Lowest used price: $70.42
List price: $75.00
Author: Dawn P. Flanagan

The Cross-Battery Assessment Software System (X-BASS) 2.0 allows school psychologists and other assessment professionals access to efficient, expert analysis of cross-battery assessment findings.  It integrates the Cross-Battery Assessment Data Management and Interpretive Assistant, Pattern of Strengths and Weaknesses Analyzer, and Culture-Language Interpretive Matrix into a single program, covering the latest revisions of major batteries, including the new WISC®-V, WJ IV®, KTEA(tm)-3, ChAMP, UNIT-2, RIAS-2, FAR, FAM, WISC®-V Integrated, WJV-IV ECAD, CELF®-5, CTOPP-2, CAS2, and over 125 psychological batteries and 1,000 subtests, all classified according to CHC theory. Preprogrammed formulas conduct the analyses and display the results within the context of CHC theory, and allow you to customize the parameters to answer specific questions. Compatible with Windows and Mac OS X, the internal database, single-instance data entry, automatic and integrated summary graphing, guided PSW analysis, and much more make X-BASS an essential one-stop within-battery and Cross-Battery Assessment solution.

The Cross-Battery Assessment approach allows you to measure reliably a wider or more selective, in-depth range of cognitive abilities and processes and academic achievement than any single battery can measure. It provides the theoretical and psychometric foundation that permits accurate derivation of meaning from test scores, in full alignment with the most recent versions of the major batteries.

  • Interpret and present cross-battery assessment findings efficiently and accurately
  • Target analysis to answer specific questions for SLD evaluations
  • Analyze empirical cognitive/academic relationships beyond relative magnitude of test scores
  • Customize referral-relevant batteries by selecting from the X-BASS database of hundreds of cognitive, achievement, neuropsychological, and speech-language subtests

The Cross-Battery Assessment Software System (X-BASS) 2.0 gives you the accurate analysis you need, with the flexibility you want. 2.0 updates include:

Updated with 7 major new batteries, 80+ new subtests bringing X-BASS fully up to date with existing and popular tests in use today and provides greater functionality with a wider range of tests than ever before. Now includes Child and Adolescent Memory Profile (ChAMP),Universal Nonverbal Intelligence Test-Second Edition (UNIT-2), Reynolds Intellectual Assessment Scales-Second Edition (RIAS-2),Feifer Assessment of Reading (FAR), Feifer Assessment of Math (FAM), Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children-Fifth Edition; Integrated (WISC-V Integrated), and Woodcock-Johnson IV Early Cognitive and Academic Development (WJ IV ECAD)

 New clinical clusters on the WISC-V tab provide extended assessment capabilities so evaluators can examine a wider and more in depth range of cognitive constructs than are measured by the primary subtests and indexes on the WISC-V. These clusters provide the practitioner with greater flexibility in WISC-V use and interpretation.

Interpretive Summary Report tab performs an automatic analysis to determine the best global ability score for individuals who are English learners as well as those up are referred for SLD or ID evaluations. The summary report includes score tables, interpretive statements, and recommendations for follow up assessment. The report may be printed for easy inclusion with any other standard report.

Now runs in three modes providing different levels of help and guidance from "Beginner," to "Intermediate," to "Advanced." The Beginner mode provides guidance and assistance via pop-up messages.   For users with more experience, the "Intermediate" mode suppresses most messages and displays only the typical informational, confirmational, and critical messages (those requiring user input to continue). "Advanced" mode suppresses nearly all messages and will only display those that require user input to continue program operation, pertain to interpretation of the PSW analysis, or are necessary to prevent accidental data deletion. 

More help.  Each tab now includes buttons for "Tab Help" and "Next Step," including step-by-step instruction on carrying out the activities to complete each tab. The "Next Step" button directs users to the logical next step and process for moving to the next task.

List price: $35.00
Author: Shawn Christopher Shea
Brand: Brand: Mental Health Presses

Penned with a compelling elegance and charm, the "Practical Art of Suicide Assessment" is brimming with clinical wisdom, enlightening case illustrations and a vibrant sense of compassion. Viewed as one of the classics in the field of mental health, and acclaimed by both beginning students and experienced clinicians alike, it describes in a step-by-step fashion exactly how to make a sound suicide assessment. Dr. Shea explores the causes of suicidal ideation as well as the nuances of risk actors, protective factors, and the complexities of the clinical formulation of risk. He skillfully integrates all of this information for the reader by using real-life case examples and addressing daunting clinical challenges head-on such as assessing suicide risk with clients coping with borderline personality disorder or psychotic process. In addition Dr. Shea brings to life the highly acclaimed interview strategy for uncovering suicidal ideation, planning, behavior and intent the "Chronological Assessment of Suicide Events (CASE Approach)". Dr. Shea, the originator of the CASE Approach, shows exactly how to creatively and flexibly use its innovative interviewing techniques to match the unique needs of every client. The CASE Approach has been described by the noted suicidologist and past President of the American Association of Suicidology, David Jobes, Ph.D. as follows: "The CASE Approach moves the clinician almost imperceptibly into the secret internal workings of the mind and soul of the patient tormented by suicidal ideation. I believe that the CASE Approach is a remarkable conceptual and clinical contribution to the field of suicidology. It should be taught to any front-line clinician. It has the power to meaningfully save lives." Dr. Shea concludes the book with a no-nonsense approach to documenting a suicide risk assessment that can both help to save a client's life as well as keep the clinician out of court. Respected across the globe, the Practical Art of Suicide Assessment has been translated into languages as diverse as French and Japanese.

Character Strengths and Virtues: A Handbook and Classification

Character Strengths and Virtues: A Handbook and Classification Lowest new price: $74.99
Lowest used price: $53.05
List price: $94.00
Author: Christopher Peterson
Brand: Christopher Peterson Martin E P Seligman

"Character" has become a front-and-center topic in contemporary discourse, but this term does not have a fixed meaning. Character may be simply defined by what someone does not do, but a more active and thorough definition is necessary, one that addresses certain vital questions. Is character a singular characteristic of an individual, or is it composed of different aspects? Does character--however we define it--exist in degrees, or is it simply something one happens to have? How can character be developed? Can it be learned? Relatedly, can it be taught, and who might be the most effective teacher? What roles are played by family, schools, the media, religion, and the larger culture? This groundbreaking handbook of character strengths and virtues is the first progress report from a prestigious group of researchers who have undertaken the systematic classification and measurement of widely valued positive traits. They approach good character in terms of separate strengths-authenticity, persistence, kindness, gratitude, hope, humor, and so on-each of which exists in degrees.

Character Strengths and Virtues classifies twenty-four specific strengths under six broad virtues that consistently emerge across history and culture: wisdom, courage, humanity, justice, temperance, and transcendence. Each strength is thoroughly examined in its own chapter, with special attention to its meaning, explanation, measurement, causes, correlates, consequences, and development across the life span, as well as to strategies for its deliberate cultivation. This book demands the attention of anyone interested in psychology and what it can teach about the good life.
