  • MMPI-2-RF: Basic Overview

    Presenter: Dustin B. Wygant, 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.

  • Cognitive and Linguistic Assessment for SLPs and OTs

    Presenter: Anne-Marie Kimbell, Ph.D., MSEd., Shelley Hughes, Occupational Therapist and Tina Eichstadt, MS CCC-SLP

    Topic(s):

    Overview

    Increasingly, interprofessional practice (IPP) between SLPs and OTs in rehabilitation settings requires greater collaboration and discussion of tool choices and decision-making points in time. A model of work from screening and diagnostic assessment to intervention and progress monitoring will be described in this session. Specific tools will be used as examples for this overall collaborative workflow to illustrate the connections between stages of work and professionals. SLPs and OTs can work together to select the appropriate tools for patients/clients throughout this workflow and interpret data clearly and accurately for communication with the larger healthcare system as well as patients and families.

    Learner Outcomes

    Based on the content of the webinar, participants will be able to:

    1. Describe the SAIM (Screen, Assess, Intervene, and Monitor) model.

  • Improving the Efficacy of SEL school-based Implementations: The SSIS SEL on Review360

    Presenter: Chris Huzinec, MS, Sydney Herndon

    Topic(s):

    The SSIS SEL is comprehensive Social Emotional Learning program that includes the components needed to Screen, Assess, Intervene, and Monitor students as they develop their SEL competencies. By aligning screening and assessment components with interventions, the SSIS SEL, educators can identify all students’ SEL needs, guide classroom intervention planning, and monitor both student progress and intervention effectiveness. To make these decision-making processes meaningful, the data collected through the SSIS SEL system needs to be available, accessible, and reported in a usable way.

    This presentation discusses how using the web-based platform Review360, facilitates the process of SSIS SEL administration and reporting in better support school based implementations. We discuss how Review360 can support using the SSIS SEL with larger groups of students by providing data in real time and by organizing, aggregating, and disaggregating student results at the school, grade, classroom, and individual student levels as well as by specific student groups (ethnicity, gender, at-risk….). We will also discuss how Review360 can be used in screening, progress monitoring, and evaluating outcomes as well as identifying students for more individualized support.

  • Use of the MMPI-2-RF in the Evaluation of Spine Surgery and Spinal Cord Stimulator Candidates

    Presenter: Andrew R. Block, PhD, ABPP

    Topic(s):

    The MMPI-2-RF is used in medical settings to assess patients and design effective treatment strategies based on personality and behavioral characteristics that may impact patient care and surgical outcomes. In this webinar, Dr. Block discusses the use of the MMPI-2-RF in pre-surgical evaluations of spine and spinal cord stimulator candidates. He will discuss the extensive clinical research base supporting use of the MMPI-2-RF in these high-risk interventions, and introduce the newest, empirically based MMPI-2-RF reports, the Spine Surgery Candidate Interpretive Report (Spine-CIR) and Spinal Cord Stimulator Candidate Interpretive Report (Stim-CIR), that will assist you in accurately and efficiently evaluating surgical candidates.

    Prior to registering for this webinar it is recommended that you have attended the MMPI-2-RF: Basic Overview webinar or have an understanding of the empirical foundations of the MMPI-2-RF.

  • Planning and Leading a Time-Efficient Universal SEL Program

    Presenter: Stephen N. Elliott, PhD

    Topic(s):

    Universal or school-wide programs to improve social emotional learning (SEL) of all students are increasing because of research evidence that indicates they can have a triple-positive impact on children’s school performance.
