 1130% more likely to be rated as a "high risk for substance abuse services" than an inmate with a score of 74 or less. This same inmate is 130% more likely to be charged and convicted of a drug-related offense after being in prison.
    • An inmate with a score of 75 or more on the antisocial scale is 420% more likely to be rated as a "high risk for substance abuse services" than an inmate with a score of 74 or less. This same inmate is 120% more likely to be charged and convicted of a drug-related offense after being in prison.
    • An inmate with a score of 75 or more on the alcohol abuse scale is 140% more likely to be rated as a "high risk for assaultive problems" than an inmate with a score of 74 or less. This same inmate is 140% more likely to be charged and convicted of an assault after being in prison. For more information on this study, contact us at 800-627-7271.
  • Can I receive an interpretive report (not a corrections report) for an examinee in a Correctional Inmate setting?

    Yes. When the Correctional Inmate setting is indicated, the clinician can choose to receive either the MCMI-III Interpretive Report or the Corrections Report. If an MCMI-III Interpretive Report is generated for the Correctional Inmate setting, the original psychiatric norms will be used. The only difference between an interpretive report for this setting and one for any other setting is that the examinee is referred to as an "inmate" rather than as a "patient." If the corrections report is generated, the correctional norms will be used.

  • Is there research to support the usefulness of the MCMI-III Corrections Report in prison systems?

    In a large-scale study, the MCMI-III test scores of over 10,000 state prison inmates tested at intake were compared to important outcomes obtained from the state's inmate management system in the areas of mental health, substance abuse, and violence. Scores on many of the individual MCMI-III scales showed strong predictive relationships with outcomes such as intake rating of apparent need for mental health intervention and substance abuse treatment, subsequent prescription of psychotropic medication, and subsequent involvement in psychotherapy.

    Further, as mentioned above, three prediction models were developed from the data, each involving a different set of MCMI-III predictor scales. These models are used in the MCMI-III Corrections Report to classify each inmate according to his or her probable need for mental health intervention, substance abuse treatment, and anger management services. The validity of these classifications was demonstrated in a cross-validation sample. For example, the higher the level of need for mental health intervention predicted from the MCMI-III test, the more likely an inmate was (a) to be rated by corrections staff as requiring mental health services, (b) to subsequently be assigned a DSM™ Axis I diagnosis, (c) to subsequently be prescribed psychotropic medication, and (d) to subsequently be seen by a mental health professional for 15 or more minutes per month. Need for substance abuse treatment and need for anger management services predicted from the MCMI-III models were similarly shown to relate to corrections staff ratings made at intake and to objective outcomes over a follow-up period. Details of this research, as well as tables showing specific results, are given in the MCMI-III Corrections Report User's Guide.

  • Can I receive an Interpretive Report (not a Corrections Report) for an examinee in a correctional inmate setting?

    Yes. When the Correctional Inmate setting is indicated, the clinician can choose to receive either the MCMI-III Interpretive Report or the Corrections Report. If an MCMI-III Interpretive Report is generated for the Correctional Inmate setting, the original psychiatric norms will be used. The only difference between an interpretive report for this setting and one for any other setting is that the examinee is referred to as an "inmate" rather than as a "patient." If the corrections report is generated, the correctional norms will be used.
