Antisocial attitudes and criminal associates are among the best predictors of antisocial behavior, and thus a critical target for reducing recidivism. The Measures of Criminal Attitudes and Associates (MCAA) is an evidence-based instrument which has been found to produce accurate and reliable assessments in peer-reviewed research across genders, ethnicities, and countries. A comprehensive structure, the MCAA is comprised of two parts: Part A is a quantified self-report measure of criminal associates, and Part B is a four-scale measure of antisocial attitudes. Presented by the lead developer of the instrument, this On Demand workshop will train you in the use of the MCAA while earning 5 hours of valuable Continuing Education Credit.
This On Demand workshop will discuss the development of the MCAA, review its administration protocol, give item-by-item instructions on how to reliably score the measure and interpret its findings, provide a review of the peer-reviewed research on the MCAA, and provide guidance on how mental health care providers in a variety of settings (e.g., corrections, forensic hospitals, counseling centers) can best utilize the MCAA in practice.
More cost-effective and time-efficient than attending an in-person workshop but covering the same content, this innovative On Demand training is the first-of-its-kind.
