About the event

Forensic Psychology conference


Every year OUPS holds an applied psychology conference, inviting top psychologists to talk on a specific area of psychology to give delegates the opportunity to hear experts in the field present up to date research on a specific area of psychology and to provide a forum for informed discussion. In 2025 our conference will be on 'Forensic Psychology'.

The conference is designed to bring together psychologists with an expertise in both so-called pure and applied aspects of criminal offending. It will look at the developmental roots of criminal behaviour, what maintains such behaviour as well as the evolutionary significance of psychopathy. The conference will look at interventions to prevent the emergence of criminal behaviour and raise the issue of possible treatments. It will examine how juries make their decisions in the case of rape trials and the legal aspects of domestic violence. The most extreme examples of psychopathy, mass and serial killing, will be examined and the question raised as to what leads to such a trajectory.

Provisional list of speakers and their topics:

Clare Allely (Salford University):  “Mass killing”

Danielle Georgiou (Psychologist and Women's Trauma and Wellbeing Advocate)) “Women in the criminal justice system, abuse and trauma”

Dan Rusu (Birmingham City University): title to be announced.

Kathryn Sharratt  (University of Huddersfield):  "Police Wellbeing"

Sandie Taylor and Lance Workman (University of South Wales) “Understanding psychopathy”.

Frederick Toates ( Open University):  “Sexual serial killing”

Dominic Willmott (University of Loughborough) “Jury decision-making in rape trials”.

What to expect

The lectures are conducted in management conference seminar rooms within the University campus, and you will be provided with a timetable of talks and abstracts before you arrive. Registration is from 3pm on Friday, dinner from 6pm and the Friday evening lecture at 8pm. The conference finishes at 3pm on Sunday.

You can choose how you spend your time. If you book the residential package then you will have a very comfortable ensuite room in management conference facilities complete with bedding, towels, a hairdryer, coffee-making facilities and desk. Wifi is also included. The training centre has a small exercise room within the building and you also have complimentary access to the  gym and pool on campus, so if you do want to relax then there is the option to do so.

The cost is inclusive of all meals, including Friday night and Saturday night dinner. There are no extra costs involved (except for drinks at the bar!). As well as your room and all meals this includes refreshments at break times, handouts which are only available to attendees, welcome drink on Friday night. Non-residential places are also available, please contact us for details if you would like this option.

The welcome drinks and psychology book stall are both excellent places to meet other students. All students and staff wear name badges, so it is easy to find somebody to help if you have any questions. You can enjoy your meals with a group of delegates in the comfortable dining room. The food is fresh, healthy buffet style catering, and there is something to entice everyone.

Finally, whilst most students leave exhausted from the learning and socialising, they comment that it is such a worthwhile weekend, and we see many of them each year as they progress their studies and also after graduating!


The weekend takes place at Radcliffe Conference and Training Centre, University of Warwick. Both accommodation and lectures are located in the same building unless you have been informed otherwise.
