Welcome the new Editor of Journal of Intellectual Disabilities and Offending Behaviour

Journal of Intellectual Disabilities and Offending Behaviour

The Journal of Intellectual Disabilities and Offending Behaviour is delighted to welcome a new Editor-in-Chief: Professor Eddie Chaplin from London South Bank University, UK. Professor Chaplin has extensive experience in the field of neurodevelopmental conditions within the criminal justice system and will work to ensure that the journal continues to publish high-quality, innovative research in this area.

Eddie Chaplin is Professor of Mental Health in Neurodevelopmental Conditions at the Institute of Health and Social Care, London South Bank University and Head of the Scientific Committee for the European Association of Mental Health in Intellectual Disability. His main research interests include identification and understanding neurodevelopmental conditions in the Criminal Justice System, focussed on how these groups have high rates of need that often go unrecognised, leaving them unable to access treatment or diversion to more suitable services. His other interest is co-produced research with this group, especially focussing on self-help and peer mentoring strategies to improve mental health.

The new Editor welcomes submissions to the journal, particularly in (but not limited to) the following areas:

  • the nature of intellectual, learning and developmental disabilities and neurodevelopmental disorders and offending behaviour – recent research, epidemiological issues, the nature and type of offending and cross-cultural comparisons 
  • treatment approaches – what works? 
  • diagnostic issues 
  • risk assessment and management 
  • needs and views of service users and carers.
