The Campbell Collaboration is a global evidence for practice organisation, primarily producing systematic reviews of robust and rigorous evidence for policy and practice in the fields of Education, Social Welfare and Crime and Justice.
Esther Coren and Jacqueline Tallent are both members of Campbell – both as authors in the Crime and Justice Group and Esther as a long-standing editor (enhanced peer reviewer) and author in the Social Welfare Group.
Increasingly, arts interventions are offered to participants in secure criminal justice settings aiming to improve aspects of wellbeing and reduced recidivism. As there are few evaluations of this work, Jacqueline and Esther are working on an Evidence and Gap Map (EGM) so as to capture and describe the available evidence and provide a road map for further research in this field. This will be published in the globally prestigious Campbell Library.
