Building expertise in person-centered dementia care, at your pace

Dementia is the second most prevalent mental disorder affecting older adults, the sixth leading cause of death in the U.S., and is present in one-third of older adults at the time of death. In order to understand and to respond effectively to the needs of our clients, clinicians must have adequate training in the complex interactions of disease pathology, individual strengths, environmental conditions, informal supports, formal resources, and societal influences. The purpose of this online, self-paced certificate program is to prepare practitioners for advanced clinical practice with clients and families affected by Alzheimer's and other types of dementia.

The Addictions Certificate Program is designed for direct clinical practitioners - social workers, nurses, and psychologists - who deliver or plan to deliver behavioral healthcare services to addicted populations that may present with additional complex and comorbid mental health and physical health needs. Participants will gain assessment, intervention, and consultation knowledge and skills for practical application in the workplace, and will link with a peer learning community to discuss and explore new skills and ideas.



All ACP content has been pre-approved by the Michigan Certification Board for Addiction Professionals (MCBAP) and is applicable for "specific" continuing education contact hours. Because of the unique design features of the University of Michigan Addictions Certificate Program, these CE contact hours are designated as formal classroom education hours, rather than home study contact hours.
