Over the year, there are four 2-day teaching blocks on campus in Auckland with the rest of the course online.
The Youth Forensics course is for nurses, social workers, occupational therapists, counsellors, psychologists, psychiatrists and others with a degree and working with adolescents with mental health difficulties who are (or are likely to be) involved in legal issues.
