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.
This course will focus on preparing for board certification in forensic psychology. Participants will examine benefits of board certification, the application and examination process in detail. Common pitfalls encountered by applicants are explored, and strategies for avoiding such errors are presented and discussed. The course will focus on how to locate current resources to guide their progress toward board certification and the steps involved in acquiring board certification. The course will describe fundamental concepts that differentiate forensic psychology from other types of psychology and how to differentiate between race, ethnicity, and culture, and consider those concepts when making choices about how to assess individuals from diverse backgrounds. The importance of mental health case law, approaches to understanding cases and relevant case law, differences between the fields of law and psychology will be discussed.
The fee for this training program is $150 and participants should expect to commit approximately 3 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.
