Campbell™ Interest and Skill Survey AGE: 15-Adult   The Campbell Interest and Skill Survey (CISS) measures self-reported vocational interests and skills. Similar to traditional interest inventories, the CISS interest scales reflect an individual’s attraction for specific occupational areas. However, the CISS instrument goes beyond traditional inventories by adding parallel skill scales that provide estimates of an individual’s confidence in his or her ability to perform various occupational activities. Together, the two types of scales provide more comprehensive, richer data than interest scores alone. The Internet version of the CISS survey, which includes an innovative test management system for counselors and an expanded CISS Career Planner, adds new dimension to this dynamic, popular instrument. The CISS instrument focuses on careers that require post-secondary education and is most appropriate for use with individuals who are college bound or college educated. How to Use This Instrument Counselors, psychologists, and human resource professionals in mental health, business, and educational settings can use the CISS survey to help: Explore new avenues in career development Pinpoint areas of academic study that can build skills and, as a result, increase career options Support personal counseling by identifying occupations or vocations that help meet the individual’s needs Advise […] Read More

Millon™ Pre-Adolescent Clinical Inventory AGE: 9-12   Every child deserves to enjoy youth to the fullest. But for some young people, psychological problems can stand in the way—and these difficulties may take root long before the “troubled teens.” As a professional who works with children daily, you know first-hand the challenges some preteens face.
