Price: $34.95 Hours:4 Contact Hours
Item # B4156  

Mental health clinicians play an important role in helping children and adults with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) manage their symptoms and achieve an optimal level of functioning. This basic-level course discusses the OCD diagnosis, including subtypes of OCD and their symptoms. Numerous case vignettes are presented in the course to describe symptom manifestation, delineate subtypes, and demonstrate treatment methods.  

Participants will learn about the differential diagnosis, which can entail obsessive-compulsive spectrum disorders, body sensation and appearance disorders, eating disorders, dissociative disorders, delusional disorders, impulse-control disorders and nonsuicidal self-injurious behaviors, and hoarding, among others. Causal and influential factors are described, including biological, psychological, social, and cross-cultural factors, and participants will learn about various assessment methods and tools. Treatment approaches such as medication, cognitive therapy, and family therapy are discussed, and the course describes relapse prevention and outcome evaluation. The details of a hypothetical client’s therapeutic process are presented throughout the course as a case study to illustrate the use of a multimodal approach to assist clients in their recovery and to maximize treatment outcomes. With the information learned in this course, the clinician ensures that the diagnosis is correct, develops realistic and manageable goals, and assists clients and families in symptom management so they can recover or improve their emotional, psychological, social, and occupational functioning. This course is written for mental health professionals, including social workers, counselors, marriage and family therapists, psychologists, and nurses.

Youth Suicide

Price: $34.95 Hours:4 Contact Hours
Item # B4170  

Suicide and suicidal behaviors affect individuals, families, and communities, and addressing youth suicide has become a public health imperative. This intermediate-level course provides essential information on the tools needed to assess youth for suicide risk and to engage in interventions with these youth across various settings. Learners will become aware of 10 myths about youth suicide, which too often dictate how adults interact with youth who may be at heightened risk for suicide, both in public and in clinical practice. Four prominent theories of suicide are described: Durkheim’s sociological theory of suicide, Shneidman’s theory of the suicidal mind, Joiner’s interpersonal theory of suicide, and the family systems theory of suicide. Suicide risk factors are discussed, including psychiatric diagnoses, family and social factors, sexual minority status (individuals self-identified as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender), bullying, and demographic factors like age, gender, race, and ethnicity. 

Participants will learn about assessment approaches and treatment planning. The course reviews the use of psychopharmacology and of psychotherapies such as dialectical behavior therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, and attachment-based family therapy. A particular focus is placed on brief interventions that can be applied across multiple settings. Presentations of case vignettes illuminate key concepts for the various interventions. Special mention is given to clinicians who experience the loss of a patient to suicide. This course is designed for behavioral health specialists, including social workers, mental health counselors, marriage and family therapists, psychologists, and advanced practice and psychiatric nurses.

Posttraumatic Stress Disorder: An Overview, Updated 1st Edition

Price: $19.95 Hours:2 Contact Hours
Item # B4155  

PTSD has received a great deal of clinical and research attention in the last 30 years. While most individuals who experience traumatic stressors do not develop posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), the high incidence of trauma exposure in the United States requires that health professionals routinely assess individuals for exposure to a single traumatic event, ongoing traumatic experiences,  and symptoms of PTSD . Various events may be considered traumatic stressors, including combat experiences, sexual assault, serious injury, accidents, natural disasters, ongoing abuse, the unexpected death of a loved one, and exposure to violent crime.

Designed for professionals in a broad range of roles and settings, this basic-level course details the history of the PTSD diagnosis and provides current information on the disorder including DSM-5 diagnostic criteria, etiology, incidence, assessment approaches, and effective therapeutic treatment methods. Because not everyone who experiences traumatic stressors is affected by PTSD, the course also describes the role of risk and resiliency factors, such as comorbid mental illness and the type and severity of the exposure, on an individual’s development of PTSD.  The course includes an extensive resources list and case vignettes that highlight assessment reports, tips for documentation, and treatment plan examples to assist practitioners treating PTSD.

Chronic Pain Management: A Psychosocial Perspective

Price: $29.95 Hours:3 Contact Hours
Item # B4200  

This comprehensive basic-level course provides social workers and behavioral health specialists with a fresh perspective on chronic pain. It highlights the nature and scope of chronic pain, discusses basic skills for effective assessment, and describes nonpharmacological adjunctive treatments for chronic pain and related problems. Case scenarios are used throughout the course to describe client experiences with pain, highlight sample therapist and client dialogues, and demonstrate the application of various treatments.  The course opens with a discussion of the elements of pain, which include biological pain, pain perception, cognitive-emotional responses, and sociopolitical context. After examining the physiological principles that underlie pain, the course distinguishes acute from chronic pain and explains the factors that contribute to pain becoming chronic. The impact of chronic pain on physical functioning, health, and quality of life is examined. 

Participants will learn about the prevalence of pain, racial and ethnic differences, age differences, and the social cost of pain. The course describes types of pain, including musculoskeletal, headaches, and neuropathic pain, and the effects of pain, such as physical activity limitations, sleep disruption, fatigue, depression, irritability, and disruptions in family and social support. Selected assessment tools and interview procedures are described, and assessment questionnaires and sample reporting tool forms are provided for use with clients. Assessment techniques include the clinical interview, the brief clinical interview, and self-report instruments. The discussion of pharmacological treatment of pain includes information on medication misuse, addiction, and medication adherence. Participants will also learn about complementary and alternative medicine approaches and psychosocial treatments, such as feedback-based intervention, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and relaxation training. Barriers to effective pain care are discussed, such as provider attitudes and training, insurance coverage, and geographic and regulatory barriers. The appendices include numerous pain assessment tools and an outline of a typical cognitive-behavioral therapy intervention for chronic pain.
