The Forensic Center functions as a training and treatment facility within The Chicago School of Professional Psychology where services are provided by psychologists, mental health professionals, and graduate students.
At the Center, TCS students are able to work alongside faculty and staff in providing mental health services and programming through service-learning and practica experiences. This represents a great opportunity for students to gain hands-on experience and involvement with the psychology field, while under the supervision of experienced faculty and staff.
There are many benefits for graduate students who become involved with training in the Forensic Center. They are able to gain hands-on experience and learn empirically-driven modalities while bolstering confidence in professional practice. Students are able to work closely, not only with faculty and staff, but diverse communities and forensic settings to develop their professional skills.
