  • MMPI-2-RF: Basic Overview

    Presenter: Yossef S. Ben-Porath

    View Past Webinars

    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.

    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.

  • Advanced Interpretation of the WISC-V

    Presenter: Gloria Maccow, PhD

    View Past Webinars

    The test structure of the WISC–V was influenced by structural models of intelligence, neurodevelopmental theory and neurocognitive research, and research with clinical populations. The changes in conceptual structure, along with changes to the score differences comparison methodology, and the expansion of process scores enhance the interpretive clarity of the instrument. For example:

    • The availability of separate Visual-Spatial and Fluid Reasoning index scores on the WISC-V allows clinicians to better understand why a child is struggling to perform specific academic skills.
    • The addition of visual working memory enhances the scale’s clinical utility due to the domain-specific differential sensitivity of auditory and visual working memory tasks to a wide variety of clinical conditions.
    • Complementary subtests provide information on the cognitive processes associated with reading, mathematics, and writing skills.

    This one-hour webinar will focus on the interpretation of the WISC-V. The presenter will describe primary, ancillary, and complementary indexes and will use sample data to illustrate the interpretive process. As a result of the session, participants will be able to describe:

    1. The cognitive processes represented by the WISC-V index scores,
    2. The theoretical link between specific cognitive abilities and specific academic skills, and
    3. How to use performance on the WISC-V to generate hypotheses about processing deficits.

  • MMPI-2-RF: Police and Law Enforcement

    Presenter: Dave Corey, Ph.D., ABPP

    View Past Webinars

    The MMPI-2-RF is used in various pre-employment settings to assist employers in identifying candidates who possess personality and behavioral characteristics that may be inconsistent with the demands of a position, particularly in public safety occupations. In this webinar, internationally recognized police psychologist David M. Corey discusses the use of the MMPI-2-RF in police and law enforcement candidate evaluations. Dr. Corey will discuss the use of the MMPI-2-RF in empirically grounded evaluations with a special emphasis on test interpretation guidelines that will assist you in accurately and efficiently evaluating police and law enforcement candidates.

    Prior to attending this webinar, it is recommended that you have attended the MMPI-2-RF: Basic Overview webinar presented by Dr. Yossef Ben-Porath or that you have an understanding of the empirical foundations of the MMPI-2-RF.

  • Everything You Need to Know About Early Childhood Assessment

    Presenter: Gloria Maccow, PhD

    View Past Webinars

    Children in early childhood programs do amazing things. They dress themselves, brush their teeth, and wash their hands. They run, climb, hop, kick, bounce a ball, and ride a tricycle. They manipulate blocks and books and they use crayons and pencils to write and draw. They interact with adults and peers, talk while walking, tell you how many objects they see without counting, and use grammatically correct sentences to describe what they did during the weekend. How do we know these acts are amazing? It is because we understand what children of a certain age are expected to do – we understand developmental expectations. And we are constantly collecting information that allows us to compare what each child does to what we reasonably expect a child that age to be able to do. This is assessment!

    This one-hour webinar will describe different types of assessments that are used for different purposes. The presenter will discuss the importance of selecting assessments that are developmentally appropriate, culturally and linguistically responsive, tied to children’s daily activities, inclusive of families, and supported by professional development.

  • Adding Positive Psychology to Your Practice

    Presenter: Michael B. Frisch, PhD

    View Past Webinars

    This webinar presentation addresses:

    • Case examples of easy ways to quickly add Positive Psychology to your clinical and coaching practice
    • How the brief measure of positive mental health, the Quality of Life Inventory (QOLI), can help make your overall assessments more complete, track patient outcomes, and serve as an effective intervention in and of itself
    • How to quickly use evidence-based assessments and interventions, including Quality of Life Therapy and Coaching which Ed Diener (2013) and  Marty Seligman (see page 292 of his book, Flourish)  call comprehensive, step-by-step, and empirically validated.
    • How adding a small piece of Positive Psychology can boost treatment effectiveness and prevent relapse.
    • How Positive Psychology can help you Develop a Coaching Practice in which you serve higher functioning individuals without DSM disorders.

    The QOLI is a comprehensive five minute assessment that yields an overall score and a profile of problems and strengths in 16 areas of life such as love, work, and play. The QOLI can help laypeople, clients, and professionals in a wide range of settings including positive psychology, clinical psychology, coaching, behavioral medicine, organizational psychology, substance abuse, gerontology, career counseling, and quality assurance.
