Purpose: Measure personality and psychopathology in children and adolescents with more severe behavioural problems
Age: 8 +
Time: 20-30 minutes
The Jesness Inventory–Revised (JI–R) is a comprehensive, self-report measure of personality and psychopathology that is applicable to children and adolescents with more severe behavioural problems, and with whom violence potential is a concern.
Results from the JI–R provide valuable insight into the potential causes of certain behaviours, and is particularly useful when differentiating between social maladjustment and emotional disturbance.
Conventional scores are provided for the 11 subtypes, while classification scores are provided for the 9 personality subtypes. An Asocial Index score is also provided.
Online Assessment and Reporting (MHS Assessment Center+)
Online administration via MAC+ allows the assessor the flexibility to send a link to each respondent to complete the assessment at a location (e.g., child care center, school). Assessors using online scoring also have the option of printing E-Paper forms that can be scored online by entering the responses.
