Webinar: Understanding and Responding to the Mentally-Ill Offender
NOTE: This training was previously scheduled for an In-Person training in Sacramento, CA. However, due to travel limitations and guidance received from state administration, this course is now converted to a 4-hour webinar. If you had previously registered for the 4-hour in-person course, please re-register for this webinar.
This class will present on overview of mental health issues, including diagnosis, psychopharmacology, and dangerousness, as well as how mental illness has increasingly become a justice system problem. We will discuss research-based approaches to effective supervision of mentally-ill offenders, including the role of the probation officer, and responding to individuals suffering from specific disorders.
