Description of Forensic Psychology

Advertisement

This course is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) and forms the essential component for Stage 1 of the Chartership process towards becoming a Chartered Forensic Psychologist. The course offers some students the opportunity of ongoing work experience placements with local prisons and the local forensic secure unit.

It provides an advanced and up-to-date understanding of theoretical and applied issues in forensic psychology. It integrates the development of an appropriate psychological and professional knowledge base with training in many of the professional skills utilised in practice. The course also emphasises the importance of ongoing assessment, intervention and throughcare, and highlights the role of the forensic psychologist as a project manager, consultant, investigator and practitioner. The course strikes an excellent balance between aspects of investigative psychology and the applied professional and clinical aspects of practice as a forensic psychologist.

How you learn

The course utilises seminars and lectures. There are aspects of self-directed learning in some modules and applied learning including visits to courts and specialist expert external speakers. There is also the possibility for some students to engage with placements with a local forensic unit, the Hutton Centre and prisons in the North East of England.
