    Lindsey Harik, Ph.D., discusses the role of the neuropsychologist in managing cases of Anti-NMDA receptor encephalitis (ARE). ARE is a rare neurological disorder characterized by inflammation of the brain caused by autoimmunity or infection and is characterized by severe psychiatric and behavioral aberrations in addition to cognitive and neurological sequelae. ARE has been a difficult to define and diagnose disorder due to insidious and nonspecific (e.g., irritability, low mood, short-term memory complaints) onset, as well as inconsistent presence of known biomarkers. It can affect both men and women, however it is more common among women.  It primarily affects the young, including children and young adults. The degree of cognitive and behavioral impairment is often influenced by the expediency of accurate diagnosis and treatment.  Neuropsychological recommendations for acutely and chronically affected individuals with ARE are provided.

    Rehabilitation Psychologist Shinakee Gumber, PhD, ABPP discusses the various challenges in the rehabilitation of people with moderate to severe brain injuries, including their complex neuropsychological presentations (e.g. anosognosia, severe memory deficits, fatigability). The facets of holistic neurorehabilitation that address these unique challenges are discussed. A multifaceted, hierarchical rehabilitation approach and its benefits are outlined.

    Psychologist Ben Lovett, Ph.D., discusses best practices for providing testing accommodations for individuals with disabilities.  People with disabilities are often given tests with modified administration conditions (e.g., additional time, a private testing location). Psychologists are often asked to make recommendations regarding accommodations on tests in a variety of contexts (e.g., classroom tests, admissions tests, certification tests). This webinar discusses the legal framework for determining eligibility for accommodations as well as research-based principles for making accommodations recommendations for children and adults with various disabilities. Examples focus on disabilities that psychologists diagnose (learning, cognitive, and psychiatric disabilities).

    This course is offered as a self-study for 1.0 CE credit. Completion of an evaluation and post-test are required in order to receive credit.

    Unprecedented media coverage of concussion in sport has led to concerns regarding the potential negative effects of participation in contact sports. In this self-study, William Barr, Ph.D., ABPP, provides an updated review of chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), a condition alleged to be associated with the pathological effects of exposure to repetitive head impacts obtained in contact sports and in other contexts. The lecture demonstrates that, despite the extensive media coverage, scientific findings from the study of CTE remain preliminary with little definitive information known about its epidemiology, cause, or the specificity of its clinical and neuropathological characteristics. The lecture focuses on the role that neuropsychology continues to play in advancing our knowledge of this controversial topic. The influence of social media on the public’s (mis)perception of CTE is also discussed.
