Continuing Education


Northwest Forensic Institute strives to heighten the standards of forensic mental health by providing local trainings with international experts at least twice a year. However, we are not offering colloquia currently due to the amount of time we are spending with the Oregon Forensic Evaluator Training Program initial and recertification trainings.

We invite mental health, medical, and legal professionals and those in training within these respective disciplines to attend our colloquiua. If you would like to be notified of upcoming trainings, please email us at and ask to join the mailing list.
