The next VKC Clinical Translational Core Training Series Seminar, titled "Clinical Approaches to Assessment and Treatment in the Digital Age" will be held Friday, Nov. 9, from 12:00-1:00 p.m. in Room 241 of the Vanderbilt Kennedy Center, located at 110 Magnolia Circle, Nashville.
Clinical Translational Core Assessment Series Panel: Clinical Approaches to Assessment and Treatment in the Digital Age
November 9 (F)
Held in Room 241, Vanderbilt Kennedy Center/One Magnolia Circle Building. Most of us would have a hard time getting through a typical day without access to our smart phones, personal computers, tablets, email accounts, apps, and social media. The technological developments that made these advances possible are also having a significant impact on the assessment and treatment of individuals with cognitive, communication, physical, and mental health challenges across the life span. Current successful applications include automated administration and scoring of psychometric tests, augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) devices, functional skill training and motor rehabilitation for patients with cerebral palsy, traumatic brain injuries and strokes, and clinical virtual reality treatments for phobias, PTSD, depression and pain reduction – to name just a few. The potential of these new approaches is exciting but also raises multiple research, ethical and pragmatic questions. Please join us for a lively inter-professional and cross-generational discussion about current and potential future applications of technology for the assessment and treatment of individuals with developmental disabilities and mental health challenges. Panelists will include:
- Evon Batey Lee, Ph.D. (Moderator),, Associate Professor of Pediatrics, Psychology and Psychiatry; Neurobehavioral Phenotypes Coordinator, Vanderbilt Kennedy Center
- Joe McLaughlin, Ph.D., Associate Clinical Professor of Psychology and Human Development
- Noah Robinson, B.Sc., Clinical Psychology Doctoral Student, Hollon Research Group
- Joshua Wade, M.S., CEO, Adaptive Technology Consulting
Lunch will be offered. Please register by Nov. 1 for an accurate catering order.
