  • Assessing Clients with Q-interactive and Archiving and Exporting Assessment Batteries: Session II

    Presenter: James Henke

    Topic(s):

    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: Basic Overview

    Presenter: Martin Sellbom, PhD

    Topic(s):

    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. 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.

    Continuing Education (CE) credits are not offered for this webinar. For information on upcoming MMPI-2-RF CE workshops, visit

  • Introducing the Beta-4

    Presenter: Anne-Marie Kimbell, PhD

    Topic(s):

    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. It is very simple to administer and score with minimal training in a one-on-one or proctored group setting with either English or Spanish instructions, and does not require the test-taker to read. The Beta–4 is tailored toward those suspected to be low-functioning and low-skilled.

  • Why doesn’t Sam complete assignments in a timely manner? More importantly, what can we do about it? Case Study with WISC-V

    Presenter: Amy Dilworth Gabel, Ph.D., NCSP

    Topic(s):

    Join us for this case-study based webinar to see how the WISC-V is used as part of a comprehensive assessment to understand why “Sam” (aka “Sample”) experiences difficulty completing class assignments and homework in a timely manner. During the session, we’ll look at Sam’s earned scores on the WISC-V and other measures and discuss how to interpret these findings in context. 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.

  • BASC-3 FLEX Monitor

    Presenter: Cecil Reynolds, PhD

    Topic(s):

    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):

    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.
