10. Which aspects of the course were most valuable?
The multiple sections of the DSM-5 and the cultural aspects we explored this semester were of great value to me. I gleaned a great deal from each and every session we had this past semester. Motivational Interviewing and Assessment practice allowed me the opportunity to practice Social Work in an environment that was safe before going out and performing on real clients.
The course provided me with an exceptional understanding of mental health and its vital role in an individual's life.
I appreciated working so much on clinical skills, especially in terms of practicing motivational interviewing. While we do this in practicum, we haven't spent much time practicing clinical skills with the evaluation of the professor/peers in class. I learned a lot through these activities and gained more confidence in my clinical skills.
practicing motivational interviewing skills. would have liked to role play more using students pretending to be difficult clients: i.e.: uncooperative, overstepping boundaries, etc to learn what to do in those situations.
The in-class MI triads and the weather reports at the beginning of class.
Great books assigned, great resources/articles provided. Space for class discussion, coverage of the DSM-5.
I found most valuable the classroom discussions and the professional experiences relayed by Dr. Morelli. Presenting sections of the DSM iv/5 to the rest of the class was a really good learning experience for me.
I appreciated the indigenous perspectives that were shared within the framework of mental health. I also got a lot out of the ethics conversations as it relates to theory and practice.
The textbook on motivational interviewing was excellent. And practicing in class was helpful. Also, MI video was a good learning tool.
The hands on experience we gained in this course was probably the most useful of all its different aspects.

18. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the instructor?
Her expertise in guiding or discussions towards critical thinking was paramount. Her willingness to not be the expert, but allow us to explore personal growth and have unbiased in-dept discussions among one another is a great tool. I have grown intellectually and emotionally this semester.
Paula Morelli taught with a great appreciation of one's spiritual and cultural beliefs. She also made sure to remain objective in her methods of teaching course material.
Dr. Morelli inspired us to think critically about our practice, especially challenging us to think critically about our culture, paradigms, and biases. I feel like I grew a lot in terms of my personal cultural competence through the lectures, discussions, and readings.
open to listening to students opinions, ideas
Dr. Morelli's expertise in the subject matter / practice is most valuable.
Dr. Morelli is very knowledgeable and has lots of various experience in direct practice. She created an experiential learning environment.
Dr. Morelli is an engaging and effective instructor. Not exactly a very high-energy, inspiring lecturer, but funny and warm and good at getting the point across.
Her practical insight and supportive feedback.
She's understanding and patient with what the students are experiencing personally and professionally. I like that she incorporated Hawaiian culture and the importance of all indigenous cultures.
Skilled and genuine orator. Dr. Morelli is a fantastic teacher who does a wonderful job relating her years of experience professionally and academically. Even with years of experience she still believes that you should strive to have your mind continually blown. That in and of itself sums up a lot of who she is as and instructor and person.

25. Other comments:
This course provided me with a general understanding of mental health, mental illness, ways to intervene/cope with these struggles, and ideas that can enhance one's sense of (holistic) well- being. However, I feel that crucial aspects of a person's mental health were not focused on as much as necessary. As social workers, we should have the understanding that a person's worldly view originates from her/his sense of self, including family, homeland, hometown, country, etc. This sense of self affects one's holistic health (e.g. mental health, spiritual health, physical health). I believe that important factors that influence this sense of self such as social justice issues were not nearly concentrated on as much as needed. We spent much class time learning about the DSM-5 and ways to diagnosis an individual with a mental illness. I feel that as social workers, we must explore more ways to address these illnesses by limiting the occurrence of social justice issues all together. If a person is ultimately a product of her/his environment, shouldn't we focus on the environment in hopes to eliminate the occurrence of the struggle to begin with? When I talk about social justice issues, I am referring to militarization of lands and the colonization of peoples. I am talking about gentrification and the oppression that happens daily for people who have been marginalized. When discussing the realities of PTSD, we failed to recognize the root of the illness (displacement, inherited trauma, experiences of war as victims, etc.) We learned how the Western world would diagnose the illness so that a health insurance can pay for it, but we did not focus on the fact that these situations- displacement, inherited trauma, experiences of war, etc.- are still very real and active. Instead of spending sessions on ways to diagnose a person, we should have been having the conversation about ways to address problems that dehumanize countless peoples, today. I understand that the goal for many in this mental health concentration is to proceed in obtaining a clinical license, and I understand the necessity of the material revolving around mental illness diagnoses. However, I believe that since we are in a Master's level of Social Work, concentrating on mental health, we should also be conversing about social justice issues that greatly affect people's and their sense of well-being- talking about ways we can address these struggles and advocating, working for change. -cq.
While a lot of the reading was beneficial, there was SO MUCH that many of us got burnt out after the first month. Trying to keep up with the reading was overwhelming, resulting in most students (including myself) just giving up at a certain point in the semester and not reading at all.
Main negative -- dr. morelli had her favorite students she called upon. She didn't take time to know other students. Even now I don't think she knows my name.
It would be helpful to get more practice with the skills in class (like the MI triads we did) and giving each other feedback, or to practice assessments before handing one in as a final, and to have a space for asking practice-based questions or brainstorm solutions to issues we may be encountering at our practicum sites.
Grading was fair overall, however it appeared that she graded some things more liberally (DSM-5 presentations) while grading other things (MI videos) on a much lower scale. The instructions given for the MI assignment in class were different from the instructions on the syllabus, so I was confused about which skills to focus on in the interview (only reflections? the syllabus indicated focusing and evoking as well as OARS). The feedback given on the MI videos was vague so I didn't know specifically what I could have improved upon. We never got the chance to watch some MI videos in class (as planned) so I was not able to see examples of MI that received higher grades. Because of all those factors I felt that the MI assignment was not helpful to my learning, however if instructions were clear and feedback was specific it would have been much more helpful! I understand that Dr. Morelli cannot give detailed feedback on over 20 video's, but without feedback I didn't get much more out of the assignment then just practicing in class!
I felt that there was too much reading material assigned for this class. I would have preferred that there be a lesser amount REQUIRED, and more of it listed as optional. It was overwhelming and made it impossible to keep up.
I felt a little lost with the transition from the DSM 4 to DSM 5. I don't think we focused enough on either.
Thank you Dr. Morelli for an informative and in some ways trans-formative course!

25. Other comments:
For future classes, may be helpful to break down the class into 2 groups so that each student has time to provide more thorough feedback to each other. Going around individually with each student did not allow enough feedback for some students, but allowed more feedback for others. If broken down to 2 smaller groups, may allow for equal time for each student.
I enjoyed this course and felt like I learned a lot. I think it would be beneficial in the future to spend slightly more time on the theory/practice of qualitative methods at the expense of discussing each other's projects. While hearing about other student's papers was interesting and educational, I would have enjoyed hearing more about our readings from Dr. Morelli.
I would have liked to see grading criteria or rubrics for assignments and/or feedback/edits to understand how to improve more for each new assignment. The class was thought providing and I know I learned a lot but in terms of grades, the lack of information and feedback made me feel like it was Dr. Morelli's interpretation of our progress.

Dr Morelli is awesome. She understands what its like to be a student and does not pressure you into completing assignments. Awesome teacher Awesome person.
I believe that the class reinforced learning tools and elements of the foundation year in a more practical sense.
Paula definitely knows her class material. This experience sitting under her teaching has been most rewarding. Fortunately, we have the opportunity to learn from her extensive knowledge and perception. This semester has opened my eyes to a cultural view and how very important SWkers understand the implications towards intervention/treatment with clients. I feel I have received a 110% return and its been worth all of my time,energy, and money I have invested towards obtaining my MSW. Thank you very much Paula!
I will miss Paula next semester
Very useful information!! It was a lot to take in over the semester, but very important nonetheless.
Great class!
Thankful to have taken a class from you. God bless!
I really enjoyed having Dr. Morelli as an instructor for this class I will miss her next semester.
I took this course as an elective and found it enjoyable and educational. I would highly recommend this course as an elective, as most concentrations can benefit from at least a basic understanding of mental health issues. Paula is an excellent instructor and the classes were a good mix of lecture, activities, student presentations, and a field trip. Great class!

This course may have been better if it had not moved so quickly to the on-line environment.
I think that if the course (this also goes for the other online courses too) had more face to face time and less online time most of my answers would have come out as "strongly agree" The online element to this class created a barrier to the more effective learning that could have happened. Considering that this year many PhD students have not been in school for a while and have been out getting actual work experience in the field; more interaction and discussion (among the cohort along with the professors) about their experiences and the relevancy to the classes would have been extremely beneficial to the learning environment. The cohort has many interesting and practical experiences past and current that are very relevant to the PhD objectives in a tangible way. More acknowledgement (from the program) of our experiences and the professors experiences would not only teach volumes but would also foster a more collaborative and supportive learning environment. Often times, I have not felt much support in the program which I think is largely due to the distance that online classes can create between professors and students but also among students.
I would have preferred to meet in class rather than on Laulima. I know that it's late and sometimes inconvenient to get to campus, but I think the benefits of being with fellow classmates and meeting in person outweighs those costs.
She has a lot of experience in this field. More examples of students' work or other works could have been provided to give a better understanding of the assignments for the class. Powerpoint is fine but going through it line by line only makes it boring. I thought I understood the instructor's expectations but the guidelines were not specific and clear to complete the paper. In future, she may want to stick to the timeline for each section of the assignment so that there is no rush towards the end of the semester.

Dr. Morelli is an excellent communicator. She created non-threatening, supportive atmosphere and always encourage us to share our thoughts. Thanks to this I was able to learn a lot not only from her but also my colleagues. She is very knowledgeable about the subject and taught us in interesting way. Her lecture on motivational interviewing was especially helpful, which I'm utilizing in practicum setting.
A wonderful, interesting class with a committed teacher. I suggest less emphasis on the DSM-one assignment rather than 3.
I learned alot with this class. Paula is a excellent teacher and I feel so lucky to have her for this class. I wish she was teaching next semester. She has to be one of my favorite teachers. She is very fair and open minded. She brought so much of her experience to the class which i love.
Thanks for the great learning opportunity and sharing ur personal stories as well as getting my peers to do the same ~ makes learning better for me. I will be sending extra prayes your way for your daughter, her family and of course her loving and caring parents! God is able!
Hands down, the best professor on campus. No biases in my body!!!
Dr. Morelli is a very knowledgeable and is very genuine when she teaches. She wants her students to learn and she implements assignments that help us to learn and do critical thinking. Students feel open to ask questions during class and she effectively explains her assignments so that we all have a clear understanding of what to do. It is unfortunate that she won't be teaching next semester, but I wish her luck in her future endeavors.
This course has taught me so much. It has taught me my strengths and weaknesses as a social worker. Mostly importantly it has taught me about self processig and refection. I like how the course was structure and would like to have more small groups of reflection which would have made it more easier to reflect and discuss in a bigger group. I love the discussions we had about our thoughts and opinions. The learning environment in class was safe and non-judgemental. I was able to share my thoughts and feelings without hestitating. Its too bad that Professor Morelli is taking a Sabatical because I would have enjoyed the continuation of the self reflection and process into a full year.

Great class, encouraging us to explore the mental health field while allowing us individualized learning by not forcing group work on us. Stimulating, relavent material and asignments. Great teacher... knowledgable, engaging, encouraging, and creative. While I would have enjoyed more content on clinical counseling, I understand time is limited and it is difficult to get everything in. Great class overall Paula!

Paula Morelli exemplifies teaching excellence. She not only shares her extensive knowledge of social work practice from her many years of experience, but encourages her students to share their many varied experiences to promote a mutual learning environment that includes herself. Paula practices what she preaches. This enhances the social work values and ethics that we are taught and are to abide by in our own social work practice. In other words, Paula is a great role model. Paula genuinely cares about her students and encourages pursuit of excellence in our chosen paths. She is especially adept at focusing on our strengths but not afraid to point out areas that need work so as to provide a balanced perspective. I feel empowered as a person and a budding social worker having had Paula as an instructor.
This class was not only excellent in content it provided many opportunities for self-awareness.
-- snipped --
What was very helpful was the various treatment discussion. When each student covered different topics, it shed light to different populations and mental health services.
Paula is one of the best instructors that I have had a course with throughout the MSW program!
I understand that we are incoporating technology in the classroom, such as using laptops and cellphone applications to take notes or what not. However, it is distracting and disrespectful to use while someone is presenting (guest or student). I also felt the large class size wasn't effective to learning or provided opportunities to comfortably share personal thoughts.
Instead of having each student present their portfolios, experiences, etc. the class time could have been utilized by having the instructor lecture about class subjects: materials that would enhance our learning to complete homework assignments and projects. Syllabus was not followed. More emphasis on the DSM-IV. Case studies or going over the DSM-IV materials/disorders were not discussed during this semester.
-- snipped --
Would have liked to have a more clinical focus
Learning circle and time for reflection is helpful but not for an entire semester. I do not believe all of the course objectives were covered and often felt that class time was more focused on discussing our experiences, which is beneficial, but not when other learning opportunities are neglected. The assignments helped us identify beliefs and consider our personal learning process but a lot of important topics were ignored and/or overlooked because so much time was spent "sharing."
I really enjoyed having Paula as an instructor. She has so much knowledge and is a very personable individual.
it felt like we were going to a therapeutic group session, this was very frustrating
I would've liked to have exlpored various therapies and learned more about how to utilize the DSM IV TR. I would have also liked to explore more cultural based practices. I feel the last 3 classes could've been utilized more efficiently; perhaps learned something new, had an inspirational guest speaker or had time alloted for portfolio work instead of portfolio sharing.

my experience in the group research project was a blessing. i learned so much as we were able to "talk story" and discuss the aspects of our project. we learned about theories and different ways people did research. i never thought that i would enjoy doing research, but this group project has definitely changed my views. mahalo nui loa Paula, aloha !!!
She made complicated material seem very easy to understand through stories that we could relate to

I rated this course as average because the main focus of the course changed several weeks into the course. However, changing the focus of the course was extremely helpful and should have been done years ago. However, it would have been nice if the course had started out that way. I do realize this was the instructor's first time teaching the course and I know in the future when she teaches it again it will be much better with the focus of the course well thought out.

15. My overall evaluation of this instructor is....
I enjoyed and look forward to next semester to learn from Paula. She is a wonderful teacher and mentor.
I really like your teaching style and you are a great model for future social workers. Thanks for sharing your knowledge with us. Please re-think the group projects. Too many and too long.
I don't believe that people who do not do anything in a group project should not be allowed to obtain the same grade as the rest of the group. That would be completely unfair.
Paula has been an excellent instructor and I have learned a lot from her.
I would have wanted more case studies (client case scenarios) and use them to practice diagnosis using DSM-IV. Also, more challenge and specific case studies in discuussing major mental health diagnosis w/ commonly used psycho-tropic medications. Other than that, excellent class!!
Great- really shows care and concern for students, allows self reflection and personal growth, and truly cares about our clinical skills.
She really knows her stuff.
Paula is extremely knowledgeable about the topic of mental health. Some aspects of the class were never quite clear to me, and were never completely satisfactorily explained (motivational interviewing, DSM stuff). For some reason discussion was like pulling teeth and was very awkward. I like how you can really see Paula's heart for the work, and how that work is informed by her extremely academic side.

22. My overall evaluation of this course is...
I recommend that we practice diagnosing by using the DSM IV. I would like to take home practice cases and then go over them the next week to practice diagnosing skills (not necessarily a graded homework) and to fully learn about the different disorders in the DSM IV. PBL sessions should be utilized during class sessions to help students to have a better understanding of the materials and to also enhance learning.
Excellent course. I learned alot about myself and mental health issues that effect many people.
This was a pretty good course, but it could be amped up a bit. Less group presentations, please!! THANK YOU!!
Great class overall...i really enjoy the cultural emphasis on comprehensive assessment and treatment approaches. MAHALO PAULA!!!
Great course, really grateful for the clinical skill practice- always want more of that. I enjoy this coursework and wish we could go into more detail with other clinical interventions and dsm diagnosis.
I learned a lot and am very happy I took the course.
topics should be explored in more detail. assignments are helpful but more might be gained if there were similar exercises and discussion during class time.
For all the talk about "indiginization" of the school, I'm not seeing much evidence of this in the mental health concentration class. This is an opportunity to present alternative modes of thought with mental health, and I would love to see this more than having the primary focus being on western models (DSM, MI).

Great
Positive. I would have liked to hear more lecture about the topic because the instructor knows a lot about qualitative research and we can learn much from her. More lecture on the topic would have led to more structured discussion that would provided more learning opportunities for the class, rather than talking so much about our projects. Sometimes the class got off topic and we needed more redirection, though that was less of an issue when we were on Elluminate. I appreciated her efforts to hear out class concerns and provide support. Instructor was very knowledgable and patient with students to help us learn Elluminate. She really made the extra effort to understand it in order to make it easier for the students.
she is an wonderful professor, very excellent gardian and a kind mother, she has all the qualities that required for teaching gradudate students across culture and background. Qualitative research is her area of expertise, so she left no stone unturned. I respect her professionalism.

24. My overall evaluation of this course is...
Excellent class! I learned a lot in the class and it was very applicable to my research goals.
It is a necessary course, but somewhat challenging. Perhaps I would have gotten more out of the class if it was offered the second semester of the program when students have more a handle on things. There was a lot of reading, perhaps it would be better to have a primary reading topic that we would focus on for lecture and discussion and the secondary additional readings for each class. Using Elluminate was excellent. Some students seem reluctant to use it because they lack a good internet connection so have problems, but it is really the future of teaching so it benefits us to know how to use these types of technologies and get used to change in the classroom.
I believe and would like to do more qualitative research work for my dissertaion, therefore I am always optimist about the course and methods. It is not only because of the topic but also due to the professors' teaching style, I think the course was one of the most interesting for me. I enjoyed all the sessions and assignments, I still have more interest on this and I will learn that when I will do the actual research.
