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.

Workers who use alcohol and drugs on the job, or come to work while under the influence of either, pose significant risks to the safety, productivity, and profitability of a company. Companies that adopt and enforce a drug-free workplace policy and program can mitigate many of these risks and will have healthier, happier workers.

An entire chapter of DSM-5 is devoted to Schizophrenia Spectrum and Other Psychotic Disorders. These disorders cover a wide range of symptoms and degrees of severity. However, a defining characteristic of all of them is the presence of one or more of the following symptoms: delusions, hallucinations, and disorganized thinking. Another large group of disorders addressed in a separate chapter in DSM-5 is Bipolar and Related Disorders. Much like Schizophrenia spectrum and other psychotic disorders, symptoms and degree of severity can range from minor to significant impairment of functioning. This course discusses the symptoms and diagnostic categories of both schizophrenic spectrum and other psychotic disorders as well as bipolar and related disorders in DSM-5, including all major types and codes.

These two chapters address a diverse group of mental disorders. Sexual dysfunctions are characterized by a clinically significant disturbance in the individual’s ability to respond sexually or experience sexual pleasure. The chapter that follows addresses gender dysphoria, which includes clinical problems created by the lack of congruence that occurs in some people between the gender assigned to them at birth and their experienced or expressed gender. This course will look at both of these DSM-5 chapters, diagnostic criteria and symptoms, as well as the development and prognosis for each of these disorders.

These two chapters in the DSM-5 may have little in common in terms of symptoms, but they are both chapters that include disorders that impact a broad cross-section of the population and include physical symptoms manifesting cognitive and emotional distress. Somatic Symptom Disorder and the other related disorders that are grouped together all focus on disorders that manifest through somatic symptoms. Elimination disorders, typically occurring in childhood, are characterized by elimination of urine or feces that is inappropriate given the individual’s age and level of development. While both of these chapters include disorders with symptoms that likely will lead to a trip to the primary doctor first, all of these disorders have underlying psychological causes that create significant impairment in daily life. This course will discuss diagnostic criteria, primary symptoms, and differentiation between all of the included disorders in both of these categories.

The DSM-5 chapter immediately following Disruptive, Impulse-Control, and Conduct Disorders is a very extensive chapter on Substance Related and Addictive Disorders. The substance-related and addictive disorders are in some respects very similar to the disruptive, impulse-control, and conduct disorders because, like the latter, they are characterized by a tendency to act impulsively without regard to the consequences. In fact, many individuals with a history of early onset conduct disorder become substance users. In contrast to the numerous substance-related disorders covered in this chapter, only one non-substance-related disorder is discussed, which is gambling disorder. This course includes the necessary information to help you understand all of these disorders, starting with a broad overview of substance-related disorders in general, and then more detailed coverage of disorders for specific substances. Lastly, you will find a full description of the addictive behavioral pattern that meets the diagnostic criteria for gambling disorder.

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. Placing an emphasis on ethical practice protects customers and clients from abuse and mistreatment and hold professionals accountable. 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.
