Abstract

This study addressed two issues, the interrelationship between the Millon Clinical Multiaxial Inventory (MCMI) and the Millon II (MCMI-II) and the value of the new personality scales, Aggressive and Self-defeating, in a sample with diagnoses of combat-related Posttraumatic Stress Disorder. 100 confirmed cases of combat-related Posttraumatic Stress Disorder were given a battery of measures including both Millon inventories and the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory (basic scales and selected subscales). They were rated on discharge status during a structured treatment program. Basic treatment and background information were also obtained. Analysis showed scores on the MCMI-II scales were higher but generally reflective of MCMI scales and that the Self-defeating personality style tends to be reflective of greater psychopathology, suicidal problems, treatment/disposition difficulties, overreporting of symptoms, and intensity of problems. Discussion encouraged the use of the MCMI-II with special emphasis given to the Self-defeating style in this group with Posttraumatic Stress Disorder.
