FYiPOST: New US Sentencing Commission reviews of sentencing jurisprudence

From Sentencing and Law Blog

Undaunted by earthquakes or hurricanes or the unnatural disasters that are even more common inside the Beltway these days, the US Sentencing Commission this summer has completed and now posted new documents that "present specific decisions by the U.S. Supreme Court and U.S. circuit courts of appeals regarding the federal sentencing guidelines and related sentencing issues."

Specifically, at this link everyone can find a lengthy document with brief summaries of nearly every major Supreme Court ruling on federal sentencing issues over the last 25 years.  And, on this page, everyone can find links to circuit-by-circuit reports on guideline interpretation and post-Booker jurisprudence.

FYiPOST: TEXAS JUDGE UPHOLDS DOCTORAL DEGREE FOR INDEPENDENT PRACTICE OF PSYCHOLOGY

TEXAS JUDGE UPHOLDS DOCTORAL DEGREE FOR INDEPENDENT PRACTICE OF PSYCHOLOGY

 

Austin, TX - Today, Judge Rhonda Hurley in Travis County District Court, Austin, Texas, upheld the ruling that the entry level to independent practice of psychology in Texas is the doctoral degree.   Judge Hurley ruled that the Texas State Board of Examiners of Psychologists (TSBEP) has the authority to regulate the practice of Licensed Psychological Associates (LPAs) through its rule making authority which states only doctoral-trained, Licensed Psychologists may practice independently.

In September, 2010 the organization which represents Licensed Psychological Associates, the Texas Association of Psychological Associates (TAPA), filed a lawsuit in Austin, Texas, against the TSBEP on the grounds that the Board has no statutory authority to prevent Licensed Psychological Associates from practicing independently.  According to Texas statute, Licensed Psychological Associates are defined as individuals trained in psychology at the Master's level. By Board Rule, LPAs must practice under the supervision of a doctoral-trained Licensed Psychologist.  The Texas Psychological Association (TPA) was granted permission by the court to intervene in this case; arguing the intention of the legislature was that only doctoral-trained individuals could provide independent psychological services.  TPA claimed that TSBEP rule, which clearly states the supervision requirement for LPAs, does define how psychology is to be practiced in this state even though the supervision requirement is void in the statute.

David White, TPA's Executive Director, states "We thank Judge Hurley for her judgment in this case and for clarifying this issue that has been debated for so many years in the psychology community.  We appreciate the services  provided by Licensed Psychological Associates but are fully committed to assuring that independent psychological  practice in Texas remains solely for individuals trained at the doctoral level."

One of the best books on intellectual assessment has been revised: Flanagan & Harrison's Contemporary Intellectual Assessment

Just in time for your XMAS shopping!!!! One of the best texts on intellectual assessment and theories related to the practice of intellectual assessment.

The publisher has given me permission to post this information. The text below does not show all the formatting in the original document sent to me, so if you want a nicer PDF version to share with others, click here.


Conflict of interest disclosure: I have coauthored a chapter in the book and will be splitting an honorarium check (not big, trust me) and will be receiving a free copy. But, I get no royalties (I wish I did).


Kudos to Dr. Flanagan and Harrison for revising what I consider one of the best texts on intellectual assessment.

CRITICAL ACCLAIM
"This is the most comprehensive, authoritative, and up-to-date text on intellectual assessment available. It covers current theories of intelligence, methods of intelligence testing, and their applications to special populations. The chapters are all written by leading scholars and combine clear research summaries with practical advice, making this a valuable book for graduate students and professionals interested in both research and practice."—Paul J. Frick, PhD, University Distinguished Professor and Chair, Department of Psychology, University of New Orleans

"A single source for essential, detailed information on the past, present, and future of intellectual and cognitive assessment practices. The table of contents provides an objective sweep of all major theories, tests, and evaluation procedures at a glance; the expertise of the chapter authors results in a work that is consistently outstanding. The third edition reflects the latest efforts in clinical inquiry that explore cognitive abilities and processes as they relate to the real world. It emphasizes cross-cultural issues in assessment and incorporates new approaches and instruments related to learning and developmental problems. This is an essential text for graduate-level assessment courses."
—Elaine Fletcher-Janzen, EdD, Department of School Psychology, Chicago School of Professional Psychology

"This updated volume is a valuable addition to the field of intellectual and psychological assessment. The editors have assembled the leaders in the field to present the most up-to-date information available. Many of the chapters are written by the test authors and theory creators themselves; readers will benefit from the firsthand approach to test and theory interpretation. The book is written in a way that will appeal to both experienced practitioners and graduate students just starting out in the field."—Andrew S. Davis, PhD, Department of Educational Psychology, Ball State University

"A superb theoretical and clinical overview....The standards of theoretical and methodological rigor, comprehensive topical coverage, balanced and objective critical analysis, life span cognitive evaluation, and advocacy for special populations...are beautifully balanced. One could not ask for more from a review and critical evaluation of this extensive, rich, and complex literature."—PsycCRITIQUES

"Should be required reading in all intelligence testing courses and by anyone involved in the assessment of human and cognitive abilities."—Psychotherapy in Private Practice

DESCRIPTION
In one volume, this authoritative reference presents a current, comprehensive overview of intellectual and cognitive assessment, with a focus on practical applications.
