London 27th September

 

About the event:

Violent and Sexual Offenders: Assessment, Treatment and Management

This one-day conference is aimed at all professionals interested in maximising their assessment and treatment impact by learning about the current evidence-based best practices for working with violent and sexual offenders.
The conference will be drawing on a range of pressing contemporary issues such as violent and sexual offenders, internet offenders, terrorists, violent gangs in prison, children at risk of being sexually exploited, and protective factors for aggression.
According to the crime statistics of England and Wales, there has been a reported 10% increase in crime in the last decade, with most of this being an increase in violent and sexual crimes. With the current climate of the country in mind, we bring you our new event called “Violent and Sexual Offenders: Assessment, Treatment and Management” where we consider factors relevant to those engaged in violent and sexual offending, why they do it and what we, as medical and health professionals, can do to aid in their treatment, assessment and management.

Chairing the event will be Professor Jane L. Ireland, a Chartered Psychologist, Forensic Psychologist, Chartered Scientist and violence treatment practitioner, based at the University of Central Lancashire and Ashworth Research Centre, Mersey Care NHS Trust. Professor Ireland has published numerous papers and written books dealing with the understanding and managing violence and sexual violence. This includes a recently published international handbook, also called “Violent and Sexual Offenders: Assessment, Treatment and Management,”.
The complexities of working with populations involved in violent and/or sexual offending is well recognised, leading to a breadth of involved academic and practitioners from criminal justice, mental health and community backgrounds. This workshop will appeal to a range of practitioners and/or academics working within the field who are keen to widen their understanding on the current state of knowledge in this interesting area of work.
