Mental health providers play a pivotal role in promoting emotional, as well as physical, adjustment to stress – which may include the demands of normal aging to enhancing patient and caregiver adaptation to medical illness.
Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) February 10, 2015
HealthForumOnline (HFO), a premier provider of nationally-approved online continuing education (CE) focusing on health psychology and behavioral medicine topics, announces the addition of its 100th online CE course for mental health professionals. Providers can choose from HFO’s 20 topic categories now containing over 100 online CE courses for psychologists, social workers, counselors, and other allied health professionals -- all convenient, cost-effective, theory- and evidence-based, and tailored to provide the optimal benefit for mental healthcare providers.
“HealthForumOnline understands that mental health providers play a pivotal role in promoting emotional, as well as physical, adjustment to stress – which may include the demands of normal aging to enhancing patient and caregiver adaptation to medical illness”, said Dr. Michelle Rodoletz, the co-founder of HFO and Director of the Continuing Education Program. “Our CE program is a perfect way for providers to meet the current challenges in healthcare since HFO course topics include issues related to ethical care, aging/gerontology, bereavement/grief, chemical dependency/substance abuse, cancer adaptation, diabetes and other chronic disease management, HIV/AIDs, pain assessment and management, impact of Alzheimer’s on patients and caregivers, TBI and other neuropsychology conditions, long-term care, trauma/PTSD, LGBT, women’s health, assessing and preventing domestic/partner violence, autism and other pediatric behavioral medicine disorders, just to cite a few. Further, our courses span the care continuum — from prevention, to assessment, through treatment, chronic care management, and palliative care/end-of-life issues.”
Time management and cost-effectiveness are two important concerns for health providers in their efforts to meet licensure requirement needs and to stay informed of the emerging literature. Further, to truly be effective, providers must translate this information into applied clinical practice. HealthForumOnline offers a fast and convenient way for busy mental health professionals to improve patient-based knowledge, clinical skills, and earn nationally-approved (APA, ASWB, NBCC) CE credits anywhere they have Internet access. All of the 100 online CE courses at HFO are updated and maintained on a regular basis to offer state-of-the-science theory- and evidence-based education.
HFO’s courses are available in an online format, as well as in downloadable, transportable PDFs. Mental health professionals are able to access and complete courses at their own pace, on their own schedule, anywhere there is access to the Internet. Professionals can print their own online continuing education certificates to meet licensure deadlines. And since HFO offers free access to course updates even after course completion, choosing HFO to meet CE licensure requirements is a true investment in one’s ongoing education.
