The alarming rate of incarceration of offenders with mental illness (OMI) is a social justice issue, which counseling coursework and clinical training do not adequately address. We review literature supporting the need for forensic mental health counseling coursework, discuss how to design a class and develop forensic training sites, and discuss opportunities for OMI research. The presenters will share examples from their work, course and clinical site development, and research on this topic.
