About Today’s Guest: Louise Pieri
Bachelor of Criminology and Criminal Justice, accredited figure skating instructor.
" The most important things about me are I am a rebellious seeker of truth and social justice"
After completing a bachelor of Criminology as a mature age student, I worked for the Department of Child Safety Youth and Women in the Youth Justice Department. There I facilitated with my colleagues a rehabilitative program designed to re-engage young offenders back into school, vocational training or employment.
Disillusioned and frustrated with the government system I decided the only way to make meaningful change in the lives of young people is to address their complex trauma through the therapeutic process.
With this goal in mind, I left DOCS and enrolled in psychology. After a disruption to my studies followed by the pandemic, I started an accessories business – Axessorize – to explore my creative side.
Although I am not currently using my criminology skills professionally I still view the world through a criminological lens and continue to critically think and analyise our social world through criminological theories.
