Webinar: Criminal Recidivism: A Neurocriminological Perspective
June 26, 2023 at 3:00 pm Eastern | 2:00 pm Central | 1:00 pm Mountain | 12:00 pm Pacific (1 hour)
Webinar Faculty: Jerrod Brown, Ph.D., M.A., M.S., M.S., M.S.
About the Webinar:
Criminal recidivism (e.g., reoffending, rearrest, and/or reconviction) is a complex and multifaceted topic that is likely influenced by several prenatal and postnatal neurological, biological, social, family, and psychological factors. This training will examine the neurobiopsychosocial factors associated with criminal recidivism through a neurocriminological lens. Neurocriminology is an interdisciplinary subfield of criminology that incorporates methodological approaches from neuroscience, physiology, genetics, biology, and psychology. The goal of neurocriminology is to better understand, predict, prevent, and treat antisocial, criminal, and violent behaviors. Implications for intake, screening, and intervention will also be discussed during this training.
Related topics discussed during the course of this training will include coaching and prevention approaches, blood sugar dysregulation, microbiota-gut-brain axis dysfunction, executive dysfunction and frontal lobe impairment, adaptive functioning limitations, attachment dysregulation, child welfare involvement, poverty, homelessness, and neighborhood disadvantage, immature moral judgements, cognitive distortions, low empathy and theory of mind deficits, confabulation,suggestibility, and gullibility, alexithymia, metacognition problems, head trauma, nutritional deficiencies, lower collective efficacy, attention, learning, and memory challenges, sleep disturbances, poor health decision-making, choice-making deficits, severe mental illness,
neurodevelopmental disorders, hormonal dysfunction, facial emotion recognition abnormalities, central nervous system and hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis dysfunction, self-control and impulse control problems, adverse childhood experiences and complex and developmental trauma, immune system dysfunction, chronic-low grade inflammation, psychopathy and callous-unemotional traits, hostile attribution bias, psychoneuroimmunology, neurocounseling and more. Empirically based research findings and case studies will be discussed throughout this training.

NAPD doesn't apply for CLE or track attendance to provide certifications for our live webinars, conferences and online courses. This helps us keep the price as low as possible and avoids the disruption of the flow of the training required by many states to verify attendance.
