Today (in about 30 minutes from my writing this) I’m going to be presenting to Division 12 (Clinical Psychology)’s section for Students and Early Career Professions (formally called Section Ten). I’m super excited to help demystify the internship process and help applicants maximize their success and desired career trajectories. I also want to make sureContinue reading “Webinar on Internship: Get the Materials here!”

Assessment competency: What is it, who has it, and how do we move the needle for masters level providers in psych science?
Over the last few years I’ve started to delve into competency research, particularly around psychological assessment. In brief, research over the last two decades has clearly detailed that students do not have a sufficient amount of training in psychological assessment to effectively and efficiently conduct the higher-order conceptual tasks associated with diagnosis and behavior predictionContinue reading “Assessment competency: What is it, who has it, and how do we move the needle for masters level providers in psych science?”
Clinical Judgement in Suicide Assessment: Using outpatient Veteran intakes to test the viability of high impact decision making
Suicide is a low frequency, high impact behavior. By extension, assessment of suicide is a critical component to effective mental health intervention. Research on suicide has expanded (see Bryan’s  Rethinking Suicide: Why Prevention Fails, and how We Can Do Better, for instance) to suggest that future prediction of risk is also more complicated thatContinue reading “Clinical Judgement in Suicide Assessment: Using outpatient Veteran intakes to test the viability of high impact decision making”
Sharing Research: Internship Application Process and Outcomes
I’m excited that the work out of the PATS lab is reaching the folks who can use it. Earlier this year, I published an article looking at internship site competitiveness for health service psychology graduate students from the perspective of Directors of Training. Next month, I will be presenting to the section for students andContinue reading “Sharing Research: Internship Application Process and Outcomes”
The Personality Assessment Inventory’s Cognitive Bias Scale: Validation of the Scale of Scale Formats in a Military Sample
The Cognitive Bias Scale (CBS) was recently developed for the PAI (see Gaasedelen et al., 2019). The rationale behind the CBS’s development was that the PAI lacked any over-reporting indicators which assessed cognitive performance, and other personality inventories (i.e., MMPI-2-RF and MMPI-3) had such measures (e.g., Response Bias Scale [RBS]). Using similar methodology that wasContinue reading “The Personality Assessment Inventory’s Cognitive Bias Scale: Validation of the Scale of Scale Formats in a Military Sample”

Service Era – Does it Matter for Assessment?
New Paper Alert! Service era is a huge part of how military/Veterans identify themselves, and it varies during their wartime and homecoming experiences. When it comes to psychological assessment, the question is do these variations in experience become important considerations to ensure culturally competent and responsible assessment practices. This has been investigated a little, butContinue reading “Service Era – Does it Matter for Assessment?”
Emma (PATS lab undergrad lab RA) presented on the MMPI-3’s EAT scale at her first national conference!
Emma did such a fantastic job during her presentation. The blitz talk was 3 minutes and she was presenting to the most knowledgeable group of individuals about psychological assessment and the MMPI specifically that I can imagine being assembled. This high quality of a talk is evidence of not only how great a student EmmaContinue reading “Emma (PATS lab undergrad lab RA) presented on the MMPI-3’s EAT scale at her first national conference!”

Graduation Weekend for the PATS lab
WOW! I can’t believe so many of the awesome undergrads are leaving the lab all at once (Kassidy, Brittany, Dani, and Will.. and Liz Morger left us in December). We had such a huge group for the last two years and they all helped the lab feel like a little family. Now, suddenly, HALF areContinue reading “Graduation Weekend for the PATS lab”
