  • Using the MBMD with Patients with Chronic Pain

    Presenter: Mike Antoni (author), Anne-Marie Kimbell

    Pain is one of the most prevalent and one of the costliest health issues in North America, and approaches to treating pain cover a vast spectrum. Some of the most common treatments are simple bed rest, mild medications, acupuncture, physical therapy, injections, powerful opioid drugs, individual and group psychotherapy, and a variety of surgical procedures.

    Despite interventions, some patients fail to achieve pain relief. For these – the chronic pain patients – a downward spiral of pain, disability, despair, high healthcare utilization, and overall poor quality of life results in immense costs for both the individual and society. Professionals who work with chronic pain patients recognize that the pain experience involves more than the biological process through which the stimulation of nerves sends information to the brain about possible tissue damage. The patient’s unique constellation of genetics and prior experiences, as well as psychosocial assets and liabilities (e.g., personality factors, concurrent mental health status) form a cognitive and affective lens that affects how nerve stimulation is experienced, which in turn produces a bio-behavioral response.

  • Using the BASC-3 Student Self-Report of Personality for the identification of at-risk college students

    Presenter: Randy Kamphaus, Ph.D.

    The BASC-3 Student Self-Report of Personality - College Form (SRP College) is a practical and insightful tool for use in community college, college or university, or other individuals who serve clients between 18 and 25 years of age. The SRP College is useful for disability evaluations required for accessing campus services, youngsters transitioning in or out of post-secondary education, or community practitioners who need a thorough evaluation of the behavioral and emotional adjustment and adaptive skills of young adults. With the ease of use and user-friendliness typical of the BASC-3 system examiners are better able to have positive assessment experiences that produce a wide range of assessment information in a relatively brief period of time (30-45 minutes) including information about Depression, Attention Problems, Alcohol Use, School Adjustment, Resilience, Social Maladjustment, and many other important areas of functioning. Utility of the SRP College is supported by numerous reliability and validity students and clinical experience. This webinar cover all aspects of the SRP - uses, administration and scoring, reliability, validity, other research, and case studies.

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

    Presenter: Chris Huzinec, MS, Sydney Herndon

    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.

  • Adaptive Behavior Profiles in Autism Spectrum Disorders

    Presenter: Celine Saulnier, Ph.D.

    Deficits in adaptive behavior are, by definition, criteria for Intellectual Disability. Yet in autism, adaptive delays tend to be above and beyond what would be expected based on cognitive impairments, alone. This gap between cognition and adaptive behavior appears to widen with age and impedes functional independence into adulthood. Moreover, patterns of strengths and weaknesses within adaptive domains raise concerns about the use of composite scores that wash out significant differences. This presentation will outline these profiles of adaptive behavior and discuss the importance of assessing for and teaching adaptive skills from initial diagnosis of ASD throughout the lifespan. 

    Learning Objectives:

    1. Define adaptive behavior & differentiate adaptive behavior from cognition or ability
    2. Describe common profiles of adaptive functioning in ASD for individuals with and without cognitive impairment
    3. Identify effective treatment strategies for enhancing adaptive functioning

  • Cognitive Assessment of Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Students

    Presenter: Gloria Maccow, PhD, HSP-P

    The approximately 4.6 million culturally and linguistically diverse (CLD) students in US schools face a unique set of challenges. They must navigate everyday conversations, develop proficiency in the cognitive academic language that will enable them to understand curriculum content in English, and achieve the same academic standards that all students are expected to meet.

    To meet content and achievement standards, some CLD students require specialized instruction because of an identified disability. When cognitive ability is among the defining characteristics for a disability category, it is important to consider the non-cognitive factors that can affect the performance of CLD students on cognitive tests. This one-hour webinar will describe cultural and linguistic factors clinicians must consider when assessing cognitive abilities of CLD students. The presenter will use examples from work with young children, but the information shared during the presentation will be applicable to bilingual and multi-lingual individuals of all ages.

  • Using the Millon Behavioral Medicine Diagnostic (MBMD) in Bariatric Surgery

    Presenter: Michael H. Antoni, PhD

    Obesity affects about 78 million Americans, and about 24 million have morbid or severe obesity, placing them at major health risk. Bariatric surgery can enable patients to achieve significant weight loss as well as improvement in obesity-related conditions such as diabetes mellitus, hypertension, and sleep apnea. However, the effectiveness of bariatric surgery depends on many patient factors including demographic variables, co-morbid conditions (e.g, affective and psychiatric disorders), health behaviors, cognitive appraisals, coping strategies, and available resources.

    The Millon Behavioral Medicine Diagnostic (MBMD) helps assess psychosocial factors that may support or interfere with a patient’s course of medical treatment. This webinar will describe how the MBMD was developed and how its’ specialized Bariatric Report can be used as part of a comprehensive evaluation to identify patient assets and liabilities to tailor a treatment plan that will optimize post-operative outcomes.

  • Identifying Cognitive Strengths and Weaknesses: Using KABC-II NU

    Presenter: Gloria Maccow, PhD, HSP-P

    The Kaufman Assessment Battery for Children, Second Edition Normative Update (KABC™-II NU: 2018) maintains the strengths of the KABC-II while providing updated normative information that reflects the changing population of children in the United States. Clinicians who use the KABC-II know that the subtests were designed to minimize verbal instructions and responses to allow for a fair assessment of all examinees, including examinees from diverse linguistic and cultural backgrounds. Clinicians especially value the dual-theoretical foundation of the instrument – the Cattell-Horn Carroll (CHC) psychometric model of broad and narrow abilities, and Luria’s neuropsychological theory of processing.

    This webinar will review features of the KABC-II that support interpretation from two different but complementary perspectives, and that allow clinicians to identify cognitive strengths and weaknesses.

This gap between cognition and adaptive behavior appears to widen with age and impedes functional independence into adulthood. Moreover, patterns of strengths and weaknesses within adaptive domains raise concerns about the use of composite scores that wash out significant differences. This presentation will outline these profiles of adaptive behavior and discuss the importance of assessing for and teaching adaptive skills from initial diagnosis of ASD throughout the lifespan. 

    Learning Objectives:

    1. Define adaptive behavior & differentiate adaptive behavior from cognition or ability
    2. Describe common profiles of adaptive functioning in ASD for individuals with and without cognitive impairment
    3. Identify effective treatment strategies for enhancing adaptive functioning

  • Assessing Cognitive Abilities of ELLs Using WISC-V Spanish

    Presenter: Gloria Maccow, PhD & Jarett Lehner

    Clinicians who assess cognitive abilities of children from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds encounter unique challenges and complexities. In many cases, they need methods to tease out the impact of non-cognitive factors (e.g., acculturation, socioeconomic status, educational disadvantage, bilingualism) that may affect the child’s performance on cognitive tests.

    The Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children–Fifth Edition Spanish (WISC–V Spanish) is a culturally and linguistically valid test of cognitive ability for use with Spanish-speaking children ages 6 through 16 years. In addition to providing information on cognitive abilities including verbal comprehension, visual-spatial, fluid reasoning, working memory, and processing speed, the WISC–V Spanish offers language-environment adjusted scores for the verbal subtests and indexes. The WISC–V Spanish is available in digital format using Pearson’s Q-interactive platform, and in the traditional paper format.

    This session will describe the structure of the WISC–V Spanish, features of subtest administration, and interpretation of the language-environment adjusted scores. The session will include a live demonstration of the digital assessment platform.

    Presenter: Charles Shinaver, PhD, HSPP

    Pearson is a world leader in clinical assessments. While Pearson has offered assessments for clinical trials for some time we have expedited our processes. We intend to more clearly articulate them so you can move through the process of licensing and training raters more efficiently and effectively. We will also direct you to which of our staff members provide what functions. In several areas Pearson produces gold standard assessments including cognitive/ability, memory, neuropsychology, behavior, mental health, personality/psychopathology, achievement and speech/language. These tools have relevance in several therapeutic areas including neurology, CNS, psychiatry, diabetes, oncology, cardiovascular disease and gastroenterology among others. This webinar will remind you of which assessments have been used with which diseases. We will explain our rater qualifications and importantly elucidate various opportunities for rater training including onsite training, live webinars, recorded webinars, consultation, and PDFs. We will differentiate when you can buy our products “straight off the shelf”, when you need a license, and how you can find and confirm which tests are in which languages. Finally we will highlight a couple of crucial points, the difference between a general license and a master license agreement (MLA) and the benefits you derive from engaging in an MLA which can facilitate more trials more efficiently. Finally, even when you don’t have time to do an MLA we will explain how you can expedite the clinical trials process with us.

  • Implications of Depression on Medical Conditions

    Presenter: Anne-Marie Kimbell, PhD, Charles Shinaver, PhD

    Depression has been found to be comorbid with a variety of chronic medical conditions. We will briefly discuss several conditions including hypertension (HTN), Diabetes Mellitus (DM), coronary artery disease (CAD), congestive heart failure (CHF), stroke or cerebrovascular accident (CVA), chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD and end stage renal disease (ESRD) found to be associated with depression. We will also consider Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and patients seeking bariatric surgery. A critical possible implication of this comorbidity is the finding in one meta-analysis that depression along with various long term medical conditions predicted increased use of urgent and unscheduled care use while in another meta-analysis this was not the case. We will consider these findings. Finally, we will review the impact of depression upon functioning and caregivers.

  • Screening Communication Skills to Identify At-Risk Infants, Toddlers, and Preschoolers Using the PLS-5 Screening Tests

    Presenter: Adam Scheller, PhD

    From the time a child comes into the world, the ability to attend to, interact with, and communicate with others is key to learning about the world around them and forming key concepts that as a foundation for later academic learning and successful interactions with others. However, many studies indicate that a significant number of children do not successfully acquire the speech and language skills they need prior to beginning school. Identifying at-risk children early is crucial to providing early intervention services that help close the gap for children before they begin formal academic instruction.

    The Preschool Language Scales-5th Edition Screening Tests for Early Childhood Educators (PLS-5 Screening for Early Childhood Educators) is a quick speech and language screening that can be administered to children from birth through age 6 in 5-10 minutes. Results of the screening help identify at-risk children who may be appropriate for additional testing. This session will provide an overview of the English and Spanish editions of the screening tests and provide examples of the screening items, scoring, and next steps based on the screening results.

    This is "An overview of the new TEA-Ch2." The TEA-Ch is a test of children's attention, first developed in 1997, and it has recently been revised in the UK. We will review the administration, and background to the test, and explore the new features.  We will review the new sub-tests for children aged 5-7 years TEA-Ch2 J, and will explore the tests for ages 8 -15 years TEA-Ch2 A. We will review the standardization and norms, reliability, evidence of validity and special group studies. Attendees will learn how the test now covers a broader age range than the predecessor, and a much larger sample size. The scoring system will automatically generate scaled scores and index scores. A lot of the new test components are now conducted on the computer, but there are still paper and pencil tasks for children to complete. The computer presents auditory stimuli, test timing and automatic scores to enhance accuracy. Attendees will learn how it differs from the earlier version and other tests of attention in the market.

  • BASC-3 FLEX Monitor

    Presenter: Cecil Reynolds, PhD

    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.

  • Screening for Cognitive Impairment

    Presenter: Anne-Marie Kimbell, PhD

    At the same time the US population is aging at an unprecedented rate, the number of individuals with cognitive impairment is increasing rapidly. While cognitive health has been identified as a priority area for aging and public health agencies, the opportunity to evaluate symptoms of cognitive impairment is overlooked and the diagnosis of cognitive impairment is often missed. Although a definitive diagnosis of cognitive impairment necessitates a thorough evaluation of several cognitive domains and other patient factors, screening for cognitive impairment can be relatively quick and easy. This webinar will define cognitive impairment and several related terms, and discuss the importance and process of screening for cognitive impairment.

  • MMPI-2-RF: Use in Trauma and Stressor-Related Disorders

    Presenter: Paul A. Arbisi, Ph.D., ABAP, ABPP

    The MMPI-2-RF is frequently used as part of a comprehensive evaluation of trauma-exposed individuals to aid in diagnostic formulation and treatment planning. In this webinar, Dr. Arbisi will discuss the utility of the MMPI-2-RF in assessing trauma-related conditions and how dysfunctional emotional and behavioral response to stressors can be identified and characterized. Further, the utility of the MMPI-2-RF in identifying common trauma-related co-morbid conditions will be illustrated. Finally, specific MMPI-2-RF scales associated with compliance and trauma-specific interventions will be reviewed and implications for treatment planning discussed. 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.
