144 Chronic Pain: The Interface
Between Medicine and
Recent evidence clearly demonstrates that psychosocial
variables are the best predictors of medical outcomes.
Psychologists will increasingly find themselves in collaborative roles with medical colleagues to inform treatment. This
introductory workshop will describe the role of the psychologist in the medical setting using fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, and addiction in chronic pain as examples. A review of
the available literature on the three conditions, unique interdisciplinary clinical experiences, and interactive case reviews
will be presented.
Leaders: Sara A. Davin, PsyD, MPH, Judith Scheman, PhD, and Amy MB

145 Evaluations for High-Stakes
Test Accommodation Requests:
Legal, Ethical, and Practical
This intermediate workshop presents the information needed
to produce evaluation reports that appropriately document
the need for accommodations for individuals with disabilities on high-stakes tests. Accommodation decisions are
based on the Americans With Disabilities Act as Amended,
and the act and current case law will be reviewed. The ways
in which documentation of accommodations requirements
for testing entities differ from typical clinical reports will be
discussed, along with ethical concerns and potential pitfalls.
Identification of appropriate accommodations and ways to
support their need will be reviewed.
Leaders: Donna A. Morere, PhD, Gallaudet University; John A.
