Almost all mental health professionals, regardless of their work settings, will at some point in their career encounter child abuse or neglect situations. By law, mental health professionals are mandated to report suspected child abuse and neglect. There is a wide range of issues pertaining to child abuse/neglect intervention, which includes identification, assessment, reporting, and treatment. For these reasons, it is critical that mental health professionals be informed about the principles and strategies helpful in these areas.

In five sections this course covers historical perspective, an overview, four types of child abuse, therapist's responses (including reporting, assessment, and therapy), and issues of countertransference.

Author: Min Hae Cho, M.S.W.

Target Audience: Introductory and Intermediate; LMFTs, Social Workers, LPCCs, Nurses, Substance Abuse Counselors, and other mental health clinicians.

  1. Identify and clinically assess for the four types of child abuse: physical abuse, sexual abuse, emotional abuse and neglect.

Clients often present with concerns about their sexuality, but this area may be difficult to discuss for both the therapist and the client. This curriculum provides a thorough review of historical perspectives, physical aspects of sexuality, and typical clinical issues among men and women. Definitions of sexual disorders are discussed from a psychosocial and diagnostic perspective. Issues related to sexual abuse in children and rape are discussed. This course also includes issues related to social definitions of gender (i.e., notions of masculinity and femininity) and their impact on personal identity, marriage and feminist-informed therapy. Issues pertinent to "nonconventional" forms of sex and sexual identity are also described, including issues related to the LGBT community and nonmonogamy.

As longevity and quality of life continue to improve, the population of seniors in the United States will exert increasing influence on the healthcare market, including psychological and long-term medical care services. The conditions associated with older age, such as Alzheimer’s disease and chronic illness, have become salient in healthcare provision for the elderly, and often take priority when long-term care begins.

However, often overlooked are the emotional and social challenges which elders face, which can compound the negative outcomes of their physical health. Depression, isolation, and grief, for example, are common among the elderly and can interfere with their ability to thrive with long-term illness. Very importantly too, the long-term care of elders includes caregivers, often women and family, who bear a substantial emotional burden. Their depression, conflicts and guilt can make the process and decision-making challenging, and without treatment, put them and the elders at risk. This course will discuss how therapists can assist elders and their families cope with the emotional and transitional issues associated with long-term care. Accommodations of therapy, counter-transference and assessment techniques for therapists will be addressed. Attention is also given to social issues and cultural diversity, treatment modalities including formal care, informal care and spiritual approaches, and the legal aspects of family and team-caregiving.
