Bullying Behavior: SSIS Assessment and Intervention Strategies
Presenter: Stephen N. Elliott, PhD
Bullying behavior involves verbal and physical threats, related aggressive behaviors, and social exclusion. The SSIS provides a multi-rater assessment of high frequency bullying behaviors and related externalizing behaviors within the context of social skills and academic competence. This assessment leads to interventions that focus on improving a family of empathic and engagement behaviors that are incompatible with bullying.

MMPI-2-RF: Basic Overview
Presenter: Dustin B. Wygant, 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.
Assessing Personality Disorders with the MMPI-2-RF
Presenter: Martin Sellbom, PhD
The MMPI-2-RF scales measure a wide range of psychological constructs many of which are relevant to personality disorders. This webinar will cover an empirically validated mapping of MMPI-2-RF scales onto the 10 personality disorders listed in the DSM-5. Basic links between the MMPI-2-RF and the alternative model for personality disorders (in DSM-5 Section III) will be covered as well. The webinar will conclude with a brief case example.
Prior to attending this webinar it is recommended that you have attended the MMPI-2-RF: Basic Overview webinar or that you have an understanding of the empirical foundations of the MMPI-2-RF.
