Faculty Service - David McLeod

Dr. McLeod represents OU at the NOFSW Conference in New York City

David McLeod serves as an executive board member for the National Organization of Forensic Social Work (NOFSW). Forensic social work is the application of social work practice at the intersection of issues involving crime, law, and the court systems. This pertains to working in areas that address issues such as domestic violence, victim advocacy, survivor services in clinical mental health, mediation, juvenile justice, offender treatment, child custody, child abuse and neglect, criminal competency to stand trial, corrections and many others. NOFSW hosts an annual conference which is currently being held in New York City at Fordham University. The conference has attendees from over 15 countries and all around the US. The organization, much like forensic social work itself, is growing at a rapid rate in an effort to address the complicated multidisciplinary responses to these types of phenomenon. 

In addition to his duties helping plan and facilitate the conference, Dr. McLeod also presented a paper "Out of Sight, Out of Mind: Addressing the Reality and Uniqueness of Female Sexual Offending in the US." More information on the paper can be found on his website
