The Multiaxial Diagnostic Inventory - Revised Edition (MDI-R) is a criterion-referenced diagnostic screening instrument designed to assess personality disorders and clinical syndromes.  It was developed for psychotherapists who need a quick yet effective diagnostic checklist that does not require complex scoring or the use of a reference manual.  Originally designed to bridge the gap between psychological testing and psychiatric diagnosis, the checklist includes adapted DSM-IV diagnostic descriptors.  The MDI-R can be used in psychological assessment, treatment planning, and as a treatment outcome measure.  In managed care practice, it can be used to document medical necessity criteria for initial treatment and it can facilitate reviews by third-party utilization reviewers.  Four scales are available: Personality, Adult Clinical, Adolescent Clinical and Child Clinical.

"These four scales are excellent.  They are comprehensive, efficient and simple to use.  Because the patient as well as the practitioner can complete them, they allow for interesting comparisons.  Because they are so closely tied  to the DSM-IV, they are quite helpful in treatment planning.  They are invaluable screening instruments.  While they are useful to all practitioners, they would seem to be a must for the hospital-based consultant.  And the accompanying manual matches the instruments in its clarity, simplicity and brevity.  These are lean, efficient products and will be useful to a variety of health care psychologists."
-George Taylor, PhD, Independent Practitioner
