Forensic Training Institute – April 16

Diagnostic Controversies In Forensic Practice

For those of you in or near California, it's not too late to register for this full-day training workshop coming up in just three weeks. It is presented by yours truly and Craig Lareau, JD, PhD, ABPP, who has just written an excellent chapter on the DSM-IV for the upcoming 6th edition of the classic Faust (Ziskin) reference work, Coping with Psychiatric and Psychological Testimony.

We are gearing this toward advanced-level forensic practitioners. Topics include:
  • The DSM in court
  • Antisocial Personality Disorder and Psychopathy
  • Diagnosis in Sexually Violent Predator (SVP) proceedings
  • Posttraumatic Stress Disorder
The all-day (9:00-4:00) training is a preconvention special hosted by the California Psychological Association in Oakland. It provides 6 units of CE credits, and costs $175 for CPA members and $225 for non-members.
