Event description

Description

This workshop will be offered in a series of three, two-hour online training sessions. Sessions will be spaced at one-month intervals to allow participants time to complete exercises and receive feedback. The ZOOM online platform allows for video, voice, and text communication as well as screen and slide sharing.

The series is designed as a follow-up to the Introduction to Impact of Race and Culture Assessments and is designed to aid qualified clinicians as they develop the skills to conduct such assessments. This workshop is open to qualified clinicians who are interested in building their knowledge and skills to conduct IRCAs, to defense and prosecuting attorneys who wish to have more in depth knowledge of IRCAs, and to judges. Please note that there is no certifiation program for IRCAs; they are a novel and developing area of specialization within forensics.

May 3: This first session is an introduction to the IRCA, an introduction to its guidelines, and an overview of the applicable psycho-social theories essential for completing a good IRCA. (I will not go into depths with the theories. These are covered in the introductory series).

After the first session participants will have a month to produce a very preliminary draft of an IRCA. The goal here is to give folk a chance to deeply review and apply the guidelines and theories to a real case. Students will submit their drafts two days prior the second session. Students will be encouraged to share their draft with each other, though this is not mandatory.

May 31: In the second session we will review the IRCA guidelines in greater detail and answer the substantive questions folk may have about the application of theory. Understanding the effects of systemic racism experienced in the corrections and social services systems and relevant clinical impacts will be reviewed. We will not review each person's draft assessment, but we will engage as a group reviewing each guideline and answering questions.

After the second session it is expected that participants will substantially complete their IRCA and will bring the product and their questions to the third session. Students will be asked to submit their assessments 2 days before the third session.

June 28: Each participant will be asked to make a 5 minute presentation on the conclusion and recommendation section of the assessment they completed. We will review and discuss these as a group, and I will answer any final questions people have. The remainder of the third session will focus on the nature of providing evidence as an expert witness. The production of a comprehensive CV, an overview of the nature and expectations of expert witnesses, and a review of the kinds of questions asked during qualification will be discussed.

The fee for the workshop series is $400.00 plus HST and fees. For additional information, pleas contact info@robertswright.ca.
