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.

New Jersey Social Workers - This course has been pre-approved for 3 Ethics credits by the Assoc. of Social Work Boards (NJ CE course approval program provider #52).

Clinical Neuropsychology: Applications in Practice, 2nd Edition

Item # B4230  

Release Date: July 11, 2016

Clinical neuropsychology is a field that combines skills and perspectives from neurobiology, clinical psychology, neuropsychiatry, and behavioral neurology. This informative and practical course discusses what happens during a typical neuropsychological evaluation, how and when to make a referral to a neuropsychologist, and how to read a neuropsychological report. The functional organization of the brain is clearly described with accompanying illustrations that are useful for clients and practitioners. The discussion of neuroanatomy includes the brainstem, cerebellum, cerebral hemispheres, hypothalamus and thalamus, limbic system, and cerebral cortex. Brain circuitry is described, including the language circuit and brain damage. Participants will learn about the components of a neuropsychological evaluation, such as reviewing patient records; conducting a clinical interview; selecting, administering, scoring, and interpreting tests; making behavioral observations; writing reports; providing feedback; and educating clients, families, and other team members.

This intermediate-level course describes the etiology, course, and prevalence of common disorders across the lifespan and discusses their diagnosis, assessment, and treatment. The course discusses disorders in pediatric neuropsychology, such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, specific learning disorders, autism spectrum disorder, and psychiatric comorbidities. Social workers, counselors, therapists, and psychologists who treat adults and geriatric patients will benefit from discussions of traumatic brain injury, multiple sclerosis, and Alzheimer’s disease.
