    MHA 2002: The Suicidal Client (10 Hours)
    In this module, student will learn that suicide is not a diagnosis or a disorder; it is a behavior. The Judeo-Christian belief has been that life is a gift from God and that taking it is strictly forbidden (Carroll-Ghosh,Victor, & Bourgeois, 2007). A recent, and more secular, view has influenced how some individuals view suicide in our society. Growing support for an individual’s right to choose death over pain has been evidenced. Some individuals are striving to advance the cause of physician-assisted suicides for the terminally ill. Can suicide be a rational act? Most people in our society do not yet believe that it can. Approximately 95 percent of all persons who commitor attempt suicide have a diagnosed mental disorder (Sadock&Sadock, 2007). This module explores suicide from an epidemiological and etiological perspective. Care of the suicidal client is presented in the context of the nursing process.

    MHA 2006: Mental Health/Mental Illness: Historical and Theoretical Concepts (8 hours)
    This module will look into the consideration of mental health and mental illness and its basis in the cultural beliefs of the society in which the behavior takes place. Some cultures are quite liberal in the range of behaviors that are considered acceptable, whereas others have very little tolerance for behaviors that deviate from the cultural norms. The module will look into how the study of the history of psychiatric care reveals some shocking truths about past treatment of mentally ill individuals. Many were kept in control by means that today could be considered less than humane. This module will deal with the evolution of psychiatric care from ancient times to the present.
    MHA 2007: Ethical and Legal Issues in Psychiatric/ Mental Health Nursing (10 hours)
    Healthcare Workers are constantly faced with the challenge of making difficult decisions regarding good and evil or life and death. Complex situations frequently arise in caring for individuals with mental illness, and mental health workers are held to the highest level of legal and ethical accountability in their professional practice. This module provides a reference for the student the basic ethical and legal conceptsand their relationship to psychiatric/mental health. A discussion of ethical theory is presented as a foundation upon which ethical decisions may be made. The American Nurses’ Association (ANA, 2001) has established a code of ethics for mental health workers to use as a framework within which to make ethical choices and decisions. Because legislation determines what is right or good within a society, legal issues pertaining to psychiatric/mental health workers are also discussed in this module. Definitions are presented, along with rights of psychiatric clients of which mental health workers must be aware. Mental health competencyand client care accountability are compromised when the mental health workers has inadequate knowledge about the laws that regulate the practice of nursing.
    MHA 2008: Relationship Development (10 hours)
    The mental health worker–client relationship is the foundation upon which psychiatric course is established. It is a relationship in which both participants must recognize each other as unique and important human beings. It is also a relationship in which mutual learning occurs. It is likely that the nursing process is educative and therapeutic when nurse and patient can come to know and to respect each other, as persons who are alike, and yet, different, as persons who share in the solution of problems. This module examines the role of the psychiatric mental health worker and the use of self as the therapeutic tool in the caring of clients with emotional illness. Phases of the therapeutic relationship are explored and conditions essential to the development of a therapeutic relationship are discussed. The importance of values clarification in the development of self-awareness is also emphasized in this module.
    MHA 2009: Promoting Self-Esteem (20 HOURS)
    McKay and Fanning (2003) describe self-esteem as an emotional sine qua non, a component that is essential for psychological survival. They state, “Without some measure of self-worth, life can be enormously painful, with many basic needs going unmet.” The awareness of self (i.e., the ability to form an identity and then attach a value to it) is an important differentiating factor between humans and other animals. This capacity for judgment, then, becomes a contributing factor in disturbances of self-esteem.The promotion of self-esteem is about stopping self judgments.It is about helping individuals change how they perceive and feel about themselves. This module will describe the developmental progression and the verbal and behavioral manifestations of self-esteem. In this module, the student will learn the concept of boundaries and its relationship to self-esteem. The mental health support worker care of clients with disturbances in self-esteem is described in the context of the nursing process
    MHA 2010: Anger/Aggression Management (20 Hours)
    In this module, anger and anger management will be addressed. Anger need not be a negative expression. It is a normal human emotion that, when handled appropriately and expressed assertively, can provide an individual with a positive force to solve problems and make decisions concerning life situations. Anger becomes a problem when it is not expressed and when it is expressed aggressively. Violence occurs when individuals lose control of their anger. This module will address the concepts of anger and aggression. Predisposing factors to the maladaptive expression of anger will be discussed, and the nursing process as a vehicle for delivery of care to assist clients in the management of anger and aggression will also be addressed.
    MHA 2011: Crisis Intervention (20 Hours)
    In this module, student will learn the following: Stressful situations are a part of everyday life. Any stressful situation can precipitate a crisis. Crises result in a disequilibrium from which many individuals require assistance to recover. Crisis intervention requires problem-solving skills that are often diminished by the level of anxiety accompanying disequilibrium. Assistance with problem solving during the crisis period preserves self-esteem and promotesgrowth with resolution.

    This module examines the phases in the development of a crisis and the types of crises that occur in people’s lives. The methodology of crisis intervention, including the role of the mental health support worker, is explored.

    MHA 2012: Intervention with Families (25 hours)
    In this module the meaning of a family will be defined. Wright and Leahey (2005) propose the following definition: a family is who they say they are. Many family forms exist within society today, such as the biological family of procreation, the nuclear family that incorporates one or more members of the extended family (family of origin), the sole-parent family, the stepfamily, the communal family, and thehomosexual couples or family. Labeling individuals as “families” based on their group compositionmay not be the best way, however. Instead, family consideration may be more appropriatelydetermined based on attributes of affection, strong emotional ties, a sense of belonging, anddurability of membership (Wright &Leahey, 2005). Many mental health support workers have interactions with family members on a daily basis. A client’s illness or hospitalization affects all members of the family, and the support workers must understand how to work with the family as a unit, knowing that family members can have a profound effect on the client’s healing process. Mental health support workershould be familiar with the tasks associated with adaptive family functioning. With this knowledge, they are able to assess family interaction and recognize problems when they arise. They can provide support to families with an ill member and make referrals to other professionals when assistance is required to restore adaptive functioning. Most mental health support workers may be involved in family therapy. Family therapy is broadly defined as “a form of intervention in which members of a family are assisted to identify and change problematic, maladaptive, self-defeating, repetitive relationship patterns” (Goldenberg & Goldenberg, 2005). Family therapy has a strong theoretical focus, and a number of conceptual approaches have been introduced and suggested as frameworks for this intervention. This module explores the stages of family development and compares the “typical” family within various subcultures. Characteristics of adaptive family functioning and behaviors that interfere with this adaptation are discussed. Theoretical components of selected therapeutic approaches are described. Instructions for construction of a family genogram are included. This module will also address the stages of family development
    MHA 2013: Therapeutic Groups (40 Hours)
    In this module the student will learn that human beings are complex creatures who share their activities of daily living with various groupsof people. Sampson and Marthas (1990) state: We are biological organisms possessing qualitiesshared with all living systems and with others of our species. We are psychological beings with distinctlyhuman capabilities for thought, feeling, and action. We are also social beings, who function aspart of the complex webs that link us with other people. The student will be taught that Mental Healthcare professionals not only share theirpersonal lives with groups of people but also encounter multiple group situations in their professional operations, such as in team conferences, committee meetings, grand rounds, and in-service sessions. In psychiatry, student will learn that work with clients and families often take the form of groups. Withgroup work, not only does the mental health worker have the opportunity to reach out to a greater number of people at one time, but those individuals also
    MHA 3000:Delirium,Dementia,and Amnestic Disorders(25 hours)
    In this module, the student will learn that cognitive disorders include those in which a clinically significant deficit in cognition or memory exists, representing a significant change from a previous level of functioning.The student will also be taught how the DSM-IV-TR (American Psychiatric Association[APA], 2000) describes the etiology of these disorders as a general medical condition, a substance, or a combination of these factors.These disorders were previously identified as organic mental syndromes and disorders. This module will presents predisposing factors, clinical symptoms, and the interventions for care of clients with delirium, dementia, and amnestic disorders. The student will learn that the objective is to provide these individuals with the dignity and quality of life they deserve, while offering guidance and support to their families or primary caregiver.
    MHA 3001: Schizophrenia and Other Psychotic Disorders(25 hours)
    Of all the mental illnesses that cause suffering in society,schizophrenia probably is responsible for lengthier hospitalizations,greater chaos in family life, more exorbitant costs to individuals and governments, and more fears than any other. Because it is such an enormous threat to life and happiness and because its causes are an unsolved puzzle, it has probably been studied more than any other mental disorder. Potential for suicide is a major concern among patients with schizophrenia. This module will explore the various theories of predisposing factors that have been implicated in the development of schizophrenia. Symptomatology associated with different diagnostic categories of the disorder is discussed. Care will be presented in the context of the six steps of the nursing process. Various dimensions of medical treatment will be explored.
    MHA 3002: Mood Disorders (25 hours)
    In this module, depression will be discussed to be likely the oldest and still one of the most frequently diagnosed psychiatric illnesses. Symptoms of depression will be described. An occasional bout with the “blues,” a feeling of sadness or downheartedness, is common among healthy people and considered to be a normal response to everyday disappointments in life. These episodes are short lived as the individual adapts to the loss, change, or failure (real or perceived) that has been experienced. Pathological depression occurs when adaptation is ineffective. This module focuses on the consequences of complicated grieving as it is manifested by mood disorders, which can be classified as either depressive or bipolar. A historical perspective and epidemiological statistics related to mood disorders are presented. Predisposing factors that have been implicated in the etiology of mood disorders provide a framework for studying the dynamics of depression and bipolar disorder. The implications of mood disorders relevant to individuals of various developmental stages are discussed. An explanation of the symptomatology is presented as background knowledge for assessing the client with a mood disorder. Nursing care as it relates to mental health is described in the context of the six steps of the nursing process. Various medical treatment modalities are explored.
    MHA 3003: Anxiety Disorders
    In this module, student will understand that individuals face anxiety on a daily basis. Anxiety, whichprovides the motivation for achievement, is a necessaryforce for survival. The term anxiety is often used interchangeablywith the word stress; however, they are not thesame. Stress, or more properly, a stressor, is an externalpressure that is brought to bear on the individual.Anxiety is the subjective emotional response to that stressor. Student will also learn that anxiety may be distinguished from fear in that the formeris an emotional process, whereas fear is a cognitiveone. Fear involves the intellectual appraisal of a threateningstimulus; anxiety involves the emotional response tothat appraisal.

    This module also focuses on disorders that are characterized by exaggerated and often disabling anxiety reactions.Historical aspects and epidemiological statistics are presented.Predisposing factors that have been implicated in the etiology of anxiety disorders provide a framework for studying the dynamics of phobias, obsessivecompulsive disorder (OCD), generalized anxiety disorder, panic

    disorder, post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and other anxiety disorders are also highlighted. Various theories of causation are presented, although it is most likely that a combination of factors contribute to the etiology of anxiety disorders.The neurobiology of anxiety disorders is presented.An explanation of the symptomatology is presented as background knowledge for assessing the client with an anxiety disorder. Client care is described in the context of the nursing process. Various treatment modalities are explored.

    MHA 3004: Substance-Related Disorders (50 hours)
    In this module, student will be introduced to Substance-related disorders and the two groups of substance-related disorders:the substance-use disorders (dependence and abuse) and the substance-induced disorders (intoxication, withdrawal,delirium, dementia, amnesia, psychosis, mood disorder, anxiety disorder, sexual dysfunction, and sleep disorders).This module will discuss dependence, abuse, intoxication,and withdrawal.
    MHA 3005: Basic Pharmacology: Safe Medication Administration (10 hours)
    MHA 3005 will presents the students with an overview of drug therapy and provides students with a basic working knowledge of self administration. This module will also highlight how drugs are processed, major drug errors, psychotropic medications and what the health care worker is accountable for with respect to drug administration.
    MHA 3006: Types of Drugs & Substances Abused (10 hours)
    In this module, the student will learn that people abuse substances such as drugs, alcohol, and tobacco for varied and complicated reasons, but it is clear that our society pays a significant cost. The toll for this abuse can be seen in our hospitals and emergency departments through direct damage to health by substance abuse and its link to physical trauma. Jails and prisons tally daily the strong connection between crime and drug dependence and abuse. Although use of some drugs such as cocaine has declined, use of other drugs such as heroin and “club drugs” has increased.Finding effective treatment for and prevention of substance abuse has been difficult. Through research, we now have a better understanding of the behavior. Studies have made it clear that drug education and prevention aimed at children and adolescents offers the best chance to curb abuse nationally.

    Abused substances produce some form of intoxication that alters judgment, perception, attention, or physical control.Many substances can bring on withdrawal, an effect caused by cessation or reduction in the amount of the substance used. Withdrawal can range from mild anxiety to seizures and hallucinations. Drug overdose may also cause death.

    MHA 3007: Prevention of Alcohol & other drugs problems (5 hours)
    Preventing drug abuse and excessive alcohol use increases people’s chances of living long, healthy, and productive lives. Excessive alcohol use includes binge drinking (i.e., five or more drinks during a single occasion for men, four or more drinks during a single occasion for women), underage drinking, and drinking while pregnant. Drug abuse includes any inappropriate use of pharmaceuticals (both prescription and over-the counter drugs) and any use of illicit drugs. Alcohol and other drug use can impede judgment and lead to harmful risk-taking behavior. Preventing drug abuse and excessive alcohol use improves quality of life; reduces crime and criminal justice expenses; reduces motor vehicle crashes and fatalities; and lowers health care costs for acute and chronic conditions.
    MHA 3008: Evidence-Based Substance Abuse Treatment (10 hours)
    The Evidence-Based Practices (EBP) is used to prevent and treat mental and substance use disorders. EBPs integrate clinical expertise; expert opinion; external scientific evidence; and client, patient, and caregiver perspectives so that providers can offer high-quality services that reflect the interests, values, needs, and choices of the individuals served.
    MHA 3009:Integrating Treatment for Co-Occurring Disorder (10 hours)
    This module provides practice principles about integrated treatment for co-occurring disorders, an approach that helps people recover by offering mental health and substance abuse services at the same time and in one setting. The module also offers suggestions from successful programs. Why are co-occurring disorders so common among teenagers and adults with a history of alcoholism or drug abuse? This question may seem to have obvious answers, but the relationship between mental illness and substance abuse is actually very complicated. Anyone who has lived with unmanageable emotions, chronic depression or uncontrollable anxiety knows how tempting it is to numb these feelings somehow. Self-medicating with tranquilizers, booze, meth or painkillers might seem like the fastest, most effective way to get relief from mental illness.But self-medication is only one of the theories behind the relationship between mental health and substance abuse.
    MHA 3010:Spirituality in Substance Abuse/Dependence Treatment (5 hours)
    This module confirms that spirituality can be a catalyst of recovery initiation, a protective shield in early recovery and an increasingly significant dimension of long-term recovery maintenance. As such, spirituality is a valid area to explore in the assessment and service planning processes. Clients’ understandings of spirituality exhibit significant shifts in how spirituality is defined and utilized over the course of recovery. Addiction counselors would be well advised to support each client’s unique, stage-dependent interpretation of spirituality (with or without belief in a higher power) and to approach spirituality within the larger framework of life meaning and purpose. The role of spirituality in recovery initiation requires that we remain open to the power of sudden, trans-formative change. Many clients talk about a “turning point” in their lives in spiritual terms. Such experiences often occur in the context of near death experiences (from overdoses, suicide attempts, violent victimization), HIV/AIDS, addiction-related deaths of close friends and incarcerations. Addiction counselors can play an important role in enhancing the enduring influence of such experiences. The evolving role of spirituality in long-term recovery dramatically underscores that recovery is much more than the removal of alcohol and other drugs from an otherwise unchanged life. Early recovery is marked by the stressors of disengaging from alcohol and other drugs and cleaning up the debris of one’s addiction. The successful resolution of these tasks is often followed by existential panic: “I’m sober. Now what do I do?” (Chapman, 1991; White, 1996). Moving through this crisis involves a transformational journey marked by major changes in character, values, identity, interpersonal relationships and lifestyle. Spirituality is a potential sense-making framework through which these transitions can be planned and retrospectively understood via story reconstruction. Addiction counselors can play an important role as a guide in this process and help each client construct a recovery-enhancing narrative of his or her life.
    This course introduces students to a wide variety of formal and informal community support services that work together to enhance the quality of life for people with mental issues & addiction and their families. Methods of researching and assessing services are addressed. It also introduces the competencies involved in successfully fulfilling the role of Mental health & Addictions Service Worker and encourages students to identify with and demonstrate professional ethics and behavior.
