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.

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.

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.
