APA division names award for PAR founder Bob Smith

PAR is proud to announce that our Executive Chairman and Founder, R. Bob Smith III, PhD, has been honored by the Society of Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology (SCCAP), a division of the American Psychological Association (APA). SCCAP has named a new award after Dr. Smith to recognize his efforts in supporting and producing evidence-based psychological assessment measures and procedures. In a further honor, the award will be presented annually at the APA national convention, beginning at this year’s convention, Aug. 8–11 in Chicago.

The Bob Smith III, PhD Psychological Assessment Award will be given each year to an individual, a group, or an organization that has advanced the field of scientific assessment in individual psychological functioning, mental health, learning, or social and intellectual development.

Another unique feature of this award is that recipients will have the opportunity to present a workshop at the APA national convention designed to instruct practitioners in the use of a cutting-edge psychological assessment product or procedure, or on a topic clinically relevant to psychological assessment.

To ensure the award will continue in perpetuity, SCCAP, industry colleagues, and friends of Dr. Smith have created and funded an endowment. If you would like to support the Bob Smith III, PhD Psychological Assessment Award and its contribution to society, please consider a tax-deductible donation. For more information on how to contribute, please contact PAR Customer Support or call 1.800.331.8378.

PAR is incredibly proud of Bob and his accomplishments and is grateful for this recognition of his body of work in the field.

We are on the way to INS!

Are you heading to New York City for the 47th International Neuropsychological Society (INS) Annual Meeting?

Don’t miss Dr. Jennifer Greene’s discussion about using base rates, profile analysis, and interrater discrepancies to enhance interpretation of the BRIEF-Preschool Version on Thursday, Feb. 21 from 8 to 9:15 a.m. in the Broadway Ballroom South and Majestic Complex.

Published in 2003, the BRIEF-P is used to assess executive function in children ages 2 to 5 years, 11 months. A single rating form (also available in Spanish) is used with parents, teachers, and day care providers to rate a child’s executive functions in the home and preschool environments.

The instrument helps assess emerging learning disabilities and attention disorders, language disorders, traumatic brain injuries, lead exposure, and pervasive developmental disorders/autism.

The BRIEF-P is part of the BRIEF family of products, which includes the BRIEF2 and the BRIEF-Adult Version. BRIEF instruments have been translated or adapted for use in more than 60 languages on six continents, and the BRIEF2 is the gold-standard assessment of executive function in children ages 5 to 18 years.

While you’re at INS, also make sure to stop by the PAR booth (#1 and 2) to satisfy your sweet tooth with our delicious chocolates and learn more about our latest memory products: the Child and Adolescent Memory Profile (ChAMP), Multidimensional Everyday Memory Ratings for Youth (MEMRY), and Memory Validity Profile (MVP). This suite of conormed products was specifically designed for and standardized on children and youth ages 5-21 years.

Remember: All orders taken at the PAR booth during INS receive a 15% discount plus free shipping and handling!
