SOCW 6350 - Forensic Applications in Community Settings


(5 cr.) Professionals must devote considerable attention to forensic psychology perspectives and approaches to address issues such as the overpopulation of prisons, the decrease in healthcare availability, and cases in which courts remand treatment in community settings. Students in this course examine forensic psychology theories and perspectives, and then apply these concepts to various community settings. They are provided with practical assignments and topical readings that focus on working with offenders re-entering the community as well as offenders who receive community placements rather than incarceration. In addition, students explore less-common applications, such as restorative justice and community crime prevention. They also analyze the impact of personal perspectives and setting on the application of forensic psychology.
