FORENSIC SOCIAL WORK TRACK

This forensic social work track is indispensable for learning about the integration of clinical practice and the court systems. These courses will be integral to effective interdisciplinary collaboration. Social workers who work with court involved people should be prepared to advance social justice through advocacy at the micro, mezzo and macro levels.

This track will present highlights of therapeutic jurisprudence, explore intersectionality and provide insights regarding current diagnostic and legal trends in family, criminal and civil court, as well as promising interventions for practice application. We labeled these workshops as FOR so they are easier for you to identify when making your workshop selections.
