Enhancing Justice: Vulnerable Populations

This two-day symposium will focus on applied practice and matters of current relevance for forensic psychologists and those working in the forensic, criminal justice, and related fields.

The symposium will follow a new and dynamic format where keynote presentations will be followed by a plenary session or masterclass, maximising opportunities for questions and discussion.
