The graduate certificate in Forensic Rehabiliation Counseling provides insight to how forensic experts function within the legal system - upholding ethical standards through courtroom testimony and understanding the fiscal importance of forensic issues as they relate to personal injury, medical malpractice, life care planning, marital dissolution, product liability, or catastrophic injury. Curriculum is taught collaboratively by faculty of the GW Law School and the 7th ranked Rehabilitation Counseling program.
Graduates will demonstrate a working knowledge of the role that counselors provide within the legal system and of the legal processes. Graduates will also exhibit expertise in ethical standards expected of expert witnesses and demonstrate an understanding of the critical business aspects that breed success in a forensic counselor’s work. Counselors seeking additional education required for certification also benefit from this program as courses apply to the coursework required by state licensing boards to obtain counseling licensure
