Article
Full-text available
The traditional view of intimate partner violence (IPV) is that the perpetrator is male and the victim is female (Dobash, Dobash, Wilson & Daly, 1992). As a result of this, most research into victimisation experiences appears to be conducted with female victims of IPV (Morin, 2014), and research with male victims, and victims from the LGBTQ+ commun...
Article

The current study aimed to investigate gender differences within primary and secondary psychopathy and how cognitive empathy, emotional empathy, anxiety, and self-control were associated in a non-clinical sample. Men displayed significantly higher rates of primary psychopathy than women, but no significant difference was found for secondary psychop...
Presentation
Full-text available
This talk will discuss barriers to support that intimate partner violence (IPV) victims from the LGBT community face. Research examining IPV victimisation in the LGBTQ+ community is limited. IPV in same-sex relationships, or where the victim is transgender, is often hugely underreported and unrecognised (Morin, 2014) and there is little known about...
Article

Sexual offenders that can access a positive support network within their lives, have extremely lower levels of recidivism compared to those who do not receive support, or if negative support is given (Colorado Department of Public Safety, 2004). If an offender begins to feel isolated, hopeless or fearful then this might prohibit reintegration and t...
Article
Full-text available
Forensic psychology is concerned with criminal behaviour, the treatment of offenders, and psychology applied in courts of law (Howitt, 2009). It is an important area in the field of psychology, as criminal activity and the recidivism of offenders is frequently brought to the public's attention (Ireland, 2009). Both the British Psychological Society...

Intimate partner violence (IPV) is experienced in many forms by victims, such as physical, psychological, emotional, financial, and coercive abuse (Jaffe & Schub, 2011). In particular, the lived experience of IPV victimisation has been the subject of many recent research projects (e.g. Morgan, Williamson, Hester, Jones & Feder, 2014). The aim of th...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Purpose: The main aim of this systematic review is to investigate the victimisation experiences of intimate partner violence (IPV), with a view to informing further research into this area. This will be done from an inclusive perspective, where no victim group will be excluded. To achieve this, the review will include research into male, female and...
Article
Full-text available
Intimate partner violence (IPV) has received increasing attention over recent years, both in the media and in research (Randle & Graham, 2011). IPV can be an attempt to have power and control over a partner in an intimate relationship (Bowen, 2009), and its effects are far reaching (Cho & Wilke, 2010). The majority of research has investigated male...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Psychopathy is generally defined as a personality disorder and is characterised by a range of affective and behavioural features. While psychopathy is a well-established construct there is an increase in research into two possible subtypes: primary psychopathy and secondary psychopathy. However, gender differences within psychopathy, its subtypes,...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Psychopathy is a personality disorder comprising both affective and behavioural aspects (e.g. impulsivity, callousness, manipulative, poor behavioural control). Due to this unique combination of characteristics, psychopathy is a risk factor for violent offending and recidivism. This would imply that an effective treatment program for psychopathic o...
