  1. The mp3 of “Change or Control? Why risk is risky” does not work in Windows Media Player. I get this error message – “Windows Media Player cannot play the file. The Player might not support the file type or might not support the codec that was used to compress the file.”

  2. Fergus’ audio of his presentation why risk is risky ends at power point slide 8 – appreciate you were recording with new app on iPod – do you intact have the rest of the talk saved? If so would be great if you could post so we can hear it/direct others to it.

  3. Ignore previous post with spelling error –

  4. HI Shadd, Fergus,
    Is there any places available at the Glasgow/Belfast seminars as due to my university email address becoming defunct I have missed the Sheffield seminar. Would greatly appreciate it if you could grant me a place at either venue.

      • I’m just getting it now too. Sorry Paul. We need a better system for sending these comments. There is a space at the part-two seminar in Belfast on the 25 June, but it is probably too late for you to try to get over for that now, and may not make as much sense not having had the chance to attend the first workshop. Apologies, but the DVD’s will be out very (very) soon! shadd

  5. Dear Colleague

    I am writing to you with regards to our forth coming Crime & Deviance Conference “Life Behind Bars”.

    The conference is being held in Sheffield during the month of 10th of June 2014.

    The conference will start at 10.00am, with registration from 09.30 – 09.55am. The conference will finish at approximately 3.45pm. The documents attached is the conference brochure, which outlines the conference day and a booking form.

    For a group costing please email stating the number of seats potentially required.

    Delegates attending are advised to bring with them a packed lunch and refreshments.

    Conference Outline
    The morning period starts off with the students discussing their ideal prison setting, i.e. would they have capital punishment for certain crimes, would prisoners have a cell to themselves or would they share the facilities with another prisoner? What would they be allowed in their cells – televisions, playstation/Xbox, telephone, computers, the internet? Would there be rehabilitation and educational courses and who would go on these. Would we have prisoners working whilst Behind Bars and in the community? Would they receive a wage for this? Should people that have committed only one crime be punished in the same way as a person that continually commits crime? Crime & Deviance paper SCLY4.

    The students are asked to do this exercise in groups where a spokesperson is then asked to say what their prison would be like. From this exercise the students are then introduced to the ex-offenders who will talk about how they managed to be detained, their experiences of prison life, what it is really like to be detained for several years (labelling) and how living in the community with a criminal record can affect your life after being released from prison.

    The afternoon session is where we try and split the students up in to smaller groups with the individual speakers. The groups are to allow the students a better opportunity to ask the speakers in more depth about their crime/s, their opinion regarding prisons, victim empathy (restorative justice) and anything else that the students may wish to ask and know.

    I would be grateful if you would email us at your earliest convenience the number of places you would like to be reserved, as this would assist in our initial preparation. Reservations will need to be confirmed by mailing the booking form to TLC Conferences. Please disseminate the brochure to your fellow colleagues.

    If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact the office on 0845 3705678, or you can email our office direct at info@truelifeconferences.co.uk

    Kind regards
