Course Description

The Certificate Program in Social Work in the Criminal Justice System is designed to prepare graduate professionals for careers in correctional settings such as prisons, family courts, beggars` homes, special schools for boys and girls, and observation/rescue homes. The curriculum would also be beneficial for other non-governmental organisation (NGO) experts that operate in correctional settings. The six-month training is available in both English and Hindi. A student must gain 16 credits, eight of which are for theory and eight of which are for practicum. Criminal justice social workers may specialise in a number of areas, including dealing with the re-entry population or teenagers, as well as assisting individuals in locating housing or jobs upon their release from incarceration. Criminal justice social workers provide psychotherapeutic treatment to those involved in the legal or criminal justice systems who are struggling with trauma or serious mental health concerns. Psychosocial evaluations are used to ascertain underlying social, emotional, developmental, or psychiatric requirements. Then they locate the resources necessary to satisfy those requirements, such as coping skills, case management, life skills development, and home visits.
