Cultural Humility in Counseling (3 hrs)
The American population is extremely diverse and in the upcoming years diversity in the US will continue to increase. Professionals engaged in counseling must become increasingly self-aware and must understand both how their own unique individual experiences influence their worldviews and values and how the unique individual experiences of their clients influence each client’s worldviews and values. This course discusses intersectionality and the ways that various ethnic and racial groups may have a diversity of beliefs, social structures, interactional patterns, and expectations, and how each individual client has various intersecting dimensions of diversity that include socioeconomic class, sexuality, gender identification, and dis/ability.

Keeping Clients Safe: Error and Safety in Behavioral Health Settings, 2nd Edition (3 hrs)
The vast majority of behavioral health professionals receive no instruction in client safety, and this knowledge gap compromises the ability of mental health professionals to protect their clients from harm and from being active participants in creating cultures of safety in behavioral health settings. Many behavioral health professionals may not even be aware of The Joint Commission’s reporting program for sentinel events (unanticipated events that result in death or serious physical or psychological injury unrelated to the person’s illness). This basic-level course focuses on client safety problems and solutions in behavioral health settings.

Military families are discussed, including marital satisfaction and the effects of military life on the spouse and children.

Telemental Health: An Alternative to Traditional Psychotherapy (3 hrs)
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.
