Brief Solution Focused Therapy can be a very effective and powerful tool to prompt client change and facilitate getting unstuck.

As a mental health professional, you would be remiss only to focus on the solutions and not to thoroughly understand the client?s history, symptoms, and diagnosis.

XNH 5003 - Human Anatomy and Physiology

This six-week online course begins with an explanation of the nature of matter and a review of the principles of chemistry that are important to human physiology. We'll place an emphasis on the organization of the human body and the differences between nonliving matter and living organisms. We'll also cover cell anatomy and physiology because all life processes are ultimately carried out at the cellular level. You'll also learn principles of genetics and gain an understanding of how traits are passed from one generation to the next.After we've established this foundation, we'll survey the anatomy and physiology of each of our 11 organ systems. You'll learn how our nervous system allows us to receive, process, and interpret sensation and send messages to our muscles and glands. We'll cover the skeletal and muscular systems, learning how they make movement possible, and also about some of their little-known but equally essential functions.This course explains how the circulatory and respiratory systems work together to provide our bodies with the oxygen our tissues need, and how they work together with the skin and kidneys to rid our bodies of wastes. You'll learn how our bodies fight off diseases, and how our digestive system converts the food we eat into energy and the tissues of our bodies. We'll also spend time on the endocrine system, which supplies the hormones we need for our survival, and the reproductive system, that group of organs that allows life to be passed on to another generation.We'll also discuss functions of the different organ systems that you'll probably find surprising. In addition, each lesson includes information about specific disorders that sometimes happen to our bodies, and we'll also talk about some recent advances in medicine. By the end of this course, you'll have a greater appreciation and understanding of the marvelous complexity of the human body!

XNH 5004 - Human Anatomy and Physiology II

In this course, we'll cover some more advanced topics that we didn't have time for in Human Anatomy and Physiology I. We'll start with basic histology?the study of the different tissues in the body. You'll learn about the structure and function of epithelial, connective, nervous, and muscular tissue. You'll come to understand the different sub-types of these tissues, where they're located, and the special jobs they perform.From there, we'll move on to a discussion of the different senses. We'll study how your brain receives and processes information from your skin, joints, muscles, and special balance organs in your ears. Then we'll discuss the sensations of sight, sound, taste, and smell. You'll learn about the organs that receive these sensations and how the brain makes sense of them.We'll also delve into the important topic of cellular metabolism?the chemical reactions that occur in cells. You'll find out about the major types of chemical reactions and see why food, oxygen, and water are essential for these chemical reactions to occur. And you'll learn about classes of chemicals called acids, bases, and salts, and their significance in the body.Then we'll focus on the human life span. We'll start with a detailed explanation of the process of fertilization, proceed to a discussion of pregnancy and childbirth, and finally, talk about significant events that occur from infancy through old age. You'll also discover ways to slow down the aging process. By the end of this course, you'll have an even greater appreciation of the complexity and wonder of the human body!
