CALL FOR PAPERS—What Works in Managing Young People who Offend: A Rapid Review of Evidence.
Deadline for receipt of papers: 21 February 2014.
Forensic Psychological Services at Middlesex University has been commissioned by the Ministry of Justice to conduct a Rapid Review of Evidence on what works in managing young people who offend, aged 10-18 years. We are writing to ask for your assistance please in helping us to obtain relevant literature. As you would expect, we are conducting searches of many academic and non-academic databases. Additionally, we believe that some of the work on processes that are important to the management of young people who offend, may not have been published, or may not come up on the searches. We have been tasked with considering HOW what works in youth justice, works (or doesn’t), with a particular focus on relationships between service users and service providers. View the specific questions we have been asked to review.
The findings from the review are expected to be published later this year by the Ministry of Justice on the .GOV.UK website and will be of interest internationally to policy makers and practitioners across the criminal justice system.
We would be extremely grateful if you would please alert us to any unpublished material and, or, material published in non-academic places / documents / reports / briefings (i.e. grey literature) that is in the public domain. Ideally, if you would attach the documents in an e-mail to us, that would be most helpful. Otherwise, if you would please provide a full reference and its source, then that would also be very useful. Additionally, if you have recently published some peer reviewed work yourself or, know of work that may be subsumed within a bigger study and thus not be likely to come up on searches, do please send it to us.
We have set up a dedicated non-confidential e-mail address for anything that you are able to provide us with—please send any electronic materials to: WWYJ@mdx.ac.uk If you wish to protect your materials, then you may find it simplest to compress and password protect the file using a package such as Winzip or 7Zip (please see instructions below for how to do this).
If you only have hard copies, please send them to:
Professor Joanna R Adler.
Department of Psychology.
London NW4 4BT.
We are working to a very short timescale, so need to receive all materials as promptly as possible and by the 21stFebruary, 2014 at the latest please.
PLEASE NOTE that we are not requesting confidential or sensitive materials that could identify individuals, if you have any such materials that you think we should see, please send us an e-mail and we will provide you with details of how to send in such materials.
We also intend to hold a workshop on the 18th March, 2014 in London, to discuss the preliminary themes of the rapid evidence assessment with relevant parties so as to help ensure that the final report produced will appropriately represent the evidence base. If you are interested in attending this event and inputting into the work further, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org briefly stating why you would like to take part (places will be strictly limited).
Lastly, we will update progress of this rapid review of evidence, on Twitter and the FPS web-pages. Please see www.mdx.ac.uk/fps or follow us @fpsatmdx and do please pass this e-mail on to people you think may be interested in contributing to the evidence review.
Thank you in advance for your help with this important project. Please do not hesitate to contact a member of the team with comments or questions.
