Conference: Crime and Mental Health – Vulnerability and Resilience in the Face of Trauma

Tuesday, 15 March 2016, 09:00 – 18:00.

Green Templeton College, University of Oxford, 43 Woodstock Road, Oxford, OX2 6HG.

This conference has been generously funded by Green Templeton College, and has been organised as one of the events to celebrate the Centre for Criminology’s 50th anniversary and will take place on Tuesday 15 March, 2016. It will draw together a range of experts from criminology, psychiatry and law to discuss the experiences of vulnerable populations in the criminal justice system of England and Wales.

The day will start and end with plenary sessions, and the panels in between will include student and alumni presentations, in order to help to nurture the careers of young scholars working in this area. The first plenary and panel will focus on mental health of children and young people in the criminal justice system, with the second panel and final plenary focusing on adults.

Panel contributions will include papers on the vulnerabilities, trauma, and resilience/coping strategies of: those in prisons and immigration detention; those with autism in the criminal justice system; young people ‘at risk’ of offending and those within the youth justice system; and other topics.

This event is free and open to all, but places are filling quickly. To reserve a place go here.
