Agenda

The Risk and Recovery Forensic Conference features three days of experts discussing the latest in risk assessment, risk management and recovery, including four keynote speakers and concurrent sessions. It’s an opportunity for professionals in mental health, probation and parole, corrections, legal services, and police to expand their knowledge of forensic psychiatry and contribute to the pursuit of excellence in mental health care. This is a hybrid event: participants can join in person or online. Those participating online will have a pre-selected seminar for the live stream, after which participants will be able to watch the recordings of any other seminars they may have missed online.
