MEASURE OF NEED Measures of Criminal Attitudes and Associates (MCAA)

The MCAA is a two-part self-report measure of criminal thinking style and antisocial associates. Part A is a quantified self-report measure of antisocial associates. Part B contains four attitude scales: Violence, Entitlement, Antisocial Intent, and Associates. The MCAA has demonstrated significant associations with other measures of criminal thinking style and predictive validity for the outcomes of general and violent recidivism.
