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.

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.

As a result of trauma experienced within their biological families, children in foster care have often been found to demonstrate sexual, aggressive, abusive, and inappropriate behaviors. Other challenging behaviors commonly seen with foster children include lying, stealing, anger, running away, efforts to self-harm, sleep problems, and bed wetting. The challenging behaviors exhibited as a result of abuse can lead to instability in their foster care placements, as well as difficulties in school when foster parents and teachers are ill-equipped to manage children who act out. Behavioral management techniques are essential in addressing some of the more common behavioral outbursts and problem behaviors seen in foster children. Behavioral management techniques teach foster children problem solving and socialization skills. The use of behavioral management techniques is essential to stabilize the placement of foster children, creating more positive outcomes for them within foster care, and ensuring their overall well-being. This course will discuss models of intervention, strategies for behavioral management, and how foster parents can utilize behavioral management techniques.

While there are a number of reasons for individuals to experience poor outcomes in treatment, there are occasions when the failure to complete part or all of treatment results from something done by the professionals overseeing treatment and not the client. When the client is not responsible for a treatment failure, they may view that as a grievance against their provider. Grievances are defined as written complaints by a client stating that a facility, program, or provider wrongly denied them, reduced, or terminated services. Grievance procedures can help both providers and clients navigate treatment failures. When done correctly, grievance procedures are a win-win for both service providers and the community that they serve. This overview of patient/client grievances will take an in-depth look at client rights and how they are connected to the grievance process in both healthcare and behavioral health settings. The overview will also explore situations where clients would file a grievance before discussing the application and appeals process.

In this day and age with all the things that can happen to a person and all of their information, client and patient rights are important to know and understand. Client-patient rights have changed from when they first became a part of medical and research programs to what we know now. While rights vary from state to state and county to county, the rights of patients and clients are a very important part of healthcare. This course will discuss client-patient rights terminology as well as how it changes based on the setting.

"Substance Use Treatment Providers must be vigilant about patient privacy throughout treatment. In order to protect patient privacy and confidentiality, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), issued a Final Rule to amend 42 CFR Part 2. Any program with federal assistance must comply with the Final Rule, and all healthcare workers should be aware of the changes to consent, confidentiality, and privacy impacting patient treatment. While not completely aligned, HIPAA works together with 42 CFR Part 2 to strengthen patient privacy and confidentiality while undergoing substance abuse treatment. This course will provide an overview of HIPAA and 42 CFR Part 2, discuss how the two interact and work together, where there are challenges, and how to safeguard patient information in substance use treatment facilities."

One of the central concepts of mental health, health care, social work, and substance abuse treatment is the therapeutic relationship. The therapeutic relationship provides the basis for successful treatment, and it is guided by the ethical guidelines identified in each specialty of behavioral health. Therapeutic boundaries and conflicts of interest typically arise together during treatment, and both can strongly impact the success of therapy. This overview of therapeutic conflicts of interest explores these ethical areas and how boundary violations can damage the therapeutic relationship. Included in this overview are examples of conflicts of interest and boundary violations, as well as how to avoid them.

Crisis intervention is a currently evolving field as we face an increase of workplace violence and aggression as well as societal changes. Professionals working with people on a regular basis will experience conflict at some point. For those working in medical or behavioral health settings, it is also likely that a crisis on a small or potentially larger scale will be experienced at some point. Being prepared to address conflict and crisis as a clinician as well as a professional working in non-clinical settings is a necessity. Therefore, it is important to know how to handle conflict effectively to prevent escalation as well as what to do when a situation has resulted in a crisis. This course will discuss what constitutes a crisis and explore different techniques and strategies to intervene in a crisis, including de-escalation techniques.
