DD310 Course overview day
This day gives an overview of the module "DD310 - Counselling and Forensic Psychology". The material presented covers the entire course and attending these sessions gives students the advantage of understanding the framework of the course and being mindful of what to concentrate on for the TMAs in the module.
The day is aimed at students about to start the module but is also beneficial for those not currently studying it who are thinking of registering for future presentations.
Students say that these days are inspirational and packed with content, making them excellent value in terms of time and money. As there will be other courses running at the venue for the day, you can also take the opportunity to meet other students and tutors from these courses.
Registration will take place from 9.30am. Lectures will start at 10.00 am. The day will finish at approximately 4.30pm. The timetable for the event can be downloaded here LOUPS 2018 DD310 timetable.
Tutors and programmes
DD310 Counselling and forensic psychology: investigating crime and therapy
Dr Georgina Barnett works as a tutor on D240, E102 and Y032 at the Open University and has a Doctorate in Counselling Psychology. Georgina worked for ten years in Forensic Psychology before turning to the field of Counselling Psychology in which she has worked in various clinical settings. She is currently working in private practice.
The four sessions to be presented are:
- Mad or bad? A historical overview of the forensic and mental health settings
- Criminal identities
- Sex and crime
- Is rehabilitation possible? Approaches and complications
Please note that we will have available places on the day but all tickets will be £40 (no member discount). We therefore recommend that you book in advance to benefit from our members discount (if applicable).
Please note that this is a paperless event.
To be more environmentally friendly and to help manage our prices we will make electronic copies of any relevant handouts available to all registered attendees, either in advance so that those who need printed versions have plenty of time to organise these, or shortly after the event if the tutor has decided that this is more appropriate for their lecture. These are for attendees' personal use and may not be shared.
We'd like to thank our tutors for working to ensure that their presentations do not contain material to which they do not have copyright and for making them available in this way. And in advance, we'd like to thank all of you who support us in actively contributing toward a paperless environment and saving a few trees along the way !
