Credit(s): 3

In this course, students gain an understanding of the foundations of clinical mental health and substance abuse counseling, the people served, and the history and current state of public and private systems of care. One focus is an understanding of co-occurring mental health and addictive disorders, across the lifespan, and their impact on the lives of people diagnosed with these disabling conditions. This course also provides an overview of emerging issues in mental health and substance abuse counseling, policy and practice in behavioral health and integrated health care; current approaches to prevention, comprehensive treatment and support; the impact of managed care; community-building, education, advocacy, and systems change. Topics are addressed from multiple perspectives, with a strong emphasis on the perspective of service recipients and their families, as well as service providers, policy makers, and the community at large.
