There are very few psychodiagnostic instruments for assessing the emotional stability, cognitive outlook, and coping style of clients seen in rehabilitation settings. Established clinical tools have been designed for psychiatric populations and are only tangentially relevant. Excellent recent instruments for rehabilitation populations tend to focus on overt behavioral indices or vocational aptitudes. To supplement these latter realms of functioning, the Millon Behavioral Health Inventory (MBHI), a 150-item self-report inventory, may be seen to provide measures relevant to the client's psychological outlook and prognosis. It also appears useful as a guide for treatment planning and psychological counseling. The rationale, development, and uses of the MBHI are briefly described, while the focus of each of the instrument's 20 scales is also outlined.
