Autistic Spectrum Disorder in forensic settings

Event Information

People with Autism Spectrum Disorders are arguably less likely than the general population to engage in law-breaking behaviour. A small minority though do and many in that group are perceived by mental health and criminal justice agencies to be particularly challenging.

This full-day, virtual and interactive training programme with Prof Conor Duggan OBE, Prof Essi Viding, Prof Peter Langdon, Prof Regi Alexander, Dr Harm Boer, Ms Sheena Foster, Ms Verity Chester and Dr Sam Tromans will cover a range of topics in this area that are relevant for the practising clinician. 

This conference will take place online where we hope to replicate the same learning experience as a face to face conference, just without the travelling and with the added benefit of recordings of the course. Participants will be able to ask questions throughout.

Please note that only those registered in advance for the event will be able to view content afterwards on demand. 

In order to allow us time to add everyone to the online platform, booking will close at 5pm on Tuesday 22 September. It will not be possible to make bookings on the day.

This conference will explore Autistic Spectrum Disorder in forensic settings, with presentations from Professor Regi Alexander, Sheena Foster, Professor Conor Duggan, Dr Sam Tromans, Dr Harm Boer, Professor Essi Viding, Professor Peter Langdon and Verity Chester.
