OP\n\nA Refresher Workshop on Fundamental Statistics for Practicing Psyc
hologists\n\nPresented by Dr. Jonathan Siegel, Psychologist\n\nIn this t
hree hour content rich, informative, and entertaining workshop,Â we wil
l review the fundamentals of statistics for practicing psychologists.Â Â
It is a refresher course with a focus on practical applications.Â We
will use examples from tests such as the Test of Memory Malingering, DOT
Counting Test, Clinical Assessment of Depression, and Minnesota Multiph
asic Personality Inventory to illustrate those critical concepts in stat
istics that are applicable to all psychological testing.Â Â My focus is
on the concepts, with some good visuals, so that the math is more intui
tive.Â \n\nAs a result of this workshop, you will:\n\n* Have a better co
mmand and understanding of statistics as it applies to the field of cond
ucting psychological disability assessments.\n\n* Understand the relatio
nship between the binomial distribution and the Test of Memory Malingeri
ng.Â \n\n* Be provided the website for being able to calculate the exact
probability for any raw score on the Test of Memory Malingering (and an
y test using the binomial distribution). Â \n\n* Have a clear understand
ing of correlation coefficients (with visual representations) and their
relationship to standard deviations and variance (R squared).Â \n\n* Rev
isit the concepts of standardization, Z scores, Â T scores, as well as s
ensitivity, specificity, likelihood ratios, pre-test odds, post-test odd
s, and positive predictive values.Â \n\n* Feel more confident as a resul
t of this workshop to testify at trial regarding the strengths and limit
ations of the tests that you use.Â \n\nAnd yes, given that Jonathan has
been in Toastmasters over 18 years, he knows he has a responsibility to
make this fun as well!\n\nÂ \n\nABOUT THE PRESENTER\n\nJonathan Siegel g
raduated with his bachelors degree in physiological psychology from McGi
ll University Â in 1978, and with his doctoral degree in counseling psyc
hology from the University of Toronto in 1986.Â He published an article
on the topic of sensitivity and specificity in WP (Without Prejudice),
a trade journal for Ontario Insurance Adjustors, in March 2018.Â His gr
eatest personal achievement (outside of any family accomplishments) is w
inning first place in a humourous speech contest in Toastmasters in Nove
mber, 2017, out of 1000 contestants.Â His knowledge of statistics has n
ot helped him at all in Las Vegas.\n\nÂ \n\nÂ \n\nAFTERNOON WORKSHOP \n\
nCAPDA Casebook Learning Opportunities: An In-Depth Analysis of Psycholo
gical Disability Assessments\n\nPanel Presenters: Â Â Â CAPDA Board of
Directors\n\nFacilitator: Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Dr. John VanDeursen,
Ph.D., C.Psych. - Co-Chair, CAPDA Standards & Guidelines Committee\n\nÂ
\n\nThis half day workshop takes us past the abstracts of Ethics Codes,
Practice Guidelines and Professional Standards and moves to specific in-
depth analysis of problems we see in Psychological Disability Assessment
as we explore current clinical examples.\n\nWhen CAPDA was first formed
, we had opportunity to meet and talk and learn from each other.Â Those
conversations explored the similarities and differences in how we condu
cted and conceptualized our assessment practices.Â The thoughtful ratio
nale behind differing practice patterns was particularly enlightening.Â
Those conversations launched CAPDAâ€™s development of assessment guidel
ines.Â Since that time, many authoritative Ethics Codes, Practice Guide
lines and Professional Standards have developed that necessarily inform
our assessments.\n\nIn this workshop, we are going to look at a number o
f selected disability assessments completed in our community that raise
some questions about how they were completed as well as the resulting re
porting.Â This will include analysis of Insurer Examinations, Medical-L
egal Assessments and assessments completed by treatment and rehabilitati
on professionals.\n\nThrough the analysis of the selected disability ass
essments, we will consider such issues as differing professional opinion
s, sources of important/relevant data, interpretation of data, assessor
competencies and, limits to what should/can be opined.Â This includes w
hat to consider as findings and opinions in a specific case contrast sig
nificantly across examiners (and treatment/rehabilitation providers).Â
In particular, we will be challenged as we attempt to define the distinc
tion between what is supported as appropriate versus what is agreed to b
e inappropriate.\n\nSelected clinical examples include disability assess
ments of children and youth.Â As will be discussed, disability assessme
nt of children and youth often include additional complexities and chall
enges worthy of illustration.\n\nThis workshop should be of interest and
relevance both to assessors and treatment providers working either with
children and youth or with adults.Â Â \n\nÂ
