  • MMPI-2-RF: Forensic Practice Briefing

    Presenter: Martin Sellbom, PhD

    Topic(s):

    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.

    Continuing Education (CE) credits are not offered for this webinar. For information on upcoming MMPI-2-RF CE workshops, visit http://www.pearsonclinical.com/mmpiworkshops

    View Past Webinars

    Here, we will review the common tools used in an assessment such as the timer, notes, contextual events, how to turn audio capture off, how to flag and resolve scores, and how to review scores and transfer assessments back to Central. Then, the primary focus will be on how to access and review scores in Central, and export and archive data when needed.

    This session is not designed to provide an in-depth tutorial on all of the unique aspects of individual subtests/measures, but rather to orient you to many of the common tools and processes that you will need to know to efficiently use Q-interactive to assess your clients. Information concerning specific measures/subtests is provided in the available support videos and other scheduled webinars.

  • Working Memory Training and Evidence-Based Interventions for ADHD

    Presenter: Peter C Entwistle, PhD, Charles Shinaver, PhD

    Topic(s):

    View Past Webinars

    While this webinar will spend approximately half of the hour on Cogmed as an evidence-based intervention for ADHD it will consider other options as well. However, as is well known by clinicians, researchers and educators there is no way to do an exhaustive review of evidence-based interventions of ADHD in 1 hour or less, let alone 30 minutes or less. What we will be able to provide is some data for your consideration of the relative strengths and weaknesses of the existing evidence thus far. Some time will be spent considering the impact of medication, Cogmed and other innovative approaches to managing ADHD. We consider this topic worthy of several hours of webinars and as such while we expect we may open up more questions than answers we thought this is useful to provide a forum for consideration of this topic.

    The ability to use one’s communication and language system as a tool is an essential aspect of school-age language competence. Students must be able to pay the toll at the “Metalinguistic Bridge” or risk being left behind. This program will provide a strong background on metalinguistic ability including (1) metalinguistic awareness, (2) stages of development, (3) performance difficulties and needs, and (4) strategies for improving metalinguistic skills and strategies. The seminar will conclude with an interesting case study example that utilizes effective classroom-based assessment and the CELF-5 Test of Metalinguistics (Wiig and Secord, 2014) to guide the intervention planning process. Participants who attend this program will leave with new perspectives on clinical and educational assessment as well as with practical strategies they can put to use right away. Join us for a truly engaging experience.

  • Cogmed Is Now Easier To Do In Schools

    Presenter: Peter C Entwistle, Ph.D. & Charles Shinaver, Ph.D.

    Topic(s):

    View Past Webinars

    Cogmed provides a distinctive amount and quality of empirical evidence for its effectiveness with over 75 peer reviewed published studies, but this training method is now easier to implement in schools. In the last couple of years some large scale school implementations of Cogmed have allowed our staff to develop a number of features to make it work well in schools. Among those features are the variable protocol (shorter training sessions and fewer days a week of training), fidelity features, built-in generalization measures and Trends reporting which provides schools with the data needed to manage the large scale implantation of the program.

    Reporting for the district, school, class, and individual student level is now available. Reports include measures of compliance, motivation, and validity. Additionally the Cogmed progress indicator gives schools a measure of generalization to non-trained tasks in the areas of working memory, following instructions and math fluency. The variable protocol allows children to do Cogmed for 25 or 35 minutes a day 3, 4 or 5 days a week. Now Cogmed can fit into school schedules and be managed effectively and efficiently. Attend this webinar to get a grasp of these important changes.
