SEAdjusted2Sophie Ellis

Research Assistant

Forensic Psychologist in Training

Sophie has nine years' experience working Psychology roles within the Prison Service. She has worked primarily in assessment and cognitive-behavioural interventions for adult male offenders convicted of violence. Her main interests are in desistance, violence, acquisitive offending, offender rehabilitation and the pains of imprisonment. Her approach tends to be focused on strengths and a “Good Lives” approach.

Currently she is particularly interested in the role of forensic psychology in the IPP sentence, understanding engagement/non-engagement in offending behaviour programmes, the role of the arts in rehabilitation, psychological risk assessment for acquisitive offenders, and the use of a desistance based approach to reduce violence in prisons.
