1. Dementia Awareness: Improve Your Clinical Practice When Working With People With Dementia

The purpose of this Course on dementia is to improve your clinical practice when working with people with dementia.  It seeks to do this by considering seven distinct but interrelated areas that, collectively, will give you a greater degree of awareness of dementia and what you can do to help.  These units seek to address the following questions:

  • What is it like for someone to have dementia?
  • What exactly is dementia?
  • What should our practice be like?
  • Can we communicate with people with dementia?  If so, how?
  • What can we do to help people with dementia?
  • How can we help family and friends caring for a loved one with dementia?
  • What are the legal and ethical issues of working with people with dementia?

2. Behavioural Therapy: Learn About Modern Behavioural Therapy

Andrew Salter who founded modern behavioural therapy used conceptions of excitation and inhibition as the basis for treatment of the neurotic. When excitatory forces dominate, people are action-orientated and emotionally free.

They meet life on their own terms. The neurotic, on the other hand, always suffers from an excess of inhibition. Through this course the student will learn how Behavioural Therapy employs mental and physical exercise to build and strengthen the excitatory processes, creating a new balance where they can dominate the brain functioning and overcome problematic behaviour.

3. Mental Health and Social Care: Learn The Basic Values And Principles Underlying Anti-Mentalist Practice

By the end of this course you will be able to demonstrate an understanding of the basic values and principles underlying anti-mentalist practice.

This course aims to enable you to critically appraise the major existing theories, models and treatment methods in this field and to critically evaluate the social model of mental health.

You will also be able to promote the users' perspective in mental health services, showing awareness of how to manage areas of conflict.
