ABOUT THE TRAINING
This is a beginner level training in that you do not need to know anything about gender diversity prior to taking it. But to most benefit you should have at least moderate familiarity with basic practices in forensic assessment.
The last decade has seen an explosion of research and more intentional ethical guidelines promoting an affirming outlook on gender diversity. Unfortunately, much of this information has yet to permeate forensic practice. This course starts with a socio-historical look at gender and the courts while students learn common terminology. The remainder provides practical suggestions for the forensic interview, diagnostic conceptualization, testing, and report writing.
Students leave the course with a conceptual foundation for thinking about gender-diverse defendants. They receive concrete suggestions for asking gender-related questions – both “how” and “what” to ask. After taking the course, students should have a well-rounded perspective on when diagnosis is relevant forensically and common differentials that can be misinterpreted as pathology. They should take practical tips to write stronger and more affirming reports that also more accurately guide the Court and fulfill our ethical mandate for social justice advocacy.
