Mowbray Woodwards brings together leading experts for annual conference

Mowbray Woodwards brings together leading experts for annual conference

In October 2019 Mowbray Woodwards hosted their second annual conference bringing together leading practitioners and experts in the field of offender management. Over 100 delegates attended for this training and knowledge sharing seminar, including representatives from the probation service, counsellors and therapists, legal professionals, the police, support workers, charities and schools all of whom are engaged in the management, treatment, therapy and support of sex offenders in the community. The conference invited discussion and debate on best practice, innovation and future development of treatment and support services.

Matthew Graham, Partner and Head of Criminal Law at Mowbray Woodwards hosted and led the conference alongside Dr Ruth Tully, Managing Director of Tully Forensic Psychology. They were joined by a panel of experts including forensic psychologist Dr Sara Northey, independent forensic practitioner Diane Wills and Michael Sheath from the Lucy Faithfull Foundation.

Matthew Graham said, “The conference was reminded of the impact of sexual offending on everyone caught up in the cycle of harm.  Sexual offending devastates lives, causing profound and irreparable damage, leaving a trail of destruction.  I heard clearly through the shared experiences of the panellist’s and delegates why it is that preventing such offending must be an urgent and more important topic than ever before, both in the first instance and through reducing reoffending.  Seeing the depth of knowledge, experience and commitment from across the sector gives me confidence that collaboratively we can succeed. We have been overwhelmed with the positive and helpful feedback and suggestions for next year’s conference.”
