On the 5th November this year, the School’s Forensic and Clinical Research Group (FRCG) organised a trip for 3rd year undergraduate students (who study ‘Psychology with Forensic Psychology’) to visit HMP Whatton. This was followed by a trip with the MSc Forensic Psychology students on the 17th November.
On both days, the Whatton staff gave up their time to talk to the students about what they do at Whatton in terms of treatment for sex offenders. In addition, two inmates kindly provided time to talk to the students, giving first-hand insights into the benefits of the programmes they had completed. One of the 3rd year students (Ryan Hesp) has written a piece about the trip, which nicely sums up the day. You can read Ryan’s full report on the FCRG blog.
