Call for Papers and Workshops: 13th International Conference on Offenders With Intellectual and Developmental Disability
10-11 April 2014 Northumbria University, Newcastle, United Kingdom
This two-day conference is recognised as the foremost opportunity, in the UK and internationally, for reflection and sharing for services providing care for offenders with a learning disability (LD) and/or developmental disabilities, including autism, both in the public and independent health and social care sectors and the criminal justice system.
The conference, and its published proceedings, creates a platform for this speciality, often regarded as a minority interest by both health and criminal justice mainstream services.
Featuring presentations from eminent international speakers, as well as smaller scale research and innovations in the concurrent sessions, this conference will provide delegates with an opportunity to learn new strategies and share good practice. The conference also offers unparalleled networking opportunities for delegates from the UK and overseas.
Papers/workshops are invited from any discipline or perspective relevant to the management or care of learning disabled offenders or those requiring similar services. Proposals by practitioners, service users, decision and policy makers, as well as by academics, students, researchers and advocates are welcomed.
Papers are allocated 40 minutes and workshops 60 minutes in a concurrent format.
The organisers will consider papers relating to the following topics:
Models of care for effective interventions (clinical interventions)
Research programmes and results
Education and training
Advocacy and user issues
Autism spectrum disorders including Asperger syndrome
Offending focused interventions
Abstracts should be limited to a maximum of 500 words and submitted using the abstract submission form..
