Creating Safe and Inclusive Schools for LGBTQ Students

Thursday, February 05, 2015 | 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM | Location: Zable Hall | Alliant San Diego

The need for safer schools

Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer students are a unique minority within schools that are often targets of bullying and isolation. Yet, this reality presents a unique opportunity for schools to respond with care and compassion. Joe Jamieson and Nadine Carpenter are coming to Alliant to discuss how schools in the Canadian Province of Ontario did just that.

 

Ontario takes the lead and gets results

Starting in 2004, schools in Ontario developed initiatives to become safer, more inclusive places for LGBTQ students. The schools’ efforts were heightened following the passage of Ontario’s Accepting Schools Act in 2012, which requires that all Ontario school boards take preventative measures against bullying.

 

Joe Jamieson and Nadine Carpenter of OCT will present on the impact of these initiatives, including regulatory case law that provides jurisprudence for regulators in protecting the public interest regarding LGBTQ issues in schools. Additionally, there will be a viewing of videos produced by OCT featuring students, parents and educators sharing their experiences in Ontario schools.

 

This free event is open to all students, alumni, faculty, staff and the greater campus community. Refreshments will be provided.

 

Event sponsors: IMERIT, HSOE Teacher Education program, California School of Forensic Studies and San Diego Law School.

Street Psychology for Police and Patterns of Child Homicide in the UK

Wednesday, February 25, 2015 | 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM | Location: Auditorium | Alliant Fresno Campus, 5130 E. Clinton Way

Director of the Crime and Policing Research Group at the University of Huddersfield in the UK, Dr. Jason Roach, will be at Alliant Fresno to present research on street psychology for police and patterns of child homicide in the UK.


This free event is open to all students, alumni, faculty, staff, and the campus community.


Street psychology for police

Traditionally, psychological research relating to lies and deception is applied to formal interviewing of suspects and witnesses. Unfortunately, this is of little help to officers engaging in less formal street interactions with the general public. Dr. Roach offers a series of practical, psychologically supported techniques for use in more routine policing situations, such as detecting those giving false personal details and identifying active or serious offenders from their commission of specific minor offences. This approach, known as 'self-selection policing,' represents research conducted over the past decade.


Patterns of child homicide in the UK

In the UK, one child a week will become a victim of homicide. Prior research has identified consistent patterns regarding the circumstances of killing, the methods used, and the relationship of child victim to killer. However, whether the age of the child can be used to predict risk of homicide or produce a profile of the most likely killer has not. Findings from a recent study examining whether different ages of child victims produce different profiles of child killers will be presented. Findings that are vital to those charged with calculating the risk of child homicide, protecting and safeguarding children, and investigating child homicide.
