We are pleased to offer a selection of recorded workshops by the American Academy of Forensic Psychology (AAFP). These were presented as live workshops and recorded for online distribution. Unlike our typical professional training programs, these recordings do not include any interactive components or supplemental materials and are more akin to old-school CE than premium professional training.
The lecture DSM-5: Developments for Forensic Applications is presented by Christina Pietz. This course provides an overview of the changes made in the latest version of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5), with special attention to how these changes impact psychologists’ work in forensic matters. Also discussed are more general problems that can result from including diagnoses in reports summarizing forensic psychological examinations. Participants will review reports for the purpose of discussing how changes in the DSM may affect their forensic opinions.
The fee for this training program is $300 and includes all materials. In addition, case studies and other case-relevant materials are provided for training purposes. Participants should expect to commit approximately 6 hours to completing this training program. At the end of the training program there will be a quiz that must be passed with a 70% in order to advance in the course. Once the course is completed participants will complete a course evaluation and then will be able to print their certificate of completion.
This course is relevant for psychologists–beginner, intermediate, and advanced.
