Reflection on what you learned from the fieldwork experience and how you can apply it in your professional life

In this module, conduct your first fieldwork on observations and interactions with forensic psychology professionals. Your interaction with these professionals can be face-to-face, as with a tour of a facility or an interview, or it can occur over the phone when face-to-face meetings are not practical. If you are unable to complete a face-to-face meeting, then follow up with your instructor.

Tasks:

  • Create a fieldwork report of your observations and interactions, including the following:
    • Name of the professional
    • The professional’s affiliation and agency’s affiliation
    • Degrees and licensure
    • Type of training in forensic psychology (if applicable)
    • Primary job responsibilities
    • Client population served
    • Any ethical conflicts the professional routinely encounters
    • Recommendations to a graduate student in forensic psychology
    • Other observations as deemed appropriate
    • Reflection on what you learned from the fieldwork experience and how you can apply it in your professional life
