Binge Eating Disorder: Clinical Implications and Considerations

Price: $29.95 Hours:3 Contact Hours
Item # B4183  

Many people experience episodes during which they consume extremely large amounts of food over a short period of time while simultaneously feeling an inability to stop or control their eating. These experiences are referred to as binge eating episodes or binge episodes. Although binge episodes can be a symptom of multiple psychological disorders, frequent episodes of binge eating that are not a result of these other disorders are now classified under the separate diagnosis of binge eating disorder (BED) in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual for Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-5); American Psychiatric Association [APA], 2013). BED is linked to multiple health problems for the individual, including poor physical health and impaired psychological and social functioning.

Because many professionals working in clinical settings are unfamiliar with the specific diagnostic criteria or clinical considerations for BED, it is commonly misdiagnosed as another eating disorder, such as bulimia nervosa, anorexia nervosa, or eating disorder not otherwise specified. However, the treatment approaches for BED can differ from those used for other eating disorders, and such a misdiagnosis could affect the course of treatment and treatment success for a client.

This basic-level course is designed for healthcare professionals in various clinical practice settings including psychologists, social workers, nurses, marriage and family therapists, and mental health counselors who may come into contact with individuals exhibiting BED. This course provides information to help clinicians better identify and treat individuals with the disorder. This course provides the most current information about BED, including material on the differential diagnosis of BED from related disorders, potential causes of BED, associated features of BED, negative health implications of BED, and pharmacological and psychological options for treating BED in various settings.

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.

Ethics in Mental Health Treatment

Price: $29.95 Hours:3 Contact Hours
Item # B4130  

Mental health professionals are charged with providing services in an ethical manner, where ethical means in accordance with professional principles and standards of behavior. Ethics are profession-centric and differ from values, which are person-centric, or morals, which are society-centric. Ethics are used to define what is important to a profession or organization in how it conducts its business. Professional practices related to the delivery of mental health care are governed by various professional organizations, most of which are organized by practice discipline, academic degree, and/or license type. Each organization has developed a professional code of ethics and conduct by which its members are required to abide. Ethical codes include aspirational principles that describe the ethical ideals central to the organization’s mission, as well as mandatory ethics that set minimum requirements for acceptable and unacceptable behavior. Given the complexities of the human condition, it is not surprising that situations arise in providing mental health services that require the professional to make decisions based on competing ideals and principles. When a decision involves compromising one or more ethical standards, practitioners are faced with an ethical dilemma.

The information presented in this basic-level course applies to the ethical provision of mental health services to adults across a variety of practice settings such as outpatient community mental health clinics, private practice settings, and inpatient psychiatric care. The course is intended for healthcare professionals, including social workers, mental health counselors, marriage and family therapists, psychologists, advanced practice and psychiatric nurses.

Social workers will receive 3 (Ethics) continuing education clock hours for participating in this course.

Counselors will receive 3 NBCC clock hours.

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.

Intimate partner violence includes physical violence, rape and sexual assaults, as well as economic, emotional, and psychological abuse including coercion, intimidation, stalking, and use of technology to perpetrate abuse. Intimate partner violence occurs all over the world and is present in all social, economic, ethnic, racial, religious, and age groups. Intimate partner violence has serious consequences for the victims including death and injury, commitment of violent acts of self-defense, legal problems, and compromised mental health, economic status, and social isolation. The high prevalence rates of intimate partner violence in the US have led to various policies and expert recommendations designed to better detect and intervene with intimate partner violence. Human service, mental health, and healthcare professionals will likely, knowingly or unknowingly, work with victims and perpetrators of intimate partner violence and are in unique positions to offer assistance. 

This basic-level course presents clear descriptions of this multi-faceted problem and sensitizes the learner to the impact of intimate partner violence on the individual and community.
