Free CE Course Spotlight: Head, Heart, and Gut in Decision Making

Recent literature supports the idea that decision-making involves cognition, emotion, and intuition. The purpose of this course is to review the evidence for a three-factor model of head, heart, and gut aspects of cognition in decision making and to report on a designed and validated instrument that measures the aforementioned aspects. Researchers found that 52% of respondents were not able to accurately predict their head, heart, or gut decision-preference. The benefit of specifying the source of the decision-making activity to the head, heart, or gut enables skilled professionals to work specifically with individuals to gain a deeper awareness and understanding of their cognitions as a whole.

Free CE Course Spotlight: Ethics of Artificial Intelligence in Psychiatry, Psychology, and Psychotherapy

Artificial intelligence (AI) has many applications to mental health treatments. Outcomes for use of AI in mental health treatment are promising. The authors performed an analysis of ethical and social considerations in the use of AI in psychiatry, psychology, and psychotherapy. Major themes identified were anticipated benefits of AI; harm prevention and data ethics; lack of guidance on development, integration, and training; and potential for misuse. Challenges in applications included risk assessment, referrals, and supervision; respecting patient autonomy; uniqueness of human interactions; ethical issues with algorithms; and long-term effects. The authors review potential long-term implications of AI for mental health services and provide recommendations for developing ethical guidelines related to AI in mental health treatment.
