Carla Betker - gave a detailed overview of "Goal Attainment Scaling" for use with individual counselling, social skills training, and life skills training. She will be doing a half-day session in Room 200 at the University of Manitoba next February 12, 2003 in the afternoon. The cost will be only $45.00. Phone 284-9761 for more information.
Neil Butchard - presented the "Psychology Outcomes Project." He gave the history, rational, and a sample field-trial document that is being tested now by a team of specific school psychologists. The current working template can be obtained from Neil for those who want to start using it on a limited basis. The document appears to be useful in tracking and reporting on all of a school psychologist's cases. The working template includes demographics, functional concerns, functional ratings, associated variables, concomitant factors, as well as year-end functional ratings.
Julia Krahn - gave a presentation about psychotic disorders and schizophrenia in particular. She discussed various prodromal symptoms to watch for, as well as the necessity for early intervention. She emphasized the hopefulness of full recovery if the disorder is identified early enough.
