IEP Goals New CE Guide

IEP Goals: S.M.A.R.T.E.R. STEPS® Guide is a new 2-hour online continuing education (CE/CEU) course that provides a framework for writing legally compliant IEP goals.

IEP Goals: S.M.A.R.T.E.R. STEPS® Guide is a new 2-hour online continuing education (CE/CEU) course that provides a framework for writing legally compliant IEP goals.

Individualized Education Program (IEP) meetings give parents and professionals a chance to work together to design an IEP for children with learning disabilities who have been determined eligible for special education. The goals for academic achievement and functional performance set for each child are the core of the IEP. Goals represent what you and the other IEP team members think the child will be able to accomplish in their area(s) of disability – academic, developmental, and functional – in a year’s time. Annual goals must be written in measurable terms. 

This course will focus on teaching professionals how to write legally compliant IEP goals using the S.M.A.R.T.E.R. Steps framework. These steps contain a variety of time-saving tips to help special education professionals understand the legal jargon related to IEP goal development. Examples will be provided to demonstrate the strategy so that participants can have a bank of goals for reference. Real scenarios will be problem-solved within the framework, so participants can have practical advice to share with their IEP teams.

Research on the need for compliant IEP goals will be presented based on the US Deptartment of Education’s findings from the Results Driven Accountability measures. Implications of these findings will be discussed as they relate to federal funding being tied to test results and progress on IEP goals. Recent court decisions will also be reviewed to emphasize the importance of developing compliant IEP goals. Course #21-35 | 2019 | 44 pages | 16 posttest questions

The Power of Skepticism and Why It Matters

Why are some people inclined to believe in various conspiracies and paranormal phenomena with no regard for skepticism?

“Our findings suggest that part of the reason may be that many people do not view it as sufficiently important to form their beliefs on rational grounds,” notesTomas Ståhl, a University of Illinois at Chicago social psychologist.

Skepticism may be viewed as the reliance on logic to form beliefs, and is essential to critical thinking and rational thought in healthcare practice.

While previous work in this area has indicated that people with higher cognitive ability – or a more analytic thinking style – are less inclined to believe in conspiracies and the paranormal. Ståhl wanted to know if other factors might influence a person’s tendency toward skepticism.

Working with Jan-Willem van Prooijen of Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, he conducted two online surveys with more than 300 respondents each to assess analytic thinking and the reliance on logic to form beliefs.

The first survey found that an analytic cognitive style was associated with weaker paranormal beliefs, conspiracy beliefs and conspiracy mentality. However, this was only the case among participants who strongly valued forming their beliefs based on logic and evidence (Ståhl et al., 2017).

“Reasonable skepticism about various conspiracy theories and paranormal phenomena does not only require a relatively high cognitive ability, but also strong motivation to be rational,” explains Ståhl.

“When the motivation to form your beliefs based on logic and evidence is not there, people with high cognitive ability are just as likely to believe in conspiracies and paranormal phenomena as people with lower cognitive ability” (Ståhl, 2017).

In the second survey, Ståhl and his team examined whether these effects were uniquely attributable to having an analytic cognitive style or whether they were explained by more general individual differences in cognitive ability. Results were more consistent with a general cognitive ability (Ståhl et al., 2017).

Interestingly, Ståhl notes that despite a century of better educational opportunities and increased intelligence scores in the U.S. population, unfounded beliefs remain pervasive in contemporary society. Moreover, from linking vaccines with autism to climate change skepticism, these widespread conspiracy theories and other unfounded beliefs can lead to harmful behavior, according to Ståhl.

“Many of these beliefs can, unfortunately, have detrimental consequences for individuals’ health choices, as well as for society as a whole,” he explains.

Whether in balancing theories that vaccines cause autism or in decreasing our tendency to endorse the paranormal, skepticism is what keeps our thinking checked by logic and free from unhinged, and in many cases, damaging beliefs.

Related Online Continuing Education (CE) Course:

The Power of Skepticism and Critical Thinking is a 3-hour online continuing education (CE/CEU) course that examines how positive skepticism and critical thinking are necessary in clinical practice.

The history of health care abounds with treatments that persisted (although they didn’t work) for many years without ever being seriously challenged. How did this happen? More to the point, how is it that this continues to happen today? At least a part of the answer can be found in a very long list of cognitive errors, fallacies, and biases that seem to be part of human nature. Human beings are endowed with the ability to reason and the need to find connections between things and events. The problem is that we have such a strong need to find connections that we sometimes see them even when they are not there. In health care, arriving at the wrong conclusion can be an error of life and death proportions.

This course defines and illustrates the many ways in which health professionals can fall prey to one or more thinking errors that can result in mistaken diagnoses, clinical errors, and reduced therapeutic success. Also reviewed are the powerful influences of propaganda, quackery, and pseudoscience. The antidote to thinking errors and pseudoscience is adherence to the sound principles of positive skepticism and critical thinking in clinical practice. This course offers the opportunity to uncover one’s own biases and learn new strategies and techniques for applying critical thinking skills. Included are how-to lists for evaluating new treatments, conference speakers, published studies, and internet content. Course #31-14 | 2019 | 56 pages | 20 posttest questions

Ostracism: The Psychological Effects

The Psychological Effects of Ostracism is a new 2-hour online continuing education (CE/CEU) course that explores the effects of ostracism and social exclusion in both children and adults – in the real world, and online.

The Psychological Effects of Ostracism is a new 2-hour online continuing education (CE/CEU) course that explores the effects of ostracism and social exclusion in both children and adults - in the real world, and online.

This CE course will explore the reasons why ostracism occurs – from feelings of moral superiority to differences in physical appearance, and even the idea that ostracism is necessary to insure social cooperation. We will then examine the ways in which ostracism leads to feelings of aggression, hostility, the tendency to endorse extreme beliefs, physical effects such as increased stress hormones, decreased immunity and decreased pain tolerance, and disrupts cognitive function often impairing our ability to work.

We will then explore the ways in which ostracism exists online – often known as “cybermobbing” – and the related psychological effects. From there, we will turn our attention to the compensatory behaviors that often result from being ostracized – from decreased self-control and potentially delinquent behavior, to victimization of weaker others, and exaggerated attention seeking behaviors.

Lastly, we will look at the steps clinicians can take to help clients overcome the effects of ostracism – from broadening the social network, restoring values, getting creative, and even some alternative forms of treatment. This section also includes exercises that you can use with clients in session to help restore their sense of belonging, identify unknown strengths and quite possibly, even find psychological growth in the challenging experience of ostracism. Course #21-36 | 2019 | 40 pages | 15 posttest questions

Medical Marijuana CE Course Update

Medical Marijuana CE is a 3-hour online continuing education (CE/CEU) course that reviews the current literature (updated 2019) on the medical, legal, educational, occupational, and ethical aspects of marijuana.

Medical Marijuana is a 3-hour online continuing education (CE/CEU) course that reviews the current literature on medical, legal, educational, occupational, and ethical aspects of marijuana.

In spite of the fact that more than half of the states in this country have enacted legislation legalizing marijuana in some fashion, the reality is that neither the intended “medical” benefits of marijuana nor its known (and as yet unknown) adverse effects have been adequately examined using controlled studies. Conclusive literature remains sparse, and opinion remains divided and contentious.

This course is intended to present a summary of the current literature on the various medical, legal, educational, occupational, and ethical aspects of marijuana. It will address the major questions about marijuana that are as yet unanswered by scientific evidence. The course will conclude with a list of implications for healthcare and mental health practitioners. Course #31-20 | 2019 | 65 pages | 21 posttest questions
