DFP conference from home: The influence of the past six months

Due to the Division of Forensic Psychology's Annual Conference being postponed until June next year, we hope you will be able to fire up your laptops, and join us for this alternative event.

We are streaming over two afternoons (15th - 16 September) and will be exploring the challenges and dynamic approaches taken within forensic psychology to adapt and grow within these ever changing times.

We are hoping this event will be responsive to the current discussions being held within our work, and are relevant to the issues influencing our practice at the current time. 

Our two main themes are: 

Day 1: Impact of the Pandemic on Forensic Psychology

Themes of sessions so far for day one include: changes and processes from the parole board during the pandemic; challenges and responses within practice during the pandemic within high secure and personality services; working within private practice during the pandemic; the contributions of cyber psychology within forensic practice; HMPPS working with children and staff throughout the pandemic; and the impact of trainee practices during the pandemic. 

Day 2: Diversity and inclusion in forensic psychology 

Themes of sessions so far for day two include: HMPPS group presentation reflecting on disparity, the Lammy review, CJS, current projects and what next; experiences of BAME trainees and challenges of careers in forensic psychology; Culturally responsive forensic practice; Increasing access for BAME individuals on the OPD Pathway; More to be added.

While we advocate and encourage attendance at our live webinar/online events to receive the complete experience, we also understand that circumstances happen that mean delegates can no longer attend. This event will be recorded and delegates registered for the event will receive the recording within 10 working days of the event. The recording is for personal use of the registered delegate only and must not be shared. Please understand that in some cases speakers do not give permission to be recorded and this is outside of our control.
