Child and Adolescent Forensic Psychiatry Track

In December 2008 the Child and Adolescent Residency Program and the Psychiatry and Law Program entered into a partnership to formalize a Child and Adolescent Forensic Psychiatry Track for the purposes of furthering forensic training for child and adolescent psychiatrists.

The Child and Adolescent Track (CAT) of the Charles E. Steinberg Fellowship in Psychiatry and the Law is designed for the graduate of a Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Residency who wishes to pursue forensic training with a focus on child and adolescent issues. New for the 2009-2010 academic year, the CAT includes the following clinical rotations and seminars:

  • Family courts referral of adolescents charged with crimes or facing designation as Persons in Need of Supervision (PINS)
  • Law Guardian referrals regarding child custody evaluations
  • Participation in the evaluation and treatment of court-referred adolescents through the Sexual Behavior Treatment Program
  • Child Forensic Psychiatry Seminar the includes study of child forensic psychiatric landmark cases
