Teaching Methods

The Certificate programs are flexible and optimized to meet the challenges and demands of the practicing professional. Each course runs for 10 sessions. Our primary teaching method is web-based virtual instruction using Elluminate Live!, a state of the art technology for real-time and asynchronous online learning and collaboration. This technology allows students to participate from the convenience of their home or office. Three in residence sessions are required for each ten session course to promote in depth discussion as well as provide face-to-face instruction at critical training junctures.

Completion of both Certificate Programs in Forensic Psychology with Clinical Placement and Supervision primarily targets early career psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and other licensed or permit- or license-eligible practitioners who aspire to careers in forensic psychology, forensic social work, forensic psychiatry, or forensic mental health evaluation. Intensive weekly clinical supervision is provided as part of this program.

Completion of one or both Certificate Programs without Clinical Placement and Supervision is aimed toward experienced practitioners seeking to deepen their knowledge of criminal, civil, and family court proceedings as well as forensic assessment and consultation.
