Category: Conference Brain Injury and the Criminal Justice System

October 19, 2017

The XCentre
Commercial Road
Exeter, EX2 4AD

Incidence of brain injury amongst the prison population is significantly higher than in the wider population. This conference looks at the theories surrounding this, as well as aiming to equip those who work with people with brain injuries within the criminal justice context, with the skills and understanding needed to face the challenges that this can pose.

The conference features speakers from a range of backgrounds, including Professor Huw Williams from the University of Exeter’s Centre for Clinical Neuropsychology Research and Liz Partridge, Justice Project Manager at Headway UK. Sessions during the day will consider many different aspects of the topic, including early intervention, experiences within the judiciary system, reparative justice and rehabilitation.

The conference costs £30 per person for a full day of presentations with a buffet lunch,  and will be eligible for CPD and APIL points.

A booking form is also attached,  but if you have any questions or if you would like to find out more then please get in touch, by calling 01392 211822 or emailing learning@headwaydevon.org.uk.
