Marital Assessment Inventory (MAI)
H. Norman Wright
Qualification Level: A
What the FHA is to premarital counseling, the MAI is to Marital Counseling – indispensable! Use this evaluation/information gathering tool prior to the initial consultation, or during the process of marriage counseling. This quick and easy inventory serves several important purposes:
• It provides the counselor or minister with much of the data needed for planning prior to the first counseling session.
• It helps the couple to anticipate the kinds of concerns that will be discussed, and in that way helps to introduce them to the process of counseling.
• Answers to inventory questions also initiate changes in the ways in which spouses think about their objectives and can bring about some change before the first interview.
Included are sections on:
• Family Structure and Background
Personal Family Background
Current Levels of Satisfaction
Goals for Counseling
Change and Commitment Level
