    Presenters: Tina Eichstadt, Melissa Jakubowitz, Sue Ann Lee, Robin L. Alvares, and Nancy Castilleja

    To support your growing need for training in the area of remote service delivery, we invite you to join us as we host a panel of SLP experts engaged in telepractice every day. Each panelist will share key lessons learned from their own years of telepractice experience in assessment, intervention, and consultation. A moderated Q&A time will enable attendees to direct questions to each of the panel members. We hope you’ll join us for this interactive and engaging session!

    Learner Outcomes

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

    1. Summarize a decision-making process for determining if a potential client is appropriate for telepractice services

    2. Identify dose, dose frequency, and total intervention duration to optimize therapy effect in speech intervention delivered via telepractice

    3. Describe how implementation science may be used to improve treatment outcomes for students receiving services via telepractice

    Mental health support in a rapidly changing world

    As our world continues to rapidly change, so will the needs of its inhabitants. Lately, mental health has come from the shadow of the stigma that’s followed it up until now, and a real effort is being made to identify and help those in need of support.

    In this spirit, Pearson is proud to introduce our newest adult mental health webinar series, Grand Rounds. During these sessions we will conduct expert-led discussions on the importance of assessments, followed by thematic “grand rounds” featuring a mental health case study.

    This “new normal” of substance-use acceptance may benefit some but could pose a risk to others who have mental health concerns that compromise their coping abilities.This session will provide a platform to review some measures that can provide insight into those most at risk of having a poor capacity to regulate their coping behaviors when ingesting controlled substance. We will also discuss how this may impact your treatment focus.

    Presenters: Maggie Kjer, Ph.D. and Anise Flowers, Ph.D.

    The development of oral language skills and reading skills are highly intertwined. For many years, the process by which the brain learns to decode words has remained mysterious. With the advent of brain imaging technology and decades of research on reading, we know that both phonological processing and orthographic processing are essential for successful decoding. An understanding of phonemic awareness and how to evaluate advanced phonemic proficiency is critical for promoting the development of word level decoding skills. This session will highlight the research describing how word-level reading develops and what interventions can enhance decoding skills.

    Presenter: Dr. Yossef S. Ben-Porath, Ph.D.

    This webinar presentation provides a brief overview of the MMPI-3, the most up-to-date, newly-normed version of the MMPI. The test co-author will describe the rationale for, and methods used to develop the MMPI-3, as well as materials available to score and interpret the MMPI-3 in mental health, medical, forensic, and public safety settings. An author Q&A session will provide attendees with an opportunity to learn more about how the MMPI-3 builds on the legacy and strengths of the MMPI instruments to provide an empirically validated, psychometrically-sound standard for psychological assessment.

    Presenter: David M. Corey, PhD, ABPP

    Developed with new normative data and based on the most up-to-date police candidate outcome research, the MMPI-3 Police Candidate Interpretive Report (PCIR) helps psychologists identify high-risk candidates in an efficient, evidence-based, and legally defensible way. In this webinar, PCIR co-author and internationally recognized police psychologist David M. Corey discusses the use of the MMPI-3 in law enforcement candidate evaluations. Dr. Corey will address the use of the MMPI-3 in suitability evaluations with a special emphasis on test interpretation guidance that will assist you in integrating test results with findings from the clinical interview and other components of the assessment.

    Prior to attending this webinar, it is recommended that you have attended the MMPI-3 Overview webinar presented by Dr. Yossef Ben-Porath or that you have an understanding of the empirical foundations of the MMPI-3.

    With students returning to school via virtual, hybrid, and eventually face-to-face instruction, educators are facing an enormous challenge in identifying student need as well as providing evidenced-based interventions. It is more essential than ever to establish a Multi-Tiered System of Support to mitigate the multi-tiered levels of challenges experienced by all students, as well as to provide educators an effective framework for teaching and learning success. This MTSS webinar series will include 4 blocks of learning opportunities over the 2020-2021 school year. Each session is intended to help facilitate the development of a Multi-Tiered problem-solving model for student behaviour, as well as an implementation plan to increase fidelity.
