Behind and Beyond Bars: Young offenders, sexual health, and fathering programmes: a public lecture
14 October 2010, 4pm-6pm
Old Staff Common Room,
Lanyon Building, Queen’s University
Our first public lecture successfully brought together a number of academics in QUB who are interested in young people, fatherhood and the prison system with key stakeholders involved in the development of services relating to improving health and wellbeing of young people in Northern Ireland, such as West Belfast Partnership, NIACRO, Opportunity Youth, Extern, The Coda project and Include Youth as well as representatives from the Health and Social Care Trusts of Northern Ireland.
Dr Katie Buston, from the Medical Research Council/Chief Scientist Office Social and Public Health Sciences Unit in Glasgow, shared the results of an extensive programme of research on young offenders, sexual health, and fathering programmes in the public lecture.
Ahead of the public lecture, Mr. Gary Alcock the Governor of HydeBank, the Young Offenders Centre in Northern Ireland (and Respondent to the lecture) said:
“I am delighted to have this opportunity to engage with research which explores how the young men in my custody can expand their knowledge in relation to the risk of Sexual Transmitted Infections (STIs) and focus on the responsibilities of fatherhood.”
