Since many of us are working, and even schooling from home, we have developed the MHS Communications Hub to relay important information and knowledge to help you and your services adapt. In this collection of remote-friendly resources you will be able to explore: the tools and guidelines we have available for remote administration and telepractice, stay up-to-date with professional development webinars and continuing education, and learn how MHS is responding to COVID-19.

In this time of great uncertainty, the changes to normal routines and practices can cause stress and anxiety. Please know that PAR is still here to serve our Customers and we plan to continue to do so in even broader ways. One of those ways is to provide you with information about the COVID-19 pandemic that is relevant and specific to your needs and the needs of those you serve. This page will continually be updated with new resources and with information as we identify solutions. We hope you find it a valuable resource.
Please visit PAR's COVID-19 resource page.
Please note: Free digital manuals and stimulus books - We recently made over 100 FREE TRIAL manuals and stimulus books accessible on Q-global® so that you can continue working while your hard copies are locked in your office or school. Available until at least June 30, instructions on how to access them can be found here.
Due to current restrictions in travel and personal interaction associated with the COVID-19 Pandemic and to support expanded capabilities for all service providers in their delivery of tele-health services, PRO-ED is issuing these guidelines for tele-assessment and an associated statement of No Objection to permit the following use of our copyrighted materials.

R-PAS is here to assist you with any questions or concerns you may have and are providing the following updates concerning R-PAS.
Conducting In-Person Assessments
The R-PAS Team have developed guidelines for clinicians and researchers who are providing assessments that require respondents to hold and interact with physical stimuli like the Rorschach. The current guidelines encompass social distancing for in-person assessment to administer the test. However, we emphasize that these guidelines only apply to situations in which the clinician or researcher has already decided to conduct parts of the assessment in person and, in no way, constitute a recommendation to do so. Click here to view the guidelines.
E-Manual Access to Educators
R-PAS is providing temporary access to the electronic manual for professors and students at no additional cost until the end of the current semester. To inquire about access, please email Julia_clement@williamjames.edu
