The Treatment of Forensic Clients in a COVID Environment

COVID-19 has created unique challenges in working with forensically-involved clients. The specialty of care, length of stay in jails and hospitals, and need to collaborate with various partners in the criminal justice system during ever changing times has led to the system of care re-evaluating how services are provided. Join us as we discuss the changes in the jail, court, state hospitals and community settings and learn what has been successful and what challenges remain.
