The FCRG are pleased to announce that, on Thursday 14th May, an exciting one-day conference will be taking place at the University of Lincoln, entitled Let’s Talk About Sex in Sexual Offending Research and Practice”.

The aim of the conference is to present cutting-edge theory and research related to the topic of sexuality and sexual offending. Specific topics include sexual interest assessment, sexual arousal and decision-making, risk intervention, anti-libidinal medication, psychopathy, sexual fantasising, and online child exploitation material.

Each forensic-focused staff member of the FCRG will present their most recent work, along with three keynote addresses from some of our external collaborators. These include:
Dr Alexander Schmidt (University of Luxembourg)
Dr Andreas Mokros (Psychiatric University Hospital, Zurich)
Dr Karen Harrison (University of Hull) and Dr Kerensa Hocken (HMP Whatton)

Each speaker will address the impact of their work in terms of how it can be applied to practice. As such, the event is aimed at those who work with individuals who have sexually offended or who are at risk of sexually offending. This includes professionals (and students) working in criminal justice, medical and mental health, academia, and other related-fields.

More information (including fees) is provided in this leaflet
