The Personality Assessment Inventory-Adolescent (PAI-A) is an objective personality assessment for use with adolescents from 12-18 years of age. It is designed to complement its parent instrument, the Personality Assessment Inventory (PAI).
The PAI-A can be administered and scored by hand, via scoring software, or online via PARiConnect.
17 PAI-A items have been identified as critical items. The PAI-A Critical Item Form lists the 17 items whose responses may alert the clinician to the existence of behaviour or psychopathology that requires immediate attention.
