My name is honorary professor Dr Geraldine Akerman I work at HMP Grendon, Chair of the Division of Forensic Psychology Executive Committee, visiting lecturer at Cardiff Metropolitan University and University of Birmingham. I have worked with men with sexual and other violent convictions since 1998. I have worked on prison service offending behaviour programmes and in a prison based therapeutic community. I have concentrated in my publications in exploring all aspects of the people I work with rather than simply if they are reconvicted. For instance I have written papers with residents regarding their experience of being a father and in prison. In my experience the index offence was the pinnacle of life experiences leading to that point. When we work with the men we look at what got them to that point. Being in a TC offers the opportunity of a more natural setting and strives to provide a safe environment in which to be able to explore this work. The rate of reconviction for sexual offences has a low base rate anyway but we tend to look at many other aspects, such as improving prison behaviour, less self harm, improving relationships etc.
Offence paralleling behaviour, sexual offending, Therapeutic Communities, impact of imprisonment.
