FO 665 - Community Interventions in FO Mental Health I

This course affords students the unique opportunity for community involvement and to study the process of change that is facilitated through a variety of non-clinical interventions using an ecological systems model (i.e., systems of relationships that impact the individual). Students will be involved in providing training and/or psychoeducational services to forensic systems or to a particular forensic population through community initiatives at The Chicago School Forensic Center. Students will receive live coaching or supervision from faculty related to the direct services provided. Students will document observations, formulate clinical hypotheses, and synthesize case data to formulate case opinions and provide effective recommendations that directly impact systems. Issues pertaining to forensic populations and court procedures relevant to a particular case will be discussed.
