Registration deadline: 6 November

This event brings together 3 innovative psychological approaches to reducing violent crime. Levels of violent crime, and knife crime in particular, are so common that they appear to be accepted as part of modern youth’s recreation. The day includes sessions on co-producing solutions with young people, restorative justice and the ground breaking work of Karyn McCluskey in Glasgow using public health approaches.
