2.5 Hours | 2.5 CEs

Research Opportunity for Psychologists

Dear Colleague:


Greetings from Arizona State University and Princeton University!  We hope you will join us in learning more about our profession. We would appreciate your time and attention and, in return, offer 2.5 complimentary Continuing Education credits for your participation in this dynamic and didactic training. 


This project, funded by the National Science Foundation, is being performed to better understand how psychologists come to conclusions and make decisions in forensic examinations. It also includes personalized feedback to help you understand your own behaviors with a didactic portion with video instruction. We believe this project has the potential to assist in solving problems faced by many forensic mental health experts. You are invited to participate because you are a psychologist with forensically-related interests. 


This program is free. 

You will receive 2.5 hours of Continuing Education credits for your participation. Should you choose to engage this opportunity, you will first participate in a dynamic and interactive portion of the program (roughly 1 hour and 45 min) in which you read materials from a case and make judgments about the material, followed by tailored feedback about your performance and suggestions for how to improve your expert judgment. Then, a didactic portion of the course with video content will follow (roughly 45 min). Upon completion, you will receive a certificate for 2.5 hours of CE credit.
