Description:This two-year Ontario College Diploma program prepares students for employment in a variety of careers in the community and justice services field.

Students also study topics including addictions, mental illness, group dynamics, behaviour management, communications, special populations (such as Aboriginal and female offenders) and the role of victims in the criminal justice system.

Qualified students in Levels 03 and 04 participate in a field placement in a community and/or justice service agency where they are provided opportunities to develop communication and interpersonal skills. Emphasis is placed on behavioural assessment and case management, report writing and building professional client-worker relationships appropriate to the setting. This work-integrated learning experience also allows students to make immediate and significant contributions to the field.
