Forensic practice consists of health and human service workers who occupy and come into contact with professions found in corrections and parole, child welfare and protection, and mental health and well-being.
What You Will Learn
It encompasses criminal and civil matters, interventions with violent offenders, issues of child maltreatment, assessing parenting capacity and substance abuse. Forensic practice is multidisciplinary in nature, a combination of areas such as social work, criminology, psychology, psychiatry, nursing, child development and other related academic disciplines.
This new stream of Forensic Practice programming leads to Certificates of Completion in three specific areas of specialization. We created these specialized forensic certificates to offer personalization and flexibility to all students. A majority of the courses are now offered online, as well as in the evenings, allowing students to co-ordinate their schedules accordingly. This programming will also be of interest to seasoned professionals working in a range of health and human services agencies who wish to refine their skills in the area of forensic practice.
