It gives me and David great pleasure to introduce a new member of the blogging team, Kasia Uzieblo.
Kasia Uzieblo is a senior researcher at the Forensic Care Specialists (Van der Hoeven Clinic, the Netherlands) and visiting professor at Ghent University and Vrije Universiteit Brussel (Belgium). In the past, she has developed a research program on forensic psychology (University College Thomas More, Belgium), a nationally renowned educational program for forensic practitioners, and a professional network for Flemish forensic psychologists. Her research focuses on the underlying mechanisms (e.g., psychopathy, relational dynamics) of violent behavior, including sexual violence, forensic psychological assessment (e.g., risk assessment), the impact of (sexual) violence and help-seeking behavior in both victims and perpetrators. She has published more than 60 manuscripts/book chapters/essays and has organized numerous conferences/training/symposia on the aforementioned topics. Kasia Uzieblo also serves as a board member of multiple scientific and professional committees and societies, including ATSA. She is the past-past president of the Dutch chapter of ATSA (NL-ATSA) and is a member of the international ATSA committee. She is currently following training to become an official Static-Stable-Acute trainer. In addition, she conducts forensic psychological assessments for the court and in the forensic psychiatric clinic, the Van der Hoeven clinic.
I hope you will join us in welcoming Kasia. We will have a blog, as normal, later in the week.
Kieran & David.
