    Presenter: Pat Moran, PhD

    Violence is an issue that can have dramatic effects on communities and people’s lives, academic success, social settings, and work environments. While violent behaviour is often reactionary to one's environment, it can also be instrumentally used to achieved a desired outcome.

    This webinar is for professionals that may be asked to conduct violence risk evaluations in their practices/clinics, schools, EAP, and other settings and will present and discuss seven essential domains to evaluate when determining risk of violence. Participants will be introduced to the three-tiered dynamic process of calculating potential violence risk.

    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: Gloria Maccow, Ph.D.

    Clinicians who conduct comprehensive psycho-educational evaluations typically administer several standardized tests, each of which can consist of multiple subtests. The subtests are designed to measure a variety of constructs, and often share input, processing, and output demands. This webinar describes input and output demands of commonly used assessments of intelligence and achievement and shows how considering shared demands facilitates planning for remote administration of standardized tests.

    Presenter: Gloria Maccow, Ph.D

    Using multiple methods and collecting information from multiple sources are considered best practice when assessing infants and toddlers to identify developmental delay. The Bayley-4 includes tasks that enable you to collect information from observations of the child, elicited behaviours in structured tasks, and responses to caregiver questions asked during the test administration. The unique characteristics of early development and behaviours of infants and toddlers informed development of these interrelated assessment methods on the Bayley-4.

    In this intermediate-level session, the presenter will identify features of infant-toddler assessments that facilitate efficient administration, produce valid results, and allow clinicians to accurately describe the child’s developmental strengths and needs.
