Program Description

This course is designed to provide you with a thorough grounding in the theory, themes, issues and practical skills we consider to be central to forensic psychology and forensic mental health settings. It is part of a suite of courses in the field of forensic psychology at Coventry University, which also includes MSc Forensic Psychology (campus-based and online versions), and the campus-based MSc Forensic Psychology and Mental Health course.

You will examine a number of topics including psychological theories and evidential processes used in the justice system, and the range of interventions available to forensic psychologists, working with diverse client groups including the various types of offenders, patients and at risk individuals of all ages and both sexes, including children and young people in conflict with the law, as well as professionals, groups and organisations.

In 2017, the National Audit Office estimated that 10% of the prison population in England was receiving treatment for a mental health problem. Further, that 37% of people in prison had reported mental health problems to HM Inspector of Prisons. In this course, you will have the opportunity to study the types of mental health disorders commonly found in prisons, and be taught how to assess and work with individuals in forensic settings, including understanding appropriate treatment programmes and the psychological challenges that can be faced by staff working in the prison service.
