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.

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.

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.
