    This webinar presentation provides a brief overview of the rationale for and methods used to develop the MMPI-A-RF, and the various materials available to score and interpret the test. The MMPI-A-RF features 48 empirically validated scales and takes only 25-30 minutes to administer. The test is designed to aid clinicians in identifying a broad array of mental disorders among adolescents in clinical, educational, forensic, and medical settings. The MMPI-A-RF is also designed to measure treatment progress when administered across varying points in the treatment process.

    Despite the great need for proper bilingual assessments, the truth is that there are simply not enough properly trained bilingual assessors to meet all the services needed. When a bilingual assessor is unavailable, some assessors seek out the help of bilingual interpreters. Asking a bilingual staff member down the hall is not enough. This presentation will look at how to properly prepare an interpreter in order to make sure that your assessment results are valid and reliable.

    This webinar is part of our Expand Your Practice webinar series. These webinars will focus on different ways you can use assessments to offer additional services to your clients.

    Webinar takes place in Eastern Time (ET)

    Presenter:  David McCord, Phd

    The MMPI-2-RF was published in 2008 and over the last ten years approximately half of adult assessments have transitioned to the updated version of the inventory. This webinar is intended for practitioners who have yet to adopt the MMPI-2-RF who wish to know the benefits of doing so and how this might affect their practice.

    Join Dr. David McCord of Western Carolina University as he discusses how to remain current in assessment by transitioning to the MMPI-2-RF and how the test’s transparent, straightforward interpretation leads to a better understanding of test results. Dr. McCord will offer illustrative case comparisons that demonstrate how using the MMPI-2-RF can enhance clinical effectiveness and efficiency.

    Presenter: Stephen N. Elliott, Ph.D.

    Student resiliency is a characteristic necessary for the development of a healthy, adaptable outlook. This attribute enables children to emerge from challenging experiences with a positive sense of themselves and their futures. This session focuses on providing educators strategies and practices needed to assess and support the development of specific social emotional learning (SEL) skills that promote resiliency in children and youth. The featured SEL skills in this session are asking for help, getting along with others, expressing feelings, being positive about the future, and saying when there is a problem. The steps and resources from the SSIS SEL Classwide Intervention Program (CIP) needed for teaching and evaluating these skills will be illustrated.

    We're all familiar with the use of measures of cognitive ability (e.g. WISCⓇ-V) and academic achievement (e.g. WIAT-III and KTEA-3) when evaluating children and adolescents for learning disabilities and/or ADHD. However, we can learn so much more about our clients’ strengths and weaknesses - information that leads directly to effective recommendations for intervention - by adding measures of cognitive processes such as attention, memory, executive functions, and language to our psychoeducational evaluations.

    This webinar will introduce you to several neuropsychological measures that are easy to learn and administer, and will help make your evaluations more useful to clients, families, and educators.

    Presenter:  Martin Sellbom, PhD

    This advanced forensic webinar is intended for practitioners who wish to know more about the benefits of using the MMPI-2-RF in forensic settings. Join Dr. Martin Sellbom of the University of Otago (New Zealand) as he discusses how to remain current in assessment by adopting the MMPI-2-RF in your forensic practice and how the test’s transparent, straightforward interpretation leads to a better understanding of test results vis-à-vis the MMPI-2. Dr. Sellbom will cover some general considerations for using the test in forensic psychology practice, and offer illustrative case comparisons that demonstrate how using the MMPI-2-RF can enhance clinical effectiveness and efficiency.
