Next Forum – May 28th: The case of MS S – A Terrorist or a Little Princess?

Increasing numbers of women are being convicted and imprisoned under terrorism legislation in the UK. However, such cases represent a tiny fraction of women’s offending as a whole and are unusual in forensic psychotherapy services.  It is perhaps too soon to consider typologies or identify common risk factors in this group yet all these women receive a high degree of attention and surveillance from criminal justice and other state agencies such as the Home Office and immigration services.   This is an account of  psychotherapy with a young woman whose unique vulnerabilities led her to break the law and receive a prison sentence.  She faces a very uncertain future as a convicted terrorist, a label which she rejects but which she knows she cannot escape.

This session will be given by Rebecca Mitchell, psychodynamic psychotherapist at HMP & YOI Holloway.
