Millon® Pre-Adolescent Clinical Inventory is specifically designed to identify psychological problems in children.

Product Details

Psychologists, psychiatrists, school psychologists, and other mental health professionals can use M-PACI results to help pinpoint the source of pre-adolescent issues. M-PACI is used for pre-adolescent assessment in outpatient, inpatient, day treatment, and residential treatment settings.


  • Evaluate troubled pre-adolescents to confirm diagnostic hypotheses.
  • Contribute to individualized treatment planning by providing an integrated picture of emerging personality patterns and current clinical signs.
  • Measure progress before, during, and after treatment.


M-PACI was developed by Dr. Theodore Millon, a leader in the field of personality development. The normative population of the M-PACI consists of 292 pre-adolescents, ages 9–12, from 53 sites from across the U.S.

  • Fewer than 100 questions which take most pre-adolescents only 15–20 minutes to complete.
  • Age-appropriate language, requiring minimal reading level.
  • Validated against expert clinician judgments and other leading self-report inventories for this age group.
  • Includes a summary of potential treatment strategies, tailored to each patient.

Test Content

What is the reading level of the M-PACI items?

The M-PACI items are at the third-grade reading level.

Is the M-PACI inventory appropriate for use with non-clinical cases?

No. The inventory was developed and normed based on the responses of 9- to 12-year-olds who were being seen in clinical settings. It should not be used to screen non-clinical cases for psychological problems.

Can the M-PACI inventory be used in school settings?

Yes, but only with children who have been referred for evaluation and/or counseling due to apparent behavioral and/or emotional problems. In other words, it should only be used with clinical cases.

Can the M-PACI inventory be used with children younger than 9 or older than 12?

No. The children involved in the M-PACI development and validation research were between the ages of 9 and 12. Thus, there are no data to support M-PACI use with children outside this age range. The scoring software will not score the inventory if the child is younger than 9 or older than 12.

Is the M-PACI inventory available in any languages other than English?

Not at this time.


How long does it take most children to complete the M-PACI inventory?

Twenty minutes or less.

IIs the M-PACI inventory available for administration over the Internet?

No. The M-PACI inventory can be administered on-screen using this software or it can be administered paper and pencil.


How many M-PACI items can be omitted before the inventory is unscorable?

If five or more items are omitted (either left blank or double-marked) the inventory is unscorable. If possible, the child should be asked to answer omitted items so that the inventory can be scored.
