PERU is proud to support the Academy for Social Justice Commissioning evening seminars in the North West. This seminar features Shadd Maruna, Professor of Criminology at Queen’s University, Belfast and Emma Cluley, Managing Editor of the Probation Journal.

This free seminar will explore the latest thinking on identity psychology and its implications for probation practice.

Ideas about identity and how it is constructed and changes over time have been central to Shadd’s work on desistance from offending and continue to be key areas of interest in his research.

Emma will draw on the back catalogue of the Probation Journal and her own experience as a probation officer to relate ideas on identity to working with personality disorder.
