When young children have a negative and chaotic relationship with their caregivers, they have a risk for developing an attachment disorder. One of the most severe types of attachment disorders seen in children who have experienced abuse and neglect is reactive attachment disorder, which has resulted in general behavioral problems, social problems, and mental health problems in children. Untreated reactive attachment disorder can also lead to an increased risk of mental health problems as an adult. While reactive attachment disorder is considered relatively rare, it is frequently seen in institutional settings such as foster care. Approximately 35 to 45 percent of children in foster care have symptoms of reactive attachment disorder. Family based treatment approaches can both teach caregivers parenting skills and address behaviors in children that are effective in improving attachment, sense of self, and reducing negative behaviors associated with reactive attachment disorder. This course discusses the symptoms and risks associated with reactive attachment disorder and explores effective treatment approaches.

Relapse after the successful completion of a substance abuse treatment program is often devastating to those who were in recovery as well as traumatic for their families. Unfortunately, relapse is common for individuals who complete substance abuse treatment. In fact, anywhere from 40 to 60% of those who complete a treatment program eventually relapse. While many substance abuse professionals argue that relapse is part of recovery, relapse threatens to undermine addiction recovery. Relapse prevention provides individuals who have completed a substance abuse program with the resources and support needed to maintain long-term sobriety. With effective relapse prevention, the number of patients who achieve permanent sobriety from substance use can be increased. This course will discuss the importance of relapse prevention therapy and the effective approaches and premises of relapse prevention. Also, we will also explore the skills needed as a counselor in the treatment of relapse prevention.

Extracted from a guide created by the National Center on Trauma-Informed Care as a technical assistance document to help make trauma-informed peer support available to women who receive or have received services in behavioral health or other human service systems. This course provides information tools and resources to help address the issues of religion and spirituality in peer support contexts. In this course "religion" refers to an organized faith tradition with accepted theology practices and structure while "spirituality" refers to an individual's sense of connection with the wholeness of the universe.

Children and adolescents who run away from their homes are among the most vulnerable populations in the world. Although some individuals who engage in runaway behavior do so out of rebellion or defiance of rules, the majority are seeking escape from an abusive or dysfunctional home. This is a vulnerable population as there are limited safe options for children and youth to meet their needs when they have run away. Many runaway youth live on the street or reside with strangers where they are subjected to physical abuse and sexual exploitation. Youth who engage in frequent run away behavior have also been noted to have high rates of mental health problems, including depression and suicidal ideation. Service provision can be more difficult to provide to youth who run away, as they are often unavailable to engage in treatment or other recommended services consistently. Increased service provision that will specifically address the unique challenges for this population can help reduce runaway behaviors and address some of the underlining conditions that contribute to millions of youth who leave their homes and programs.

The need for restrictive practices as a response to violent behavior remains one of the most controversial approaches to patient care in hospitals, mental health facilities, and schools. Although the practice continues to be used in emergency situations to prevent injury to patients and staff, there is increased focus on eliminating the need for restraints and seclusions. De-escalation techniques and the Four S Model provide a therapeutic intervention for agitated patients, and can be seen as the future of preventing emergencies that require restrictive practices. This overview of restrictive practices will discuss the methods of restraints commonly used as well as the benefits and risks of using restraints and seclusions in hospitals, mental health facilities, and schools.

Parents begin to form ideas about who their children will be and how they will raise them into adulthood before they are even born. Children are first exposed to ideas regarding things such as self-regulation, sense of self, achievement, and social roles in the home. Those ideas are then reinforced or challenged through school, peers, the community, and media. This course will discuss how socialization occurs, including why children differ in their motivation to persevere, how early children can distinguish between right and wrong, and the process of developing a conscience.

The microsystem of Brofenbrenner's ecological model provides much information about how infants and toddlers develop attitudes and beliefs about their world. Individuals primarily involved with young children such as parents, siblings, teachers, have a significant impact on the values and attitudes they develop as they grow. In addition to attitudes and beliefs, it is important to also understand how cognitive skills arise in infancy and childhood and their relationship to the development of later attitudes and beliefs. This course will discuss the basic cognitive skills acquired during infancy and childhood and how different theorists approach this aspect of development. In addition, we will explore how attachment forms in relationships and the development of value and belief systems at the beginnings of life.
