Being alert to mental changes and reporting them is an important part of a frontline caregiver’s responsibilities. Mental changes may signal an immediate threat to a resident’s health or well-being. Because CNAs spend the most time with residents, they are most likely to notice changes in a resident’s mental condition. The changes that a caregiver reports are an important first step in getting the help that a resident needs. Taking this first step may even turn out to be a lifesaving action. This revised and updated program will help CNAs recognize changes in a resident’s mental condition. It will review four basic types of mental changes, including depression, behavior problems, cognitive impairment and delirium. *Available closed captioned

Recognizing and reporting changes in a resident’s physical condition, such as loss of appetite or skin breakdown, is the key to preventing a potential problem from becoming worse.

As clinicians, we seek to support individual change - but to what extent are we influenced by the institutions that surround us? Can we ignore the role of systems in our work with clients, or does treatment involve addressing one’s environment as well? In this video, Dr. Philip Zimbardo illuminates the longstanding nature vs. nurture debate in a deep discussion about evil, heroism, and the psychological conditions that impact which way we turn. Here, the former APA president and leader of the infamous Stanford Prison Experiment goes back decades to tell us the story of its participants, the ways in which we internalize the roles given to us, and the compelling ways these factors are still playing out today. Zimbardo discusses issues such as compliance (what causes us to look the other way), learned helplessness (through the gradual acclimation to fearful situations), and "the illusion of personal invulnerability" - the idea that we would make better choices in similar situations. He goes on to discuss his work as an analyst during the Abu Ghraib trials, bringing his expertise to bear on the psychological processes at work among the guards. Ultimately, though, Zimbardo’s objective is hopeful: to uncover what inspires heroic acts and promote the development of our collective moral compass. If you’re interested in understanding how psychological and systemic forces create good or evil, you won’t want to miss this compelling interview. *Includes Instructor's Manual

Volume 1: THE THERAPEUTIC COMMUNITY PERSPECTIVE De Leon lays out the framework and theory underlying a therapeutic community, including the TC approach to substance abuse treatment and recovery. He explains that the TC is different from other treatment models in that it views substance abuse as a disorder of the whole person, and aims to treat that whole person, not just the drug addiction. Thus, TCs create social living situations where all aspects of a person's personality are displayed in work, formal groups and social activities, and then addressed directly by the community. 54 minutes Volume II: COMMUNITY AS METHOD De Leon explains how a therapeutic community uses its social environment to change individuals' behaviors, lifestyles and identities. The community is the method itself: constant participation, evaluation, feedback and reinforcement of personal responsibility are core components of daily life. 44 minutes Volume III: COMPONENTS OF GENERIC THERAPEUTIC COMMUNITY De Leon goes beyond theory to explain the specific operations of an ideal therapeutic community: what happens on a daily basis, what the physical space looks like, what activities are involved, and what are the functions and roles of the staff and community members.

"Amusing and horrifying by turns, but consistently fascinating throughout." The Hollywood Reporter *Already winner of many awards! With their comprehensive and unflustered research into the history of this particular aspect of the female anatomy in the 21st century, the directors shed light on every facet of the matter in hand, from sex education to censorship, from the airbrushing of ‘misshapen’ labia in pornographic images to the work of activists against female genital mutilation - and in doing so celebrate the diversity of the female body.
