3rd International Correctional Research Symposium
 

3RD INTERNATIONAL CORRECTIONAL RESEARCH SYMPOSIUM

“MOTIVATION AND WELL-BEING OF CORRECTIONAL STAFF: HOW THEY MATTER AND WHAT CAN WE DO ABOUT IT?”

Event Date: 12-14 May 2020 

The Symposium aims to elaborate on questions, such as:

  • When (and how) do correctional staff in Prison and Community Services over the world work at their best?
  • What are the challenges and difficulties of correctional work – in prisons and in the community? What are the outcomes for staff?
  • Can we give examples of outstanding correctional staff? What difference can they make in offender rehabilitation? What is the evidence base?
  • Are there environments or types of leadership that can support staff well-being and increase motivation?
  • How do staff working in corrections innovate, or work creatively, to achieve good outcomes?
  • What supports correctional staff in their work? What supports them best in managing increasing complexity? Is more training the answer?
  • How can corrections staff successfully navigate job related stress?
  • Can we give examples of excellent workforce development?
  • What strategies are used to recruit, retain and reward staff?
  • Where are the gaps in research?

The Symposium would like to address these questions through panel sessions with researchers and practitioners, through plenary presentations and workshops.

If you are interested to present your vision on the above topics please send your abstract by 15 January 2020 to kirstenhawlitschek@europris.org

The Programme Committee will make a selection and inform you by the end of January if your presentation will be included in the Symposium.

You can also propose to combine several papers from different speakers into one 1.5 hour workshop. It will, however, be up to the Programme Committee to select either one paper or the suggested combination.

The Target groups of the Symposium are:

  • Academics / researchers
  • Prison staff
  • Prison Directors / Governors / Director Generals / Higher management

If you are not planning to present at the Symposium, but are interested to participate – do not forget to mark the dates in your calendar.

*Submissions must be made in English.
