Brain Injury and the Criminal Justice System
October 19, 2017 –
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.
