HCE 640 - Professional Issues in Mental Health Counseling

Mental health clinics, hospitals, substance use intervention facilities, and social service agencies are among the various organizations involved in helping people through mental health counseling.  This course examines the mental health needs of people in rural and urban communities and the views of mental health counseling held by those organizations who serve these people. Students will examine problems that organizations encounter in helping people and the consequences of services that interfere with helping. Attention is given to inter-professional and inter-organizational approaches to improving the quality of mental health counseling. Mental health counselor roles, functions, professional associations, credentialing, and ethical standards will also be examined. A special emphasis of the course is to examine mental health counseling from a historical, ethical, legal, philosophical, and developmental perspective.
