Promoting Excellence In Psychological Health & Wellbeing

Proposal for a Forensic Psychology Subnetwork

28 Jan 21

Calling all aspiring, trainee and qualified forensic psychologists!

I am a Trainee Forensic Psychologist, having just completed my doctoral training and research with the University of Nottingham. I have worked in various forensic settings, including prison, secure hospitals and the community with most of my training focused on utilising an attachment-informed perspective to better understand the trajectory towards, and function of, harmful behaviour. As with all forensic settings, I am committed towards a future of less human suffering. I recently was awarded the Early Career Award by the forensic division of the British Psychological Society and, after an insightful presentation from the PPN South East to our NHS Trust a few months ago, am keen to develop a PPN South East Forensic Psychology Subnetwork to promote more learning, sharing and connection between aspiring, trainee and qualified Forensic Psychologists across the SE. I hope the platform will encourage membership and act as a forum to disseminate understandings of the role forensic psychology has in healthcare, academia and policy. If you work within an NHS funded forensic service, I would very much like to hear from you.  Please email me at This email address is being protected from spambots.

You can join the PPN SE here where you can also read more about the PPN and explore the network’s vision.

I look forward to hearing from you,

Caitlin Brown, BSc, MSc.

Trainee Forensic Psychologist, Oxford NHS Foundation Trust and Doctorate Candidate with the University of Nottingham.
