Friday 22nd June is Forensic Friday

Is it possible to take someone with a history of the most serious criminal behaviour, and turn them into a useful member of society? Yes it is! Friday will be a day dedicated to some of the most important and cutting edge work in psychology anywhere in the world. Learn how, for example, even sexual offending by men with personality disorders can be treated.

Keynote speakers for Friday
Dr Naomi Murphy
, clinical lead at HMP Whitemoor, UK. Expert in treating some of the most challenging criminal behaviours in UK prisons today.

Dr Ashley-Christopher Fallon, Consultant Clinical Forensic Psychologist, Birmingham & Solihull Mental Health Foundation Trust, UK.


Saturday 23rd June is Smiley Saturday

We hear a lot in the media about toxic masculinity, and how men need to change. So is there any reason to feel positive about men and masculinity? Yes there is! Find out how and why it’s time that we started feeling better about men.

Keynote speaker for Saturday
Professor Matt Englar-Carlson,
California State University, US. Pioneer of the positive psychology/positive masculinity model of therapy. Influenced by positive psychology, this model sees the therapeutic value in emphasising and utilising men’s strengths rather than weaknesses. For example, men typically work well in groups (e.g. team sports), and some of these positive group dynamics might be considered for group therapy.


Special guest speakers

Dr Joe Rafferty, Chief Executive of Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust. Joe will tell us about his new project, the Zero Tolerance of Suicide training.

Glen Poole, author and research for Men’s Health Forum Australia. Glen will be updating us on his research on the causes of male suicide. This promises to be unmissable for those interested in this important topic.

Dr Sue Whitcombe, specialist in parental alientation. Sue will tell us about how parents can separate without alienating the children against the parents.

Dr Barry Cripps, founder of the BPS Sport & Exercise Psychology Division. Barry will tell us about the special relevance of Sport & Exercise Psychology to Male Psychology.
