Course Description:

This course reviews and explains Enforcement Guidance on the Americans with Disabilities Act and psychiatric disorders.  Accordingly, it provides an overview on the classification of psychiatric disabilities pursuant to the Americans with Disabilities Act.  Guidelines and rules about what constitutes a psychiatric disorder are covered in order to clarify the stigmatization and misunderstanding of psychiatric disabilities at work. 

 

Clinicians working with clients who have mental illness will find this course particularly useful.  The article is written in an easy to follow question and answer format and was developed by the Department of Labor.  It covers the legal rules and procedural issues pertaining to work discrimination under the ADA with respect to psychiatric disabilities.  The material details the rights of those who have a mental illness in the workplace as well as appropriate ways to request reasonable accommodations to perform their jobs.  This is an area in which few mental health practitioners have expertise, and this course provides valuable information that can be used to help clients advocate for their rights as well as gain the accommodations needed to make work possible. 

 

This course is an excellent reference for practitioners working with the mentally ill.   Psychologists, social workers, mental health counselors and marriage and family therapists can benefit from this course. This course may also be helpful for other practitioners, such as midwives and dieticians and nutritionist who may work in team or multidisciplinary environments. This course is designed for both clinicians and administrators who are leaders in their agencies. It is particularly appropriate for supervisors, midlevel and upper level managers. It is targeted for intermediate and advanced practitioners.
