    • 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.

    View Past Webinars

    This webinar will provide an introduction to the Beta–4, a non-verbal measure of cognitive ability in adults. Beta–4 comes from a long line of nonverbal assessments that have been used and trusted by psychologists and counselors since 1934.

The Beta–4 is tailored toward those suspected to be low-functioning and low-skilled.

A report of the scores Sam earned will be distributed prior to the session so that participants can come prepared to focus on making sense of the data, rather than simply a review of the results.

    Topic(s):

    View Past Webinars

    The BASC-3 Flex Monitor is a revolutionary new tool that will allow psychologists to develop and apply unique self-report and behavior rating scales with known psychometric qualities that are then normed against the BASC-3 nationally standardization sample. Psychologists may design such forms for unique cases for applications in following the progress of any given case (N=1) or may develop a specialized self-report or behavior rating scale for parents and/or teachers that is applicable to children and youth in specific programs within a school or clinic setting, designed specifically to match the treatment goals of the program. The current webinar will focus on the development and clinical applications of this unique technology as a means to improve treatment outcome as well as improve programs for intervention with individuals with emotional and behavioral disorders. Specific instruction regarding the development of individualized forms by the clinician will be provided along with evaluating reliable change and the sharing of forms across clinicians within a common account system.

  • Why Some Students Struggle to Learn: Assessing Memory and Learning

    Presenter: Gloria Maccow, PhD

    Topic(s):

    View Past Webinars

    Why do some students seem to remember information immediately after they hear it, but not the following day? And why do some students struggle with mental math? To learn and remember information, individuals begin by encoding the information. They hold the information in short-term memory until a permanent memory trace is created in long-term memory. To show that they have acquired skills and knowledge, they retrieve information from long-term storage.

    This webinar will describe the assessment process that will allow us to understand how a weakness in memory can affect a student’s learning. At the end of the webinar, participants will be able to describe

    1. the process of learning and remembering;
    2. theories of memory and learning; and
    3. commonly used assessments of memory and learning.
