Mental Disorder, Learning Disability and Autism in the Youth Justice System: The Silent, Self-Enclosed Truth
Vicky Palmer will be presenting her Professional Doctorate research findings for the first time at this event. Vicky has been researching the manner in which mental disorder, learning disability and autism may be linked to offending behaviour by children and young people. The links will be examined in detail with some of the more prominent forms of mental health difficulties being highlighted as considerable contributing factors.
Vicky will reveal the prevalence of this triad of impairments among the youth offending populace and will discuss the means by which they may be assessed and diverted away from the criminal justice apparatus.
What you need to check before attending the event:
- Are you studying Psychology with Sociology and/or a Criminology module as part of BA Health and Social Care course? If so, you will need to check your module learning rooms to see if your lectures are still taking place.
