Bram de Heide has been working as a PhD candidate at the Institute of Criminal Law and Criminology since October 1st 2023. He completed both a Bachelor’s degree in Criminology and a Master’s degree in Forensic Criminology at Leiden University. During this Master’s degree, Bram has written a thesis on the varying predictive validity of a risk-assessment tool for reoffending within subgroups of a sample of juvenile delinquents. After graduating, he has worked as a researcher for a total of four years, of which two years at the Academische Werkplaats Risicojeugd (AWRJ) and two years at the lectoraat Jeugd of the Hogeschool Utrecht. At the AWRJ Bram has researched an alternative form of (small-scale) youth detention, trans-forensic care, and (the reduction) of the use of seclusion in residential youth care. At the lectoraat Jeugd of the Hogeschool Utrecht he has researched primary school teachers’ inclination to report (signals of) child abuse and the possibilities to increase the knowledge and skills on (the signaling and reporting of) child abuse within the curricula of several applied science majors.
Bram is working on the research project ‘Food in Detention’, a project commissioned by Dutch Custodial Institutions Agency (Dutch: Dienst Justitiële Inrichtingen) of the Ministry of Justice and Security. This research project will monitor prisoners’ experience and satisfaction with the food in prison, during a transition of the food supply chain.
