MASTERCLASS CONTENT: This workshop focuses on psychological treatments for violent offenders. Firstly, we will consider the efficacy of psychological treatment programmes by drawing upon a recent meta-analysis conducted by staff in the Centre for Forensic Behavioural Science, to help elucidate the critical determinants of positive outcomes for people who have offended violently.

Further, since most violent offender treatments are delivered in custodial settings time is spent discussing risk and need profiles following treatment completion and pathways to sustained progress. We will consider how practitioners might apply learnings from this meta analysis to tailor their individual and group treatments for clients who have violently offended and we will seek to address critical issues like the most effective treatment mode, dosage and intensity requirements, as well as practical strategies for effective work.
