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.
The Mental Health and Forensic Practice certificate provides students with an understanding of the major issues involved in working with people who have mental health issues within a forensic context. With a focus on assessment, treatment and teamwork practice, students will explore such topics as trauma and grief interventions, working with persons with addictive behaviours and disorders of impulse control, harm reduction strategies, self-care and burnout prevention, diversion programs, restorative measures, and best practices for delivering effective and ethical services.
This Certificate in Corrections in Forensic Practice can lead to a Graduate Certificate in Forensic Practice. For more information, see our program page for the Forensic Practice Graduate Certificate. Related Certificates of Completion are.
