Kate co-authored an article with me for The Forensic Examiner.
Forensic Mental Health and Technology: Risk Management Strategies for the Practitioner is available to read online. The article is also available online as a continuing education course and applies toward necessary CE for practitioners who hold the Certified Forensic Consultant (CFC) credential. The cost is $25.00. Others may take the course and apply the 1 hour through pre or post approval methods with the various credentialing and licensing bodies.
So what are Kate and I doing writing about forensic mental health? Well, for about eight years, much of my work involved child welfare, family assessments, parental fitness, domestic violence and substance abuse evaluations for the courts. I discovered that many child protective and foster care case workers and managers, counselors, psychologists and lawyers passed client information using unsecure methods. Kate and I combined our knowledge and wrote and article addressing these issues.
I am a member of the American College of Forensic Examiner’s American Board of Forensic Counselors and I am a Certified Forensic Consultant. While my current work does not focus as much now on forensic mental health, I am dedicated to educating mental health practitioners across disciplines about the proper use of technology.
