Modules for Mental Health and Substance Abuse

This Web-based learning tool titled “Effective and Ethical Social Work Practice With Older People With Mental Health and Substance Abuse Problems” is divided into eight teaching modules. Each of the eight modules is accessible from the page URL provided below. The modules can be used as a whole or divided into smaller portions to include across different areas of your curriculum.

These modules were developed using the overarching concept of stigma. Topic areas include:

  1. Overview of Stigma
  2. Aging in the 21st Century
  3. Mental Health
  4. Substance Abuse
  5. Practice Theories and Techniques
  6. Practice Settings
  7. Case Vignettes
  8. Student Assignments

Additionally, there are links to the bibliography, a pretest and posttest evaluation tool to assess student knowledge, helpful resources such as case studies, and videotaped student role play for creative learning activities.
