    Chelsea Troutman

    I completed the Forensic Disability Course through The University of Melbourne in 2011, and it has never stopped giving.

    Working as a practitioner in the community across clients with complex needs, I am constantly revisiting the resources, reading material, and lecture notes provided within the course. The content still remains relevant to my practice daily. I found the course to provide a great foundation for working with forensic disability, and it has definitely strengthened my confidence in assessment and behavioural treatment of persons with a disability and complex needs. I also greatly appreciate the professional networks established through engagement with this course.
