International Conference on Terrorism, Extremism and Mental Health Services

This conference will be of interest to mental health professionals – psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, nurses and managers – and also to counter-terrorism practitioners and academics in terrorism studies. The growing evidence that mental disorders are of importance in this area, contrary to the previous consensus, will be explored. More importantly, the conference aims to begin to consider the practical implications of this for practitioners and how multi-agency approaches may be helpful.

30 June - 1 July 2015, London

Presenters: Drs. Rachel MacKenzie & Troy McEwan 

The intensive two-day workshop provides participants with accredited training in the administration and use of the Stalking Risk Profile: Guidelines for the assessment and management of stalkers (SRP). In the course of the two days, participants will gain a comprehensive understanding of the various motivations for stalking, the different types of risk present in stalking situations and the identification and implementation of appropriate treatment and management strategies.  They will be trained in how to use the SRP to provide opinions to assist the courts with sentencing and support other referral services in the development of comprehensive treatment and management plans for stalkers.
