3 Foreword Foreword Prof. Dr. med. Michael Thali Foreword Foreword Dr. med. Carole Kherfouche 2 Forensics, which has grown in presence in recent years through various television programs, is in constant interrelation with society. We strive for constant optimization in the demanding and sensitive area of ​​forensics. The interdisciplinary "Forensic Sciences" is based on the experiences and efforts of specialists from the operative business of criminal justice as well as on the knowledge imparted by university lecturers. The close connection between theory and practice is the unmistakable and proven seal of approval that has established the course's long-standing success. The "Forensic Sciences" course is offered by the Medical Faculty of the University of Zurich (UZH) in cooperation with the Institute for Victim Protection and Treatment of Offenders (IOT). The degrees “Diploma of Advanced Studies UZH in Forensic Sciences” (DAS) and the title “Master of Advanced Studies UZH in Forensic Sciences” (MAS) are awarded. The aim of these universities is to increase the qualifications and competence of people who work in the field of forensics. Technical and methodological knowledge is imparted on modern crime-oriented therapy techniques in the treatment of offenders, on risk analysis procedures and on the acquisition of overarching knowledge and skills. The following thematic specializations are also offered: Forensic Expert Assessment, Forensic Risk Assessment, Forensic Therapy (Forensic Psychotherapy) Forensic Specialization in Corrections, especially psychiatrists, psychologists and social workers , Employees of the law enforcement agencies, lawyers and other specialists who deal with forensic issues and / or the assessment of victims and perpetrators. We have been offering this course for many years in excellent cooperation with the IOT and are proud that everyone involved sees it as a great benefit. We are pleased that you have also decided in favor of this and that you will contribute to the mutual exchange associated with it. Prof. Dr. med. Michael Thali President of the Study Course Commission The Institute for Victim Protection and Treatment of Offenders was founded in 1999 by specialists from the fields of forensics, justice, the penal system as well as victim and probation services. At that time, the aim and purpose of the association was to promote the development of quality-oriented treatment and counseling offers in the field of violent and sexual offenses and at the same time to create a platform for a technically high-quality interdisciplinary discourse. Above all, the question of how the most effective victim protection can be achieved was preoccupied. This question has not lost its importance around 10 years later. On the contrary. Victim protection is only possible, however, if interventions are well coordinated and their effects are continuously scientifically checked. Methods of risk assessment and risk management in the broadest sense are of equal interest. Furthermore, effective victim protection is only possible through a well-coordinated, professional and, above all, interdisciplinary approach. For over 10 years now, the IOT, in cooperation with the University of Zurich, has been successfully implementing the goal of training various professional groups in the field of forensic sciences and using interdisciplinarity as a strength of the training. A degree in forensic science creates interesting career prospects. One example is the admission as a forensic expert in the canton of Zurich for specialist psychologists and psychiatrists with a degree in forensic assessment. We look forward to welcoming you to the 6th course! Dr. med. Carole Kherfouche Head of Course 3 Prof. Dr. med.

4 Program overview Program overview Program overview Topic Forensic psychiatry with its therapeutic and expert fields of activity is understood as an independent specialist area. It originally developed from classical psychiatry. Modern concepts of forensic psychiatry show a high degree of specialization. They incorporate knowledge from a wide range of specialist areas into new theories and practical skills, which has resulted in a new specialist area of ​​their own. Similar to how forensic medicine broke away from pathology as an independent subject, forward-looking forensics is facing a similar process of emancipation. Structure of the teaching staff Methodology Diploma of Advanced Studies in Forensic Sciences (DAS) The two-year basic course is divided into the 5 modules therapy, law and enforcement, prognosis and expert opinions, perpetrators and victims, and group dynamics. Participants must provide proof of performance for each module. The third year serves to specialize and deepen in a focus area and ends with a DAS degree (a total of 35 ECTS credits). The following specializations are offered: Forensic Risk Assessment Forensic Expert Assessment Forensic Psychotherapy Forensic Specialization in Corrections The forensic sciences are carried out by the Medical Faculty of the University of Zurich in cooperation with the institute for victim protection 5 and perpetrator treatment IOT carried out. Target audience Admission criteria Course objective The course is aimed at specialists who, in the expert, prognostic and therapeutic area, or in the execution, have to deal with people who are accused of violent and / or sexual offenses or who have been convicted of such offenses. This is open to specialists in the field of psychiatry, psychotherapy, the judiciary and the execution of sentences and measures, as well as practitioners from related fields. The participants have a university degree at Master’s level and have professional experience. People with a comparable qualification can be admitted "sur dossier". When selecting the participants, attention is paid to the best possible interdisciplinary composition and great importance is attached to the professional background and personal suitability. In the first two years, basic knowledge of all forensic specializations is imparted. They serve to get to know each other and to gain a deeper understanding of the fields of activity, the technical areas of activity and responsibility as well as the related problems of the individual disciplines of forensics. This is linked to the idea of ​​providing forensic experts as well as forensic therapists and law enforcement specialists as well as experts from related professional groups with comprehensive knowledge of therapeutic settings, expert opinions and risk assessments. The specialist knowledge imparted through the forensic science course can also be valuable for professionals in related professions. Thus, the course is also aimed at people from victim and perpetrator counseling, criminal prosecution, social education and lawyers. In the third year, the specialization is deepened. The participants withdraw into the specialization groups with the experts and are trained accordingly. In the fourth year, an MAS degree is offered with a further specialization. Master of Advanced Studies in Forensic Sciences (MAS) By combining the DAS with an additional specialization, an MAS with a total of 60 ECTS credits can be acquired in a further academic year and after writing a thesis. Since the MAS year only takes place every third year, an additional 24 months must be expected to acquire the MAS diploma. All speakers are recognized specialists from the university, clinical or educational environment. All lecturers are clinically active in their field. If necessary, additional speakers will be called in. The courses aim to convey the course content in a practical manner and are based on current forensic issues. Knowledge is imparted in a didactic way and combines lectures with practical exercises to deepen what has been learned. All event forms are based on contemporary adult education methods and are based on study documents specially designed for this course. Based on the conviction that qualitative improvements in the area of ​​violent and sexual crime can only be achieved through interdisciplinary cooperation between experts from different areas, an interdisciplinary approach is also pursued here. The course managers observe and analyze the current courses with the help of course evaluations from the participants. If necessary, the program can be changed at short notice in favor of current topics.
