    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.

  • From Research to Practice: Instructional Strategies for Written Expression Disorders

    Presenter: Amy Gabel, PhD

    View Past Webinars

    Many children will learn with few difficulties, but there are many who learn differently, or experience challenges that impact the breadth and depth of their skill development. Our experiences as educators, clinicians, and parents make us keenly aware of the impact that individual differences can have on teaching and learning. This session is designed to provide an extension on a prior webinar that focused primarily on the research related to the cognitive processes related to written expression.

    In this session, we will focus on providing more information concerning instructional strategies related to the key developmental processes associated with writing, and the barriers that can occur in the case of writing disorders. The session will include information concerning related to instructional strategies to address hot topics such as handwriting, subtypes of writing disorders, and other general manifestations of writing problems across the lifespan.

    At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to: a) identify at least 3 neurodevelopmental processes related to written expression; b) describe subtypes of written expression disorders; c) list at least 3 possible accommodations or teaching strategies for certain types of writing difficulties.
