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.

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.

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.

An entire chapter in the DSM-5 is devoted to depressive disorders. Depressive disorders are among the most frequently diagnosed mental disorders that clinicians are likely to encounter in their practice. However, not only the underlying causes and presenting symptoms but the duration and pervasiveness of the illness and degree of impairment vary greatly. All depressive disorders are characterized by the presence of a sad, empty, or irritable mood with accompanying cognitive and somatic changes that can significantly impair level of functioning. What distinguishes one disorder from another is primarily the duration, timing, and presumed etiology. This course will discuss new diagnoses in depressive disorders found in the DSM-5 as well as both descriptions of and distinguishing criteria for different types of depressive disorders.

This is the edition published in May, 2013, and currently being used by psychiatrists, psychologists, and students of these disciplines all over the world, DSM-5. This course includes a brief description of the editions that preceded it to lay the groundwork for understanding both the present need for a DSM-5 and how it came to be.

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.

Sleep-wake disorders are grouped together in a chapter of mental disorders in DSM-5. Appropriate treatment methods vary depending on the nature and severity of the condition, but in some instances, follow up with a sleep specialist is advisable. Sleep disorders are often accompanied by other symptoms of mental disorders such as depression, anxiety, and cognitive changes. In addition, persistent sleep disturbances (both insomnia and excessive sleepiness) are risk factors for the development of new mental illnesses. This course will provide an overview of sleep-wake disorders, diagnostic criteria, and co-existing disorders.

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.
