Open to probation practitioners and managers only
Following a thematic inspection of recall culture and practice in probation in November, HMI Probation will be holding a special Insights seminar on 27th Jan for probation practitioners and managers. Join Chief Inspector of Probation Justin Russell and Lead Inspector David Miners, as they take you through the main findings of the inspection and highlight examples of good practice. The seminar will include case illustrations that met with the inspection standards, with a chance to ask questions at the end.
Witness online for yourself Oral Justice Questions in the House of Commons where ministers are held to account. Before the sitting you will be expertly guided through all the jargon and procedures by Stephen Hubbard, Deputy Head of the Briefing and Correspondence Team at Her Majesty’s Prison & Probation Service. You will then join the House by live link to watch proceedings. Finally there will be a Q & A session.
During this Academy for Social Justice event, Dr Warren Larkin will share his perspectives on why systems change is essential in order to prevent and mitigate the impacts of childhood adversity and to transform the health and wellbeing of future generations. He will be joined by Becky Haas from Tennessee, USA, who will share her experiences of creating trauma-informed communities. She will show how regional acceptance of ACEs has been a social determinant to health within rural Appalachia and the steps taken that can be replicated by cities around the world.
The recent Covid pandemic has demonstrated just how challenging risk assessment can be. In our personal and professional lives we are confronted with at times conflicting information, a range of potential “what ifs”, and numerous personal biases, values and beliefs that impinge upon our decision making. This web based lecture hosted by one of the foremost thinkers on risk will review some of the key challenges for risk assessors and present some good practice tips and “lessons learnt” from inquiries and investigations of risk failures in order to improve the decision making of practitioners and policy makers.

The personalisation and co-creation of public services represents a growing movement in public service reform.
Most simply, personalisation means that public services respond to the needs of people rather than service providers. In its more radical forms, it encompasses ‘co-creation’, an increasingly influential idea in public services often associated with social innovation, where people who use services work with professionals to design, create and deliver them. However, to date, many of the examples of personalisation and co-creation in public services have taken place in services where people’s participation is more or less voluntary.
The speakers have collaborated with Interserve to design a series of pilot interventions for people on probation supervision, culminating in a pilot called ‘MyDirection’. This pilot was funded as part of a Horizon 2020 project.
Co-creation of Service Innovation in Europe (COSIE). In this free seminar the speakers will discuss the development of MyDirection, its links to desistance theory and some key findings from its evaluation.
Please note you must be a member of the Academy to attend an event. Membership and services are free and you can join when booking your place on Eventbrite
Join Professor Ben Crewe (Deputy Director of the Prisons Research Centre and Professor of Penology and Criminal Justice, University of Cambridge), Dr Susie Hulley (Senior Research Associate, Prisons Research Centre) and Dr Serena Wright (Lecturer, Royal Holloway, University of London) as they talk about their research, exploring the ways in which long-term prisoners respond to their convictions, adapt to the various challenges that they encounter over many years of imprisonment, and re-construct their lives within and beyond the prison.
