Martin M. Katz: Multivantaged vs. Conventional Assessment Method

Donald F. Klein’s comment

 These few paragraphs by Katz on Multivantaged vs. Conventional Assessment Method (MVAM) has three references that supposedly establish its validity vs. conventional systems. The first two, dated 1984 and 2004, are not available online. The third, is Katz's book (Depression and Drugs) which is commented on in the INHN Book section. The Book expounds on MVAM, but no methodological comparative basis for MVAM vs. conventional systems is found. Unique advantages are claimed but not substantiated.

An attempt to find methodological discussions of MVAM in the literature failed.

The term "Multivantaged" has not achieved general usage or understanding.
