Alaskan Cross-Culture: Native Behavioral Health
The purpose of this course is to assist you in increasing your knowledge regarding how to treat patients, clients, etc., who demonstrate characteristics of masculine depression.
As each case study is given, if the concepts seem to be applicable to your situation, I encourage you to turn your CD player off and make a few notes regarding the application of the principle to your setting. However, these notes are for your purposes only and are not to be sent to the Healthcare Training Institute. Also each track is very content dense. So feel free to replay the track to review the content.
Regarding completion of the Test at the end of each CD track, a question is asked. This question corresponds with a question in your Test. Merely write the correct letter on the blank line that precedes each question. Keep in mind there is nothing tricky or hard about these questions. They are merely intended to verify the playing of this CD.
These questions are sequential and deal with the section of content that preceded it. For this reason, to facilitate answering each question, you might read the question from the Test prior to listening to that CD Track. By knowing what the question is ahead of time, you will know the content to listen for that contains the answer. So just a hint, after you answer a question, read on to the next question in order to give you a "heads up" to listen for the content that contains the answer.
For the purpose of brevity, most generally I will use the term "therapists" or "mental health professional." However, don't let these terms deter you from applying the concepts to your situation. When you hear the word "therapists," if your job title is social worker, psychologist, marriage and family therapist, mental health counselor, professional counselor, resident director, program assistant, etc. merely substitute the appropriate term that is the most meaningful to you. In short, don't let my use of the term "therapists" cognitively deter you from hearing the content of a track because your job title is school counselor, for example. I will also use the term "client" for the purposes of brevity. However, if you deal with patients, residents, students, consumers, etc. transpose "client" to the term that is the most meaningful to you in your work setting.
