Introducing the International Forensic Psychiatry Lecture Series
With COVID-19 cancelling many events, including our April Risk and Recovery Conference and our August forensic psychiatry retreat, the Forensic Psychiatry Institute made a pandemic pivot and launched the International Forensic Psychiatry Lecture Series.
Hosted by McMaster University and St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton, this weekly educational webinar series provides engaging and innovative topics on forensic psychiatry. Talks will be no longer than one hour and include a question and answer period. Attendees will have the flexibility to register for any topics that pique their interest.
Learning Outcomes include:
- A more sophisticated understanding of key forensic topics to eventually improve practice (rotating weekly themes include: introductory, advanced, controversies and innovations, and global perspectives)
- Enhanced international multi-disciplinary collaboration
All learners, faculty, researchers and individuals working in mental health and the law are welcome to attend, learn and collaborate!
