This workshop is designed to provide up to date and in-depth information on clinical treatment of cognitive dysfunction across the lifespan, with a focus on executive function impairments. Participants will analyze cognitive symptoms and errors within everyday activities. Interpretation of performance based assessment of executive function, will be reviewed within the context of clinical cases. Participants will learn metacognitive strategy techniques to promote strategy use and generalization across everyday activities. Specific cueing methods and use of a structured metacognitive framework to help clients understand, anticipate, self-monitor and regulate cognitive symptoms will be illustrated within the context of the Multicontext approach. Clinical cases will be interweaved throughout the workshop for demonstration, analysis and problem solving. Case applications of intervention principles will be discussed across different ages and populations with executive function impairments such as in children, adolescents, or adults with neurological and mental health conditions.

Clinical laboratory testing plays a crucial role in the detection, diagnosis, and treatment of disease. Clinical laboratory scientists, also referred to as medical technologists, and clinical laboratory technologists, are part of the health care team that collaborates with physicians in the treatment of patients.They examine and analyze body fluids, cells, and tissues.
The Clinical Laboratory Science program at Mercy College consists of three years of general education and basic science courses, followed by a one-year professional internship at a hospital clinical laboratory. The college-based courses meet the requirements for admission into an affiliated hospital School of Medical (Clinical) Laboratory Science and provide students with the conceptual and technical background needed to complete their clinical education.
Students are expected to achieve entry-level proficiency and standards of excellence for their field, including:
Students are expected to demonstrate professional behavior, by their ability to:
Students are expected to demonstrate competency in applying methods of scientific inquiry and/or evidence-based learning to guide clinical/professional/scientific decision making.
Students are expected to demonstrate a commitment to engage in inter-professional and/or community service, including regional and/or global service, using knowledge and skills gained during their academic studies to foster diversity, interdisciplinary initiatives, and/or eliminate health disparities.
