  • Language Assessment within the SLD Identification Framework

    Presenter: Elizabeth Wiig, PhD

    This webinar will focus on interactions between measures of academic achievement (KTEA-3), cognitive ability (WISC-V), and language and communication skills (CELF-5). The presenter will first identify overlapping areas of assessment across the three assessments. Overviews of the areas evaluated by KTEA-3 and WISC-V will then be presented. The areas evaluated by CELF-5 are then presented and commonalities with KTEA-3 and WISC-V measures discussed. The potential contribution of CELF-5 results for developing a comprehensive profile of a student’s strengths and weaknesses will be discussed with reference to an existing SLD case.

  • MMPI-2-RF: Basic Overview

    Presenter: Yossef S. Ben-Porath

    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.

  • Adding Positive Psychology and the Quality of Life Inventory to Your Practice

    Presenter: Michael B. Frisch, PhD

    Presented by QOLI® author, Michael B. Frisch, Ph.D. "Quality of Life Therapy (which uses the Quality of Life Inventory) is an approach to positive psychology that is state-of-the-art, evidence-based, empirically validated, and the number one guide for clinical psychologists and other practitioners interested in learning about the practice of positive psychology."--Ed Diener, co-leader of the positive psychology movement and Distinguished Professor of Psychology at the University of Illinois.

    This webinar presentation will address:

    • Quick and easy ways to add Positive Psychology to your clinical and coaching practice as recommended by Marty Seligman and Ed Diener.
    • How the brief measure of positive mental health, the Quality of Life Inventory (QOLI), can help make your assessments more complete.
    • How to quickly access research-supported positive psychology assessments and positive psychology interventions.
    • 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, substance abuse, gerontology, career counseling, OT, behavioral medicine, and quality assurance.

  • Preparing for WISC-V: Essential Information

    Presenter: Amy Dilworth Gabel, PhD

    This session is designed to go somewhat beyond the overviews of the Wechsler intelligence Scale for Children – Fifth Edition (WISC-V) that have been previously presented. The focus of this 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 gain information to help them in using the WISC-V to understand student needs. 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

  • Why Cogmed matters for Traumatic Brain Injury

    This webinar is focused upon a burgeoning area of research with Cogmed-specific studies. However, first the broader picture of TBI will be considered which includes how working memory capacity has been found to related to survival, community integration, quality of life, reduced depression and to correlate with executive functions (EF). EF have been found to relate to obtaining competitive employment, occupational outcomes and social integration. Then studies in which stroke, acquired brain injury and traumatic brain injury patients completed Cogmed and the effects the program had on them. Finally, we will consider for adults what factors are related to return to work successfully. For children we will consider how TBI’s effects on working memory affect their return to learn in school.
