As reported in The Age, Monash researchers including Dr Anna Eriksson, are recipients of a grant to examine the experience of those with acquired brain injury in the Victorian criminal justice system, particularly in Victorian prisons.
It has been recognised that there is a higher percentage of acquired brain injury amongst Victorian prisoners than the rate within the general community (42 per cent of men and 33 percent of women; compared to 2 percent in the general community), yet little is known about diagnosis and specialise support provided within and outside the prison system.
Criminology’s Anna Eriksson, together with Gaye Lansdell (Law) and Bernadette Saunders (Social Work) are leading this research. It will be conducted in 2014 as part of a suite of research projects seeking to ultimately identify how best to support those with acquired brain injury in the community and avoid contact with the criminal justice system.
