Concurrent Disorders: When an individual has a concurrent disorder they face unique and difficult challenges because they suffer from both mental health and addiction disorders. The interrelationships between mental, emotional, behavioural and chemical dependency will be explored in this course. Students will explore the skills and knowledge required to understand the causes and identify, assess, and assist in the treatment of individuals with concurrent disorders. Students will study the impact concurrent disorders have on individuals and families and how to apply evidence-based practices in providing support while taking into account culture, diversity, gender, sexual orientation, and the role of support persons, systems, and community available resources.
