Program Overview

Program Description:
The Forensic/Correctional Emphasis Area of the Psy.D. Program at Spalding University offers, within the curriculum of a doctoral program in general clinical psychology, training in the competencies (knowledge, skills and attitudes) essential to working with individuals involved in many of the capacities in the legal and correctional systems. The School of Professional Psychology is committed to identifying state of the art concepts, models and practices in this area, selecting high-quality and well-matched graduate students, and training them in these concepts, models and techniques to meet the needs of today’s society. The field of psychology has been evolving to meet the changing needs of the culture. One of these changes has been in the area of interface between the legal system and professional psychology. Psychologists work in and aid the legal system in many capacities. Professional contributions provided by psychologists to the legal system may be conceptualized as falling along the complete continuum of legal procedures.
