Pearson collecting adult clinical cases in support of MCMI-III revision

Pearson and the MCMI author group are pleased to let you know that we have started to collect standardization data in support of the MCMI revision project.  We are hoping that you may be willing to help us network a bit — or even better — collect some standardization cases!

If you or any of the colleagues in your network would be willing to consider participating in data collection, please feel free to pass along this email message and/or get in contact with us.  Key contacts at Pearson are listed below for additional information and to sign up.

It is worth noting that there are some attractive incentives tied to this project and only a small amount of extra work involved – especially if a clinician is already administering the MCMI-III or other assessments on Q-global from Pearson as part of their practice.

While we are hoping to collect the majority of data online via Pearson Q-global scoring and reporting platform, we will have a paper option available by the end of the month for those who would be more comfortable using paper forms.

Any assistance you could lend within your networks in support of this project would be very much appreciated by the Millon/Pearson development team!  My colleagues in Pearson’s Field Research department are listed below should you have specific questions.

The entire MCMI team is eager and excited to help carry on Dr. Millon’s important work and legacy through this important project.  Thank you for helping us to achieve this!

Take care, and my very best to you.  CJ

Opportunity for colleagues currently counseling clinical adult patients: Pearson is currently collecting adult clinical cases in support of the revision of the MCMI-III.  There are cash or Pearson report credits available as incentives for participating.  For more information about this project and opportunity, please feel free to contact Darrell Stiffey or Jason Purcell at Pearson: or
