Issues addressed include cultural variation in perceptions of 'disorder/impairment/disability', prevalence and risk factors, rationales and methods of early identification, principles of clinical assessment and evidence-based intervention, working with bilingual and bicultural clients, service delivery models and methods for judging the effectiveness of intervention. This course includes case study work for both assessment and intervention planning.
