Jaimee Mallion has a number of published papers on street gang membership and evidence-based practice in Forensic and NHS services. Her current research focuses on the application of the Good Lives Model, a novel approach to offender rehabilitation, to street gang members. This model suggests all individuals have life priorities, and when these cannot be achieved pro-socially, they instead pursue these through offending behaviours. This model has not been applied to street gang membership previously.
