Join us for a captivating exploration into the minds of offenders. In tonight’s talks, we delve into the intricate web of psychological factors that drive individuals to deviate from social norms and engage in criminal behaviour. From understanding environmental influences to unravelling the complexities of personality traits and cognitive distortions, we will attempt to uncover the psychological mechanisms that shape the paths of those who veer towards the world of crime. Prepare to challenge your perceptions and deepen your understanding in this journey into the psychology of criminals.

Creating space for Desistance: Stopping reoffending in its tracks

Dr Jacqueline Rappoport (Lecturer)
Casting a shadow over the potential for justice involved individuals are the barriers constructed both by the individuals themselves and by the systems which they are trying to navigate once out of incarceration. As an interdisciplinary practitioner and researcher working in forensic and mental health services for over twenty years, this talk will cover some of the lessons learned on how to support individuals with a history of offending to change the narrative of their lives under the constraints of the current political and socioeconomical climate.

Aggression in the human brain: anger, empathy and psychopathic traits

Dr Frederike Beyer (Senior Lecturer in Psychology)
What makes some people more likely to become aggressive than others? In this talk, I will explore some of the brain areas involved in how we respond to provocation and threat. We will also look at different types of empathy, and how they are involved in different types of aggression. I will present research findings on links between fear, anger, and making sense of other people’s actions. Besides a person’s own characteristics, whether someone becomes aggressive when provoked depends on the situation as well: for example, whether or not there is an option to escape.
