The Wentworth Forensic Clinic (WFC) was formed as a result of the collaboration between the School of Psychology, UNSW, and Corrective Services New South Wales. The Wentworth Forensic Clinic was established to promote excellence in the training and professional development of Forensic psychologists in Australia and to support research and clinical practice within correctional and other forensic settings. Currently, the WFC delivers assessment and clinical intervention services to Community Corrections clients whilst providing opportunities for supervised training of students enrolled in the Master of Psychology (Forensic) program at UNSW. It also supports the professional development of qualified psychologists through training and potential internships.

The Wentworth Forensic Clinic provides assessment and intervention in a range of psychological problems including:

  • Abuse
  • Anger and conflict management
  • Anxiety disorders
  • Bereavement and grief
  • Domestic violence
  • Impulse control problems
  • Interpersonal and relationship problems
  • Mental health management
  • Mood disorders
  • Sexual offending
  • Stress management
  • Substance abuse issues, addictions and gambling
  • Violent offending

While the WFC is based at the Community Corrections City District Office at 13-15 Wentworth Avenue, Darlinghurst, services offered by the WFC exist off site as well, particularly within the eastern cluster of CSNSW institutional and community centres. The WFC has two main branches; clinical and research services. Further information about WFC can be found on our facts sheets for clients and CSNSW staff.
