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.

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 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.

Anxiety disorders impact more than twenty-five million people in the U.S., and these disorders are the most common mental health diagnoses given to children and adolescents. Anxiety disorders are often identified by common symptoms that may include the overwhelming feeling of panic and fear, obsessive thoughts, and recurring nightmares. In both children and adolescents, anxiety disorders often interfere with academic functioning in school and socializing with peers. In fact, adolescents with anxiety often drop out of school, negatively impacting their ability to earn a living wage as adults. Untreated anxiety during adolescence also increases the risk of substance abuse, a risk that continues into adulthood. Effective treatment for anxiety includes a combination of mental health therapy and pharmacological therapy. Treating symptoms of anxiety in adolescence helps to create positive outcomes in adulthood. This course provides an overview of anxiety in children and adolescents and includes an overview of the various types of anxiety disorders regularly seen in youth. This course will also discuss evidence based treatment approaches recognized for effectively treating the symptoms of anxiety in children and adolescents.

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.

"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.

One of the primary challenges in the child welfare field is the relationship between professionals working as case managers and the parents of children placed in care. Parents who have their children removed and placed in foster care experience feelings of shame and grief, which is manifested through anger and outrage and often directed towards case workers and foster parents. Managing these feelings is perhaps the primary barrier facing child welfare workers as they attempt to build a working alliance or therapeutic relationship with parents. This course will discuss how to engage parents in foster care and overcome parental anger in order to effectively work towards family reunification. This course also presents ideas to effectively help case managers and other professionals interact more positively and effectively with parents experiencing anger due to their engagement with the child welfare system, increasing positive outcomes for the entire family system.

Depression is one of the most prevalent mental health disorders found in children and it can have a devastating impact on child and adolescent academic and social functioning. Childhood depression has been linked to abuse and neglect, as well as traumatic experiences such as bullying, teasing, social isolation, racial discrimination, and poverty. Untreated depression in children can lead to the development of depression as adults as well as other negative impacts. Childhood depression is a serious disorder that requires early diagnosis and treatment for long-term positive outcomes. Effective treatment approaches involve therapy and psychotropic medication but also a strong support system. This course discusses depression in children and adolescents with a focus on the signs of depression, risk factors, and co-occurring disorders commonly seen. This course also discusses the most effective treatment approaches for depression in children and adolescents.

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.
