This event explores issues surrounding individuals with autism spectrum disorders in secure environments including secure psychiatric care and the prison estate. It will cover issues such as the experiences of individuals with autism within these environments, staff’s understanding and knowledge of autism as well the assessment and treatment of this group within these environments. It will also explore how different features of autism spectrum disorder can contribute to different types of offending behaviour such as sexual offending. This event will cover these areas through accessible and engaging presentations from four clinical and/or academic researchers, which will be followed by debate and discussion involving the audience.
