How can we support young people and their families who, for generations, have been involved in offending and/or antisocial behaviour? This question will form the focus of CYCJ’s free, one-day ‘Breaking the cycle: front page families’ conference.
Keynote speakers include Dr James Hoggett (University of South West England) who will discuss the impact of the Troubled Families agenda, and how to support young people and families who have a range of complex needs, including intergenerational offending behaviour. In addition, Dr Katherine Auty (Institute of Criminology at Cambridge University) will present her PhD research findings relating to genetic issues that may contribute to intergenerational offending behaviour.
There will also be an opportunity to hear of the experiences of those involved in delivering MST, FFT and Strengthening Families programmes in Scotland, as well as considering lived experience through Action for Children’s input on their services, told from the viewpoint of a young person.
The event will take place on Thursday 5 November 2015 from 9.15am – 4.15pm and will be held in the Collins Suite, University of Strathclyde. Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
Registrations for this event have now closed. Thank you to everyone who expressed an interest in this event. Resources from the event will be made available on the CYCJ website after the conference.
