The Application of Psychology to Large Organisations: Prisons as a Case Study.

Paul Murphy

Wednesday 7th October 2015

The Canada Room,

Lanyon Building

Queen's University Belfast

Psychology has, or should have, broad application to the efficient functioning of large organisations.  Prisons and the operation of prison systems is a case in point.  However, it can be a challenge to align what the organisation and the various stakeholders within it see as the priority for psychology with what the psychology service might see as its optimal use.  This presentation will consider the role and development of the psychology service within the Irish Prison Service (IPS) and consider the comprehensive recommendations of a review of the IPS psychology service completed in June 2015, which potentially has significant implications for its future functioning.

Paul Murphy has recently retired from his position as Head of Psychology, Irish Prison Service.  Paul is a career prison psychologist and has extensive clinical experience with a variety of subgroups within the prison population.  Paul has been head of service for the past 15 years.  An important development during that time was broadening the recruitment base of the psychology service.  The service was originally established as an exclusively clinical psychology service, and in 2003 moved to a more diversified service with the recruitment of counselling and forensic psychologists.  This change facilitated a significant increase in the size of the IPS Psychology Service.

Third Forensic Psychology Research Symposium


The School of Psychology

Queens University Belfast

7th October 2015

 

The Division of Forensic Psychology Northern Ireland in partnership with NIBPS and The Psychology Departments of The Open University in Ireland, University of Ulster and Queen’s University Belfast would like to invite you to participate in a series of FREE events aimed at showcasing local forensic psychology-related research.

These quarterly symposia aim to provide individuals with a forum in which to present and exchange information which they have acquired through research, scholarship, and/or employment in a forensic-psychology related field.

The meetings would provide an ideal opportunity for Undergraduate/Postgraduate students to showcase their research thesis; for researchers to present relevant forensic-related research; and for practitioners to highlight and discuss salient aspects of their professional practice.

It is envisaged that each session will comprise a mix of informal group discussion, poster presentations, and more traditional symposium presentations (including question and answer sessions)

Submissions

Submissions are now open for the third symposium. 

If you would like to make a submission then please register before midnight on Wednesday 30th September 2015 by visiting this link.

Please note that you do not need to be a member of the Society to make a submission.
