Insult to Injury

Insult to Injury is a groupwork programme for men with an acknowledged and persistent history of violent offending.


The programme invites participants to:

  • explore the process of violence and how it operates for them
  • identify high-risk situations, thoughts and feelings
  • practice skills to avoid future violent offending.

The Centre for Forensic and Criminal Psychology and University of Birmingham conducted an evaluation of the use of an active drama-based approach combined with cognitive behavioural techniques to explore issues such as masculinity, power and control. The full evaluation can be accessed here
