Ethics and Professional Wills is a new 1-hour online continuing education (CE) course that guides psychologists through the process of developing a professional will.

This course provides practical information and resources on how to meet the APA Ethics Code standards regarding pre-planning for the eventual expected or unexpected closure of your professional practice, while being sensitive to understandable possible anxiety and/or resistance surrounding this topic. Business strategies, including sample forms ready to be personalized for your use, are offered.

Clinical considerations are addressed in discussions of how to best meet patients’ needs during the termination of your work with them and their possible transfers to new clinicians, possible countertransference responses you may experience during expected closings and preparing for unexpected closings, and how to balance patients’ and your own needs during planned temporary or permanent business closings such as a maternity leave or retirement. Issues in addressing possible incapacitation of the psychologist are reviewed.

Finally, pre-planning for possible unexpected practice closings, as would occur after the sudden incapacitation or death of a psychologist, are discussed in detail, including how to develop a professional will, the designation of a professional executor, and arranging for confidential storage and disposition of patient records, following ethical and regulatory guidelines. A sample and fill-in-the-blank professional will are provided, facilitating your completion of a basic professional will by the end of the course.

Schizophrenia: Understanding & Treating

Schizophrenia: Understanding & Treating is a new 3-hour online continuing education (CE) course that provides clinicians with practical guidance in understanding and treating schizophrenia.

Schizophrenia: Understanding & Treating is a new 3-hour online continuing education (CE) course that provides clinicians with practical guidance in understanding and treating schizophrenia.

Schizophrenia is a complex condition that is poorly understood by the general public and by many mental health clinicians, who receive little training on the condition. It’s important to understand because it’s the most debilitating and costly of all adult psychiatric illnesses.

To start, we’ll review the definition of schizophrenia, provide examples of the most common symptoms, detail its relationship to other psychotic disorders, and discuss the most common co-occurring conditions. Then we’ll examine historical and current understandings of what causes schizophrenia, review the risk factors for schizophrenia, and discuss how schizophrenia impacts the brain and the person more globally — this is where we’ll talk about genetics, neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, neurodevelopment, and substance use.

Lastly, we’ll talk about evidence-based treatment approaches to schizophrenia, beginning with a discussion of different treatment models and then reviewing how treatment plans are developed before finally discussing a host of interventions, including medication, skills training, psychotherapy, and family interventions.

Nursing Home Resident – New CE Course

The Nursing Home Resident: A Holistic Approach is a new 1-hour online CE course that thoughtfully examines many facets of providing care for older adults.

As our population ages we need to create the appropriate environment in our long-term care facilities addressing the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual dimensions of each resident. Mental health professionals frequently provide treatment for nursing home residents and information for their families.

The Nursing Home Resident will increase awareness about the needs of this population and the continuum of services that are offered in long-term care facilities. Sections include discussions about normal aging, steps in finding a facility that best meets each individual’s needs, the place of grief and loss in the lives of older adults and their families, and dealing with death and dying. It will expand healthcare professionals’ knowledge about issues that are rarely addressed but that are essential if one expects to provide the best of care and quality of life to older adults.

Human Trafficking: Identification and Intervention is a 1-hour online continuing education (CE/CEU) course that details the many facets of human trafficking as well as how to identify and provide intervention to victims/survivors.

Human trafficking, commonly discussed under the two broad categories of sexual trafficking and labor trafficking, is a pervasive public health issue, both globally and in the United States. This course will examine the various forms of human trafficking, including the commercial sexual exploitation and trafficking of domestic minors and children who are foreign nationals, the commercial sexual exploitation and trafficking of adults, and the labor trafficking of adults and minors. The 25 distinct businesses in which human trafficking have been identified to occur will be explored. Estimates of the prevalence and scope of these crimes will also be discussed.

High Functioning Autism in Children – New CE Course

High Functioning Autism in Children is a new 4-hour online continuing education (CE/CEU) course that provides strategies to help children with HFA navigate the “neurotypical” world with success. 

High Functioning Autism in Children is a new 4-hour online continuing education (CE/CEU) course that provides strategies to help children with HFA navigate the "neurotypical" world with success.

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, as of April 2018, the prevalence of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is increasing. This increase includes children on the higher end of the spectrum; those who have what is informally referred to as “high functioning” ASD. In this course we will use the term “HFA” and explore and discuss why children and adolescents with HFA behave the way they do.

Professionals will learn strategies for helping parents manage their child with HFA at home, particularly toward learning the skills required to set themselves up for success, ease transitions, and prevent meltdowns. Interventions for school success will encompass organizational skills and strategies to improve language, narratives, reading comprehension, writing, and attention skills.

Finally, children with HFA struggle socially, particularly with understanding the unspoken rules of social situations. Professionals will learn to assist children with the development of social skills, which include conversational skills so that they may better relate to their peers, and how to interpret the hidden curriculum in many different environments. Professionals can help their clients discover their strengths, while harnessing their capabilities, allowing them to navigate the “neurotypical” world with success.

In this webinar, Lisa M. Schab, LCSW, a practicing psychotherapist and international best-selling author, will discuss the symptoms of an anxiety disorder, anxiety management skills adults can practice with youth, and ways adults can encourage teens to be a part of choosing treatment options.

IEP Goals New CE Guide

IEP Goals: S.M.A.R.T.E.R. STEPS® Guide is a new 2-hour online continuing education (CE/CEU) course that provides a framework for writing legally compliant IEP goals.

IEP Goals: S.M.A.R.T.E.R. STEPS® Guide is a new 2-hour online continuing education (CE/CEU) course that provides a framework for writing legally compliant IEP goals.

Individualized Education Program (IEP) meetings give parents and professionals a chance to work together to design an IEP for children with learning disabilities who have been determined eligible for special education. The goals for academic achievement and functional performance set for each child are the core of the IEP. Goals represent what you and the other IEP team members think the child will be able to accomplish in their area(s) of disability – academic, developmental, and functional – in a year’s time. Annual goals must be written in measurable terms. 

This course will focus on teaching professionals how to write legally compliant IEP goals using the S.M.A.R.T.E.R. Steps framework. These steps contain a variety of time-saving tips to help special education professionals understand the legal jargon related to IEP goal development. Examples will be provided to demonstrate the strategy so that participants can have a bank of goals for reference. Real scenarios will be problem-solved within the framework, so participants can have practical advice to share with their IEP teams.

Research on the need for compliant IEP goals will be presented based on the US Deptartment of Education’s findings from the Results Driven Accountability measures. Implications of these findings will be discussed as they relate to federal funding being tied to test results and progress on IEP goals. Recent court decisions will also be reviewed to emphasize the importance of developing compliant IEP goals. Course #21-35 | 2019 | 44 pages | 16 posttest questions

Gaming Disorder and Internet Addiction is a new 1-hour online continuing education (CE) course that examines the controversial mental health condition of gaming disorder, and the broader concept of internet addiction.

Parents, educators, and health care professionals have all expressed concerns about the proliferation of electronic devices and their negative effects throughout our society.

These actions have raised a number of related legitimate and controversial issues, which professionals, parents, and societal leaders must address. This course will review the latest developments in this area and some of the pros and cons of those issues.

Gaming disorder itself may be regarded as a subarea of the broader concept of internet addiction.
