An Interpretive Guide to the Personality Assessment Inventory (PAI) is a comprehensive resource on the use and interpretation of the PAI in clinical assessment, providing useful clinical and empirical information.

Author of the PAI, Leslie C. Morey has consolidated the results of clinical and empirical observations into a volume that provides additional insight into PAI interpretation. It is recommended for all practitioners and researchers who wish to maximise their use of this important instrument.

Topics include:

  • The meaning of individual PAI scales and subscale configurations
  • Meaning and correlates of two-point codetypes
  • Strategies for detecting sources of negative distortion (malingering, exaggeration, or random responding)
  • Identification of defensive responding or positive impression management (including denial of substance abuse problems)
  • Evaluation of PAI profiles for suicide or assaultive behaviour potential
  • Assessment of self-concept and inter-personal adaptation
  • Use of the PAI for planning and monitoring treatment.
