  • Bipolar and Related Disorders: Signs, Symptoms, Treatment Strategies, Updated 1st Edition - 3HRS

    Written for mental health professionals, including social workers, counselors, marriage and family therapists, and psychologists, this basic-level course presents essential information about bipolar and related disorders, including diagnostic information from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual, 5th Edition (DSM-5).

The course provides information about a practitioner's identification and resolutions of ethical dilemmas, including ethical decision making models, the influence of competing professional values on the decision making process, and required professional competencies. The codes of ethics and professional standards from the professions of social work (NASW, 2017), psychology (APA, 2017), and counseling (ACA, 2014 and AMHCA, 2015) are presented.

  • Ethical Practices with Older Adults, Revised Updated 1st Edition - 3HRS

    The number of older adults (age 65 and older) living in the United States is growing rapidly. In coming years, healthcare professionals will face this aging of the population, along with the accompanying health and economic challenges. The purpose of this course is to highlight ethical issues that may confront healthcare and behavioral health professionals working with older adults and their families as these individuals near the end of life. This basic-level course is written for healthcare professionals, including social workers, mental health counselors, marriage and family therapists, and psychologists who work with older adults.

  • LGBTQQI: Understanding the Acronyms - 1HRS
    When working with gender and sexual diversity, clinicians may be confronted by an abundance of terminology with which they are unfamiliar. Terms such as gender nonconforming, non-binary, and cisgender may not have been in use when they were earning their degrees but are in increasing use in the professional literature and in the LGBTQQI world. Because there is now a wide array of terminology, this intermediate level course provides vital information for professionals to educate themselves in order to provide appropriate care for their clients and to ensure that they not do or say anything that can be seen as discriminatory.
  • Promoting Mental Health in Schools - 4HRS

    This intermediate-level course provides a broad and comprehensive discussion of issues related to behavioral and mental health in schools and presents strategies for prevention, intervention, assessment, and referrals. Emphasizing practical application, assessment, and treatment interventions, this course summarizes multi-tiered systems of support (MTSS) and common mental health concerns in school settings, including behavioral, anxiety and depressive-related disorders, substance abuse, child abuse, trauma, and crisis intervention. These topics are explored in relation to multicultural, social justice, and developmental considerations. Family involvement and collaboration with outside service providers and systems is also addressed.

  • Substance Use Disorders: Assessment & Treatment, 1st Edition - 5HRS

    Alcohol and drug abuse is a major public health concern, affecting every segment of society. Despite recent advancements in understanding addictions, substance abuse remains a significant problem for individuals, families, and communities in the United States and worldwide. This intermediate-level course is intended for social workers, marriage and family therapists, mental health counselors, and psychologists and aims to bring clinicians in varied settings up to date with current trends in use and abuse, and current treatment recommendations.

  • Telemental Health: An Alternative to Traditional Psychotherapy - 3HRS

    Telemental health (TMH) is a broad term that refers to the provision of behavioral and mental health services using telecommunications or videoconferencing technology. Because technological advances in TMH are developing so rapidly, many practitioners may not have learned about how these advances can be integrated into clinical practice. Research has shown no evidence that TMH delivery of evidence-based mental health treatment is less effective than in-person delivery, even in the treatment of complex disorders like PTSD. This intermediate-level course provides a framework for understanding issues relating to TMH and offers introductory information for developing TMH clinical practices. Case vignettes are included.

  • Youth Suicide, Updated 1st Edition - 4HRS

    Participants will learn about assessment approaches and treatment planning. A decision-making tree and safety planning and documentation protocols are provided. The course reviews the use of psychopharmacology and of psychotherapies such as dialectical behavior therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, and attachment-based family therapy. Presentations of case vignettes illuminate key concepts for the various interventions. Special mention is given to clinicians who experience the loss of a patient to suicide. This course is designed for behavioral health specialists, including social workers, mental health counselors, marriage and family therapists, and psychologists.
