Hey MA Clinical Students,
See the e-mail from Dr. Boccaccini below. This sounds like an excellent opportunity.

On Saturday, August 1, Dan Murrie is going to be on campus to train students in the administration of the Psychopathy Checklist Revised and the STATIC-99. These are two of the most well-known measures that psychologists use to assess risk for criminal recidivism. This type of training usually costs upwards of $500-$800 per person, but this training session will be open to grad students for free. The training will be an all-day thing (8 hours), but is well worth the time, especially for MA students who are interested in forensic work or those who may end up working in probation or corrections settings (or, those planning on applying to PHD programs). Part of the training will be didactic. The other part will involve practice scoring of offender cases. Students should know that we will be using data from the practice scoring to evaluate the outcome of the training program (but not to evaluate students in any way).
Students who are interested in attending the training should e-mail me as soon as possible (Boccaccini at shsu.edu).
