Quantum Units Education: New CEU Courses

Tobacco, Nicotine, and E-Cigarettes

As tobacco use is the leading preventable cause of mortality in the United States, differential rates of smoking and use of other tobacco products is a significant contributor to health disparities among some of the most vulnerable people in our society.  This CEU course examines the demographics of those who use nicotine products, why nicotine is more addictive and quitting is harder for some people and less so for others, and the treatments available for tobacco dependence.

Human Trafficking for Child Welfare Agencies and Caseworkers

Due to their potentially unstable living situations, physical distance from friends and family, traumatic experiences, and emotional vulnerability, children involved with child welfare are at risk for being targeted by traffickers who are actively seeking children to exploit.  This CEU course explores how child welfare agencies and caseworkers can identify and support children who have been victimized as well as children that are at greater risk for future victimization.  Strategies that agencies can implement to address the trafficking of children, tools and resources to assist caseworkers, along with State and local policy and program examples are also provided.

Women Who Inject Drugs: Risks, Experiences, and Needs

Women who inject drugs have substantially different needs and face higher risks of disease and violence than do men who inject drugs.  This CE course seeks to illuminate the many reasons a focus on drug-injecting women is important, including their significantly higher mortality rates, increased likelihood of facing injecting-related problems, faster progression from first use to dependence, higher rates of HIV, increased risky injection and/or sexual risk behaviors.

Prevention of Youth Violence and Risk Associated Behaviors

Youth violence is a significant public health problem that affects thousands of young people each day, and in turn, their families, schools, and communities.  This CEU course includes programs, practices, and policies with evidence of impact on youth violence victimization, perpetration, and risk or protective factors for youth violence.

Pharmacological Management of Schizophrenia

This CEU course provides recommendations for treatment of inmates in federal facilities who are diagnosed with chronic psychotic disorders.

Child Welfare and Human Trafficking

Often, the lack of stability in a child’s living situation, physical distance from friends and family, and emotional vulnerability put them at risk for traffickers who are actively seeking children and teens to exploit.  This CEU course provides a broad overview of the crossover between the child welfare field and the work currently being done to prevent and respond to human trafficking of children and youth in the United States.
