Would you like to broaden and deepen your specialist knowledge in Forensic Mental Healthcare? You will be supported to grow in confidence and self-awareness, and to develop the ability to critique and think creatively about practice. This module aligns with the Professional Practice Programme philosophy and is designed to be flexible and practice-led. You will have the opportunity to develop skills of enquiry, reflection and problem solving. In the first module you will cover 'Forensic Child and Adolescent Mental Health' including autistic spectrum disorders and offending. You will consider why women enter secure mental healthcare and the most effective ways of working with female service users. You will examine how men’s mental health relates to offending and consider national and international best practice. We will also look at how learning disability coupled with mental illness might impact on the risk someone poses to themselves and others. You will consider how to work most effectively with people with personality disorders, and patients from diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds.
