    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.

    • 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.

  • Understanding cognitive strengths and needs using the WISC-V

    Presenter: Amy Dilworth Gabel, PhD

    View Past Webinars

    When conducting a comprehensive evaluation, it is imperative that the cognitive assessment you use be reliable, valid, developmentally appropriate, and clinically useful. Whether you elect to use the WISC-V on paper, or on the Q-interactive system, we want to help you to understand the benefits of this new edition! This session will provide an overview of how the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children – Fifth Edition (WISC-V) has been revised to better inform parents and educators about how a student’s cognitive needs and strengths impact learning and other daily activities.

    Content is intended for those practitioners who routinely assess students between the ages of 6 and 16 for the provision of special services. The session will help participants understand how the theoretical underpinnings and content of the measure help them to understand student needs. Particular emphasis will be placed on the fresh aspects of the WISC-V, such as new subtests and index scores, interpretive approaches, and how to make the most out of using WISC-V on Q-interactive. While this session is not intended to provide specific instruction on using Q-interactive or the paper edition of the WISC-V, remember that there will be online training included with your purchase of WISC-V! This session is intended to help you make decisions between a paper and pencil administration and a digital administration, and to prepare you to use the instrument as part of a comprehensive assessment.
