Our psychologists have a high level of training and professionalism. Our consultants bring national and international experience from a wide variety of forensic contexts. They are all registered with the Psychology Board of Australia, are members of the Australian Psychology Society and are registered Medicare providers. Consultants at Forensic Psychology Centre adhere to the highest standards of ethical and psychological practice to ensure they provide the best quality service to clients.
The basic principles of our approach derive from social learning theory and we are guided by a framework based on cognitive behavioural and relapse prevention treatment approaches. Our approach is constantly evolving based on current research findings and our clinical experience. We believe all our clients can change and that such change is best facilitated by treating them respectfully. We distinguish our clients’ actions from themselves as persons and we emphasize their strengths as well as targeting their deficits.
