The Child Development library integrates history, philosophy, and the applications of child development theories. This library will take an in-depth look at the field of child development, and scientifically identify the changes that occur during childhood through adolescence and then understand how those changes come about taking into account outside sources that are known to influence and impact development.

It is believed that 70% of adolescents have tried alcohol and 50% will have tried an illegal drug by their senior year of high school. In this same period of time, 40% of adolescents will have smoked a cigarette and 20% will have taken prescription pills for the purpose of getting high (NIDA, 2014). As a result of the number of adolescents who are engaging in substance use, over one million adolescents in the U.S. between ages 12 and 17 are in need of treatment for substance-related disorders (Griswold, Aronoff, Kernan & Kahn, 2008). Substance use and dependence in adolescents can have devastating long-term consequences. Substance use in adolescence has been found to be a contributing factor to the development of substance dependence in adulthood. This course discusses how to recognize substance-related disorders in adolescents. Evidence-based diagnosis and treatment of adolescent substance abuse is also included in this overview of substance-related disorders in adolescence.

The child welfare field is charged with assessing the safety of children while also working with parents to address factors that may have warranted their children’s removal from the home. When children in the foster care system are unable to reunite with their families, some other type of permanent living placement becomes the goal. For over a hundred years, the child welfare and adoption systems have continued to evolve while remaining true to their initial focus on protecting children. With an estimated 700,000 children believed to be victims of abuse or neglect each year, the child welfare and adoption systems continue to provide safety and stability for vulnerable youth. The child welfare and adoption systems must continue to adapt to the diverse needs of families in order to provide effective services. The provision of effective services will help to achieve residential permanency for children and stability for families. This overview of the adoption and child welfare systems will explore the history of child welfare and adoption in the United States. The course will also provide a chronological evaluation of how families become involved with the child welfare system, decisions to provide preventative services or to place children into foster care, the services provided to families, the standard policies and procedures of child welfare, and the decisions to either reunify families or to place children for adoption.

Many individuals who are in a hospital or at home following a prolonged illness or injury that impacts mobility become frustrated when they cannot move around as they desire. Mobility and ambulation are important to overall health and recovery from illness and injury. Often, this recovery includes the support of care providers skilled in lifting, moving, and supporting an individual with limited mobility. Some patients also need help with their basic needs because they not longer possess enough movement control to complete hygiene or other daily tasks without assistance. This course discusses how care providers can offer support to individuals with mobility and ambulation issues, whether that includes minimal support or more extensive lifting and transferring needs.

Muchos pacientes, clientes o residentes están acostumbrados a un estilo de vida activo. Pueden sentirse frustrados cuando no pueden moverse como lo hacían antes de una enfermedad, lesión o límites del envejecimiento. Los proveedores de atención deben comprender esta frustración y aprender a ayudar a los pacientes, clientes y residentes con su desplazamiento. Algunos pacientes también necesitan ayuda con sus necesidades básicas porque no tienen la capacidad de cuidarse a ellos mismos. El proveedor de atención médica necesita saber cómo mover a un paciente de un lugar a otro. Este curso trata sobre cómo los proveedores de atención médica transfieren a los adultos de manera segura y proporciona asistencia para la circulación.

Each year an estimated 24,000 to 30,000 youth age out of foster care without having obtained a permanent family environment or long-term support system. Many of these youth are in crisis and struggle to function independently. Youth who age out of foster care have been observed to struggle with homelessness, incarceration, poor educational attainment, high rates of unemployment, and substance abuse (Spencer et al, 2010). Foster care agencies have created independent living programs to address some of the challenges that face older adolescents and youth aging out of the foster care system, but many are not effective at creating positive outcomes. Foster care agencies must look towards providing long term care for young adults who age out of the child welfare system. This overview of providing services to older adolescents will explore the risks associated with foster care, and why this population is more likely to experience negative outcomes. This overview will also evaluate services currently being offered to older adolescents, and provide suggestions which may improve service provision to this population.

Anxiety is a normal reaction to stress that arises in life that everyone has experienced. Anxiety alerts us when something is dangerous and can help prepare us to respond to situations. While similar to fear, anxiety is different in that it is focused on the anticipation of a threat at some point in the future and might be quite general in its nature. Sometimes, anxiety can become so disruptive to functioning that it becomes a disorder. Anxiety disorders are one of the most common categories of mental disorders experienced by individuals, with many effective treatment options available. This course will overview the common characteristics of anxiety disorders, risk factors, and the diagnosis and treatment of each disorder.
