Key Note Speakers

 

Dr Gerard Drennan

‘Psychotherapeutic Change & Restorative Justice in Dialogue’

 

 

The RJC is pleased to announce that Dr Gerard Drennan will be a keynote speaker at our 1st annual conference on Monday 18th November 2019. Dr Drennan is a Consultant Clinical Psychologist and Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist in training, who holds the post of Head of Psychology & Psychotherapy in the Behavioural & Developmental Psychiatric Operational Directorate of the South London & Maudsley Mental Health Foundation Trust (SLAM). He is also an Honorary Lecturer at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience at Kings College London. Dr Drennan qualified as a clinical psychologist in Cape Town and his doctoral research examined the practical and political role of language and interpreters in mental health practice in post-colonial, institutional settings. This research ran concurrently with the work of South African Truth and Reconciliation and was touched, as all South Africans were, by the restorative aspirations of that nation-building endeavour. Gerard has held clinical and leadership roles in forensic and offender mental health settings in London and Sussex for the past 20 years. He has published on the implementation of recovery-oriented practice and, since training in restorative justice conferencing in 2012, has worked and written on the place of restorative justice practices in mental health settings. His keynote paper entitled ‘Psychotherapeutic Change & Restorative Justice in Dialogue’ will explore restorative dialogue in stimulating change in patients in mental health settings, an emergent area of practice within the restorative justice field.

She has been a practitioner, trainer and researcher in restorative practices since 1996 when she was introduced to the ideas as a serving police officer in Thames Valley Police. Nicola has two Master’s degrees and is currently studying towards a PhD, all of which involve research into restorative practices. She is a qualified primary school teacher and SEN Co-ordinator, a member of the British Psychological Society and a member of the European Forum for Restorative Justice Newsletter Editorial Team. Nicola’s keynote paper entitled ‘Restorative Approaches in a Higher Education Context: Relationships Matter’ will consider how restorative practices can develop a relational pedagogy in Higher Education, an emergent area of practice within the restorative justice field.
