One of the primary challenges in the child welfare field is the relationship between professionals working as case managers and the parents of children placed in care. Parents who have their children removed and placed in foster care experience feelings of shame and grief, which is manifested through anger and outrage and often directed towards case workers and foster parents. Managing these feelings is perhaps the primary barrier facing child welfare workers as they attempt to build a working alliance or therapeutic relationship with parents. This course will discuss how to engage parents in foster care and overcome parental anger in order to effectively work towards family reunification. This course also presents ideas to effectively help case managers and other professionals interact more positively and effectively with parents experiencing anger due to their engagement with the child welfare system, increasing positive outcomes for the entire family system.

Depression is one of the most prevalent mental health disorders found in children and it can have a devastating impact on child and adolescent academic and social functioning. Childhood depression has been linked to abuse and neglect, as well as traumatic experiences such as bullying, teasing, social isolation, racial discrimination, and poverty. Untreated depression in children can lead to the development of depression as adults as well as other negative impacts. Childhood depression is a serious disorder that requires early diagnosis and treatment for long-term positive outcomes. Effective treatment approaches involve therapy and psychotropic medication but also a strong support system. This course discusses depression in children and adolescents with a focus on the signs of depression, risk factors, and co-occurring disorders commonly seen. This course also discusses the most effective treatment approaches for depression in children and adolescents.

This course is designed to present an overall view of dissociative identity disorder, formerly called Multiple Personality Disorder.  Most people have experienced some type of mild dissociation, such as daydreaming or losing themselves in a project.  However, Dissociative Identity Disorder is thought to stem from trauma experienced by the person with the disorder.  The dissociative aspect is thought to be a coping mechanism-the person literally dissociates himself from a situation or experience that’s too violent, traumatic, or painful to assimilate with his conscious self.  This course will take you through the myths and misconceptions about DID, the causes and symptoms, and discusses possible therapeutic goals for individuals with DID.

Both Anxiety and Obsessive Compulsive Disorders can be diagnosed in childhood or adulthood. There are many different types of anxiety disorders, depending on the type of object or situation that provokes the excessive or inappropriate response. Like Anxiety Disorders, Obsessive-Compulsive and Related Disorders can also have a pervasive negative impact on the quality of life. While we have all experienced some aspect of anxiety and obsessive-compulsive symptoms, these disorders concern symptoms that dominate the person’s behavior to such an extent that they cause significant distress and/or interfere with major areas of functioning. This course will discuss both Anxiety and Obsessive-Compulsive and Related Disorders, their symptoms, diagnoses included, and major features of each diagnosis.

The chapter in DSM-5 immediately following Substance-Related and Addictive Disorders is devoted to a group of mental conditions categorized as neurocognitive disorders (NCDs). These illnesses were classified as “Dementia, Delirium, Amnestic, and Other Cognitive Disorders” in DSM-IV. The common underlying feature in all of these diagnoses is a clinical deficit in cognitive functioning that is acquired following a period of higher cognitive functioning, rather than being present from birth or very early in life. This course includes an overview of neurocognitive disorders, how to identify commonalities and differences, and expands upon diagnostic criteria for disorders in this category.

The current outbreak of Ebola in West Africa has been connected to more than 4,000 deaths since the latest outbreak began late 2013 (Weintraub, 2014). The Ebola virus, formerly known as Ebola hemorrhagic fever, is a rare disease caused by an infection from the Ebola virus strains. While rare, it is severe and often fatal in humans. Wild animals are believed to transmit the virus to people, and it spreads through the human population through close person-to-person contact (WHO, 2014). This course provides an overview of the Ebola virus as well as information about the current outbreak and current approaches to treatment.

Ethics are the standards of behavior that we hold as individuals and groups, telling us how we should act in life both personally and professionally. They are our value system in practice. In our professional lives, ethics define what it means to be a good professional in one’s chosen field. Within behavioral health professions, there are numerous ethical codes of conduct designed to guide the practitioners in the ethical principles of their specialty within the larger field of behavioral health.

This course discusses ethical practice, both in general as well as in behavioral health field. Specifically, we will explore the scale and scope of professional ethics and guidelines for professional decision-making.
