    Presenter: James Henke, Anne-Marie Kimbell, PhD

    Topic(s):

    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.

  • MMPI-2-RF: Medical Practice Briefing

    Presenter: MMPI expert, Yossef S. Ben-Porath, PhD

    Topic(s):

    View Past Webinars

    This webinar presentation focus is on the MMPI-2-RF use in the Medical Practice.

    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. In medical settings, the test can be used to help:

    • Assess major symptoms of psychopathology, personality characteristics, and behavioral proclivities.
    • Assess medical patients and design effective treatment strategies, including chronic pain management.
    • Inform pre-surgical evaluations of bariatric surgery, spine surgery, organ transplant, and other surgical candidates.

    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

  • Advanced Interpretation of the WISC-V

    Presenter: Amy Gabel, PhD

    Topic(s):

    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.

    This session is designed will provide essential information to practitioners as they familiarize themselves with the Wechsler intelligence Scale for Children – Fifth Edition (WISC-V). The focus of the session will be to take a deeper dive into how the revisions to the Scale better inform clinicians, 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, and have attended one of the live or recorded introductory sessions. During the presentation, participants will gain practical information to help them in using the WISC-V as part of a comprehensive evaluation. Particular emphasis will be placed on the new components of the WISC-V, such as new subtests, index, and ancillary scores.

    Digital or Paper- You Now Have a Choice!

    This session is applicable whether you choose to use WISC-V in traditional paper and pencil format or on Q-interactive. If you are looking for a more detailed description of Q-interactive and WISC-V, we encourage you to attend a recorded session regarding the WISC-V on Q-interactive, or a Q-interactive Overview webinar.

  • Introducing the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children Fifth Edition Integrated (WISC-V Integrated)

    Presenter: Gloria Maccow, PhD

    Topic(s):

    View Past Webinars

    The Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children–Fifth Edition Integrated (WISC–V Integrated) is an individually administered clinical instrument designed to assess the cognitive ability and problem-solving processes of children aged 6 years 0 months through 16 years 11 months. The WISC-V Integrated will be published in 2015. The instrument was designed to merge the clinical utility and features of the WISC-V with standardized measures, included on the WISC-V Integrated, to capture an examinee’s problem-solving approach and cognitive processes. The WISC-V Integrated reflects the importance of a process-oriented approach to assessment which requires quantitatively derived scores and emphasizes qualitative interpretation of test performance.

    This one-hour webinar will describe the components and clinical utility of the WISC-V Integrated. As a result of the session, participants will be able to (1) describe the subtests from the WISC-V Integrated; and (2) describe how performance on the WISC-V Integrated subtests can be used to understand an examinee’s cognitive processes, problem-solving strategies, and other test behaviors.

    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 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.
