Excellent course. I like the subject covered. Concise, and to the point. I would definitely recommend this course to my colleagues.
Dr. Helen Farrell did an incredible job at explaining the different parts of forensic psychiatry. It was easy to understand and easy to memorise for the upcoming quizzes and tests. Speaking of, the small quizzes at the end of each lecture really helped me understand what I knew and what I didn't.
