- Psychopharmacology in Behavioral Health Medicine 4
Course release date: 10/09/2023
About the Course
Clinical psychopharmacology has evolved over the past decade. The primary drive for its global adoption in the medical community stems from its unique objective of exploring the physiological influence of medications on the behavior of animals, and by extension humans. In addition, the number of psychopharmacological studies exploring the psychotropic nature of drugs and the possibilities of instituting the findings from these studies in primary care settings has doubled. This has birthed the emergence of a strong link between neurosciences and psychiatry, founded solidly on the biological knowledge of neuronal connectivity, neurotransmitter physiology, drug mechanism of action, neuronal circuitry, and psychotropic drug targets in the brain.
- Suicide Risk in Adults: Assessment and Intervention, 2nd Edition 3Course Release Date: 5/10/22
About the Course
The purpose of this course is to assist clinicians in understanding factors that contribute to suicidal behavior, conducting comprehensive suicide risk assessments, and engaging patients in brief, empirically-supported interventions to reduce risk of death. This course meets an increasing demand of many mental health professionals seeking information about working with suicidal clients and conducting empirically-supported suicide risk assessments. This intermediate-level course is designed for social workers, mental health counselors, marriage and family therapists, educators, community-based program administrators, providers, and psychologists. The course will cover major risk factors, demographics and warning signs for suicidal behavior, as well as provide guidance on clinical risk assessment and options for intervention. Although the information presented here is useful to many mental health providers, no continuing education course can provide all the information that may be required in working with each individual who comes for help. It is therefore important that mental health providers consult knowledgeable colleagues, review the most recent articles and books on the topic of suicide, read and understand the risk-management practices of their agency, and maintain awareness of applicable local and state laws concerning the management and referral of suicidal persons. References and resources for those interested in pursuing further education on this topic are provided at the end of the course.
