Meet your fellow forensic psychologists in Bristol

24 May 2017

Our Division of Forensic Psychology’s annual conference takes place next month – and there’s still time to register.

Running from 13-15 June, the conference takes place at the Mercure Bristol Grand Hotel.

The programme features three invited symposia.

These will look at how psychology can play a role in the representation of crime in the media, at lifespan issues in the criminal justice system and at the application of psychology to terrorist and extremist offending.

There will also be a special event for forensic psychologists who have recently become Chartered members of the Society.

The keynote speakers will be:

  • Professor Andrew Day on ‘Current directions in offender rehabilitation’
  • Professor Itiel Dror on ‘Forensic psychology decision making: the biasing effects of irrelevant contextual information’
  • Professor Nick Hardiwck on ‘Indeterminate sentences for public protection – a stubborn stain on the justice system’
  • Professor Cathy Widom on ‘Does violence really cycle?”

You can find full details of the 2017 DFP annual conference, including the academic and social programmes, on this website. You can register via that page too.
