    View Past Webinars

    This webinar presentation provides a brief overview of the rationale for, and methods used to develop the MMPI-2-RF, and the various materials available to score and interpret the test. 

    Composed of 338 items, with the RC (Restructured Clinical) Scales at its core, the MMPI-2-RF builds on the strengths of the MMPI®-2. It features 51 new and revised empirically validated scales and takes only 35-50 minutes to administer. The MMPI-2-RF was released in August 2008.

    The MMPI-2-RF aids clinicians in the assessment of mental disorders, identification of specific problem areas, and treatment planning in a variety of settings. The test can be used to help:

    • Assess major symptoms of psychopathology, personality characteristics, and behavioral proclivities.
    • Evaluate participants in substance abuse programs and select appropriate treatment approaches.
    • Assess medical patients and design effective treatment strategies, including chronic pain management.
    • Provide valuable insight for marriage and family counseling.
    • Support classification, treatment, and management decisions in criminal justice and correctional settings.
    • Identify high-risk candidates in public safety screening and selection settings.
    • Give strong empirical foundation for expert testimony in forensic evaluations.

  • Observing During Interactions

    Presenter: Judy Jablon, MS

    View Past Webinars

    Research tells us that the child is most open to learning during moments of teacher-child interaction. These are the moments where the decisions about instruction can be shaped to have the greatest impact on the child’s learning. Amidst the busy-ness of classrooms and programs, quieting one’s mind to really stop and listen to a child’s agenda can be challenging. In this one-hour webinar, Work Sampling System author Judy Jablon will discuss how the Powerful Interactions model can help to integrate assessment and interactions.
