  • Building Relationships

    Presenter: Judy Jablon, MS

    As educators, we know that relationships are the foundation for all good teaching. We have the most impact on young learners when relationships are rooted in a sense of wonder and a genuine curiosity. We learn who children are, what they know, how they think, how their thoughts and ideas fit together by asking questions and being keen observers. In this one-hour webinar, Work Sampling System author Judy Jablon will discuss how assessment can support you in asking questions about children, building stronger relationships with them and in turn, support all children in their success, both in the classroom and beyond.

  • MMPI-2-RF: Basic Overview

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

    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 http://www.pearsonclinical.com/mmpiworkshops

  • MMPI-2-RF: Police and Law Enforcement

    Presenter: Dave Corey, Ph.D., ABPP

    The MMPI-2-RF is used in various pre-employment settings to assist employers in identifying candidates who possess personality and behavioral characteristics that may be inconsistent with the demands of a position, particularly in public safety occupations. In this webinar, internationally recognized police psychologist David M. Corey discusses the use of the MMPI-2-RF in police and law enforcement candidate evaluations. Dr. Corey will discuss the use of the MMPI-2-RF in empirically grounded evaluations with a special emphasis on test interpretation guidelines that will assist you in accurately and efficiently evaluating police and law enforcement candidates.

    Prior to attending this webinar, it is recommended that you have attended the MMPI-2-RF: Basic Overview webinar presented by Dr. Yossef Ben-Porath or that you have an understanding of the empirical foundations of the MMPI-2-RF.

  • Learning Disability Identification: Linking Assessment to Intervention

    Presenter: Jennifer Mascolo, PsyD

    This webinar will present an alternative research-based operational definition of specific learning disability (SLD) that is consistent with the third option, or the pattern of strengths and weaknesses (PSW) approach, included in the federal regulations. Selected subtests from the WISC-V, WIAT-III, KTEA-3, and CELF-5 will be used to demonstrate how to organize assessments to address referral concerns.

  • Advanced Interpretation of the WISC-V

    Presenter: Gloria Maccow, PhD

    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.

  • Observing During Interactions

    Presenter: Judy Jablon, MS

    Research tells us that the child is most open to learning during moments of teacher-child interaction. These are the moments where the decisions about instruction can be shaped to have the greatest impact on the child’s learning. Amidst the busy-ness of classrooms and programs, quieting one’s mind to really stop and listen to a child’s agenda can be challenging. In this one-hour webinar, Work Sampling System author Judy Jablon will discuss how the Powerful Interactions model can help to integrate assessment and interactions.

  • Making Meaning with The Work Sampling System

    Presenter: Judy Jablon, MS

    Becoming keen observers of children is an important step in effectively scaffolding children’s learning. When teachers have a deep understanding of child development and learning across multiple domains, they can make more easily make meaning of their observations. They tune into a child’s agenda to make on the spot decisions about how to extend learning that fits the child and the situation.  In this one-hour webinar, Work Sampling System author Judy Jablon will discuss how The Work Sampling System helps educators to be fluent in children’s development and learning across domains and how this fluency supports the essential step of making meaning and scaffolding learning effectively. She will highlight how Work Sampling offers teachers a common language for talking with colleagues about teaching and learning so that together they can share strategies for effective supporting all learners.
