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.
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.
Results from the JI-R provide valuable insight into the potential causes of certain behaviours. It is particularly useful when differentiating between social maladjustment and emotional disturbance.
The JI-R Technical Manual describes the components of the JI-R, including items, scales, research properties, administration, scoring options, interpreting results and the JI-R classification system.
