Forensic Psychology Training

Since its inception, the Forensic Psychology Centre has persistently sought to bring world-class leaders in both the practice and research of forensic psychology to Queensland.

We have a proud track record of uniting our accomplished colleagues from across the industry to provide best-practice training, workshops and seminars, and engage in the process of continuous education and development. We see this as an important facet of ensuring that all FPC practitioners have access to the best training.

It also places us as an organisation that strives to be at the forefront of best practice. The following are examples of industry training previously sourced and co-ordinated by the FPC:
