Brain Injury & violent crime: A forensic exploration into the relationship between the injured brain and violent crime 26 January 2018 Individuals with brain injury are over represented in the prison population and there is a growing recognition of the presence brain injury amongst individuals with a history of offending behaviour. But what is the relationship between the damaged brain and crime? Are the reasons for violent offending among brain injured offenders different from that in non-brain injured offenders? Psychologists and neuropsychologists are often called upon to advise on issues of criminal responsibility, mitigation, sentencing and rehabilitation in offenders who also have a history of brain injury. A robust understanding of the psychological and neuropsychological issues of violent offending behaviour will serve to better inform the clinician assisting the courts, prisons and clinical services in the delivery of the best input into the assessment and management of the offender with brain injury This workshop will first provide participants with a theoretical understanding of violent aggression and sexual offending from the field of forensic psychology. This will then lead to a detailed exploration of the applicability of these models within a neuropsychological context as applied to the offender with brain injury. The workshop will discuss issues relevant to clinical practice in this area.
