Course description

“Enhancing Forensic Decision Making” is a five-hour live training course that focuses on knowledge and practical skills regarding how to recognize and minimize potential bias for better forensic decision making. It covers brain and cognitive issues relating to cognitive and human factors in decision making. It then connects the cognitive science issues to practical and specific issues in forensic work. It also provides practical solutions to address weaknesses and best practices for forensics.

In addition to focusing on specific ways to enhance forensic decision making, this course will provide in-depth tools to participants to enable them to enhance and enrich their professional abilities.

The course also includes a discussion of challenging court cases that highlighted cognitive factors in forensic decision making. The training is directly relevant to ISO/IEC 17020 and ISO/IEC 17025 requirements (e.g., for impartiality and freedom from bias). It is also directly connected to the 2009 National Academy of Sciences report on forensic science “Strengthening Forensic Science in the United States: A Path Forward.”
