Critical Evaluation of Danger/Risk and Vulnerability/Victimhood in Disability, Mental Health and Cri

Drawing on relevant theory, research evidence and policy and legal frameworks, critically evaluate the concepts of danger/risk and vulnerability/victimhood in relation to disability, mental health and the criminal justice system.

During a specified period (see above), each student will be required to post a minimum of three online (blog) entries. Each online entry must be 1000 words (+/-10%) totalling a contribution of 3000 words (+/-10%).  Students will be given a broad question (see above) that relates to the module with which to begin the online discussion.  It is possible that discussion may move away from this topic as new themes are introduced during the online debate.  Students must use academic and policy material in their online entries, but may also upload appropriate web links and video or audio clips.

  • Students are expected to demonstrate critical engagement with the topic under discussion by drawing on theoretical material, secondary research, policy documents, legislative frameworks and topical debate.
  • Students are expected to engage with and evaluate the issues raised by other students’ postings in order to take part in the discussion and develop a high quality peer-led debate.
  • The lecturers will read the postings during the period of the assessment, but will not normally intervene in the discussion.
  • The online debate will commence and close as stated in submission date section.
  • Postings made outside this time frame may be disregarded for the purposes of the assessment.
