Forensic mental health assessment (FMHA) continues to develop and expand as a specialization. Since the publication of the First Edition of Forensic Mental Health Assessment: A Casebook over a decade ago, there have been a number of significant changes in the applicable law, ethics, science, and practice that have shaped the conceptual and empirical underpinnings of FMHA. The Second Edition of Forensic Mental Health Assessment is thoroughly updated in light of the developments and changes in the field, while still keeping the unique structure of presenting cases, detailed reports, and specific teaching points on a wide range of topics. Unlike anything else in the literature, it provides genuine (although disguised) case material, so trainees as well as legal and mental health professionals can review how high-quality forensic evaluation reports are written; it features contributions from leading experts in forensic psychology and psychiatry, providing samples of work in their particular areas of ...
Citizens of developed societies are troubled by those who commit irrational crimes against the person. Reoffending by ex-patients following their release from secure mental health services triggers particularly intense angst when amplified by media and political scrutiny. Forensic mental health service providers are expected to minimise the occurrence of such transgressions by releasing only those patients who are judged acceptably unlikely to reoffend. However, reoffending probabilities can only be estimated by observing behaviour in secure institutional settings designed specifically to prevent patients from transgressing. The article explores this inductive prevention paradox which arises when the implementation of measures designed to avoid an adverse event obscures direct observation of what might have happened if prophylaxis had not been attempted. The analysis presented draws on data obtained in 1999-2003 from two qualitative studies in medium to low secure UK institutions, one ...
Serious incidents within forensic mental health services can be linked to breakdowns of relational security.1 Available measures should therefore provide insight into the quality of relational security within services, direct exploration of strengths and weaknesses, and prompt timely, appropriate interventions before an incident occurs. Furthermore, tools should be accessible to all occupation groups.6 This study therefore evaluated the psychometric properties of the STA and the RSE, including internal consistency, convergent validity and their ability to highlight differences between groups.. Study limitations include a relatively small sample size, and participants being drawn from a single service, which limit generalisability. It is categorised as a preliminary study for these reasons. However, the study reports interesting findings in relation to the specific tools examined and the wider task of measuring relational security by investigating the perspectives of staff members across ...

Ladies and Gentlemen,. With great pleasure I invite you to II, this time International Congress of Forensic Psychiatry.. Last years interest in the Congress subject, which is a combination of scientific disciplines dealing with forensic psychiatry, has motivated us to extend the formula of meeting with foreign guests, with whom we will be able to share our experiences and continue to follow the message to learn from each other. Therefore, the Second Congress of Forensic Psychiatry is co-organized with one of the sections of the European Psychiatric Association.. Just like in the previous year I assure you that Forensic Psychiatry Congress is absolutely unique meeting. The second time we take the challenge to enable direct exchange of views and state of the art between representatives of judges, lawyers, prosecutors, solicitors, psychiatrists, psychologists and clerics - all of whose knowledge is necessary to meet the challenges of ruling and giving opinions on matters concerning mental health ...
Specialist forensic mental health (fmh) services are for people with serious mental disorders and grave offending behaviour who tend to be rejected from mainstream services. Although often triggered by single high profile cases, these specialist services are among the best planned and commissioned services in psychiatry, founded in evidence of need, risk and efficacy of interventions. They are grounded in a multidisciplinary clinical perspective and often have integrated academic units. They interface both with other clinical services and with the criminal justice service. Good relationships with the local community are vital for establishment and growth. Secure psychiatric hospitals have two overarching aims: improving health and delivering safety for patients and others. In secure hospitals, patients autonomy is limited in a number of important ways: they may not be allowed to leave the hospital at all, may be confined to a particular area within the hospital, and/or treatment may be enforced.
Welcome to the Quality Network for Forensic Mental Health. The Quality Network runs both a medium secure and a low secure network using a multi-disciplinary approach to quality improvement.
Forensic psychiatry in Europe is a specialty primarily concerned with individuals who have either offended or present a risk of doing so, and who also suffer from a psychiatric condition. These mentally disordered offenders (MDOs) are often cared for in secure psychiatric environments or prisons. In this guidance paper we first present on overview of the field of forensic psychiatry from a European perspective. We then present a review of the literature summarising the evidence on the assessment and treatment of MDOs under the following headings: The role of the forensic psychiatrist as an expert witness, risk assessment, treatment settings for MDOs, and effectiveness of psychological and pharmacological interventions. We undertook a rapid review of the literature with search terms related to: forensic psychiatry, review articles, randomised controlled trials and best practice. We searched the Medline, Embase, PsycINFO, and Cochrane library databases from 2000 onwards for adult groups only. We ...

Introduction: Poor employee wellbeing has been linked to higher levels of staff sickness and poorer quality of care in mental health and intellectual disability services. Despite the implications, research into factors associated with poor wellbeing in these populations is limited, with research into the wellbeing of forensic mental health professionals being particularly scarce. Forensic mental health professionals face unique demands in their roles, including increased exposure to violence and aggression, which have been linked to reduced wellbeing. Several resources including tolerant attitudes towards aggression and psychological flexibility have been associated with improved wellbeing in this population. Little is known about the interactive effects of job demands and resources on the wellbeing of forensic mental health professionals, and research into this is required to increase our understanding of potential mechanisms for change. To address these issues, a systematic review was ...

article{939854ea-37aa-4c05-8584-034703ac9bed, abstract = {The assumption that mental disorder is a cause of crime is the foundation of forensic psychiatry, but conceptual. epistemological. and empirical analyses show that neither mental nor crime, or the causation implied, are clear-cut concepts. Mental denotes heterogeneous aspects of a per-son such as inner experiences. cognitive abilities, and behaviour patterns described in a non-physical vocabulary. In psychology and psychiatry, mental describes law-bound, caused aspects of human functioning that are predictable and generalizable. Problems defined as mental disorders are end-points of dimensional inter-individual differences rather than natural categories. Deficits in cognitive faculties, such as attention, verbal understanding, impulse control, and reality assessment, may be susceptibility factors that relate to behaviours (Such as crimes) by increasing the probability (risk) for a negative behaviour or constitute causes in the sense of ...

Topics included in these fields include a range as diverse as capital sentencing guidelines, informed consent, and standards of care for mental health treatment.
Information on Forensic Psychiatry, the work of Forensic Psychiatrists and the difference between a Forensic Psychiatrist and a Forensic Psychologist.
Forensic psychiatry in criminal cases often attracts considerable dispute and disagreement in criminal trials. Such cases often throw up the seemingly different objectives of science and the law; as well as the difficulties faced by the Court in choosing between competing and conflicting opinions of psychiatrists. Furthermore, the adversarial nature of the proceedings, while serving the needs of justice, can colour the presentation and reception of the evidence. Although similar issues arise in other areas of expertise, such as physical forensics, or DNA analysis, it is in forensic psychiatry that we find the greatest controversy, simply because forensic psychiatry is the most immediately connected with guilt or innocence: forensic psychiatry examines and scrutinises the mental state of the accused person. Whose expert opinion is eventually accepted would often strongly point to the eventual judgment of the Court. This paper will aim to explore these tensions and difficulties, surveying both ...

Stone to Appelbaum to Griffith: a profound challenge to forensic psychiatry and two American Academy of Psychiatry and the Law (AAPL) presidential replies. This is how the discussion of one of the most difficult themes in ethics for forensic psychiatry has gone. The pattern is reminiscent of the famous line from Franklin Pierce Adams Baseballs Sad Lexicon: Tinkers to Evers to Chance. But, like Tinkers to Evers to Chance, are these words that are heavy with nothing but trouble?1 The discussion since Dr. Alan Stones original assault from the tower at the 1982 Annual Meeting of the AAPL2,3 has most certainly been heavy. And indeed it has been troubling. By 1984, Dr. Jonas Rappeport had organized a response in the Bulletin of the American Academy of Psychiatry and the Law from 10 forensic practitioners/scholars to help overcome the collective chagrin at the challenge from Stone and to help clear some of the smoke and defensiveness (Ref. 2, pp 205, 207). Stones challenge was profound: ...
Fellows participate in supervised clinical experiences in three principal off-site facilities which provide for a diverse experience and exposure to criminal, civil and child/adolescent cases.

Evaluation, research, writing and teaching skills are emphasized throughout the fellowship. Fellows participate in a year-long seminar series which provides a comprehensive overview of adult and child forensic topics, as well as landmark cases in psychiatry and the law. The fellow is invited to attend special courses offered to staff and trainees in the LPS and the Department of Psychiatry, including courses on forensic psychological testing and the evaluation of sexual abuse. ...
Views on evil are inextricably linked to religious thought, and an observation hardly worth contesting is that There is no position on which people are so immovable as their religious beliefs (Ref. 73, p 2). This fact raises a legitimate question about pursuing scientific answers under the shadow of an immovable religious concept. It is an approach that is doomed from its beginning. In a survey of U.S. citizens, it was found that religiosity is negatively correlated with interest in science.74 The two fields of thought tend to be polarized, and under the best of circumstances they share an uncomfortable mutual acknowledgment.. But as regards their collaborative investigation of phenomena, they are in an insoluble conflict. It is a conflict that has long been known to the medical profession. It is a conflict that organized medicine thought important enough to warn its trainees about more than a century ago: … one and all of you will have to face the ordeal of every student in this generation ...

After developing a chronic physical illness, I soon began realizing that the disease plagued my mind almost more than it did my body. While my illness is not life-threatening, it was very difficult accepting that I would have to take medication for the rest of my life and eat a strict diet. After a year of depression, I finally overcame my fear of exposing my feelings to others and made an appointment with a mental health counselor. With her help, I was able to see the silver linings in life that I had greatly taken for granted before I became ill. I now encourage anyone who is battling an illness of any type to seek the psychological help they need. I plan to post lots of little mental health tips and tricks on my new blog along with advice for choosing a good counselor. Please come back soon!

Objectives: The benefits of religion/spirituality for people living with experiences of mental disorder or incarceration are well-researched in North America. Limited attention has been paid to equivalent populations in the UK and even less so to forensic mental health service users. This paper aims to explore the lived experience of high secure hospital service users who have identified religion/spirituality as holding personal importance. In particular, the paper aims to explore the role of religion/spirituality in the process of recovery from mental disorder and offending behaviour. Design: A semi-structured interview design was adopted. Methods: Men from a high secure hospital with a self-identified religious/spiritual identity were interviewed individually. A maximum variation sampling procedure was used in order to include men across services and levels of care within the hospital. Data were subjected to Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis due to its focus on the subjective lived ...

The field of applied sport psychology has recognized the growing consensus that professional autonomy and discretion brings with it the need to train, regulate, and evaluate practice (Evetts, 2001). However, research into how practitioners professional judgment is formed and the decision-making processes involved has not received concurrent attention. This paper illustrates some of the possible outcomes and implications for applied sport psychologists from consideration of Professional Judgment and Decision Making (PJDM) research in other fields such as medicine and teaching and in parallel disciplines such as clinical and counseling psychology. Investigation into the nature of decision content and how the crucial intention for impact (Hill, 1992) is formulated carries implications for the assessment, reflective practice, and professional development and training of applied sport psychologists. Future directions in PJDM research are suggested and a call is made for practitioners to be open to ...

Introduction: Butyrophenone drugs including haloperidol are being widely used in the field of psychiatry. The acute butyrophenone poisoning incidents sometimes take place; in such cases, the analysis of a butyrophenone becomes necessary in forensic toxicology or clinical toxicology. Their analysis is being made by GC [1-4], GC/MS [5-6], HPLC [7-15] and LC/MS [16,17]. Six butyrophenones are now available as ethical drugs in Japan ( Fig. 2.1); the most typical ones are haloperidol and bromperidol, which most frequently cause poisoning incidents among butyrophenones. ...

Forensic mental health assessment (FMHA) has grown into a specialization informed by research and professional guidelines. This series presents up-to-date information on the most important and frequently conducted forms of FMHA. Each title contains a thorough discussion of the relevant legal and psychological concepts, followed by a step-by-step description of the assessment process from preparing for the evaluation to writing the report and testifying in court. This guide addresses the assessment of juvenile defendants, if they possess a minimal understanding of the nature and implications of pending criminal proceedings, as well as if the juvenile is capable of acquiring a sufficient basic legal knowledge to understand and participate in his case with the assistance of counsel. In making recommendations for best practice, authors consider empirical support, legal relevance, and consistency with ethical and professional standards.

Maslovs hierarchy of needs comes to mind. I regard insanity as an instinctual survival mechanism. Insanity seems to be the outward expression of an overburdened body incapable of homeostasis. The survival mechanism seems to have a first order priority of repairing the body. When this fails, the last line of defense is fight or flight 24/7. Insanity. This explains the link between genius and insanity. Where most people would rather take it easy, the genius must continue on. He is driven internally by his instinctual desire to survive. What great minds fear most is not death, but oblivion. Producing great works, may set one into the history books, or museums of art to be known for eons and escaping this oblivion. It also explains how many genius die early. Their body and mind are unsound, and breaks down at a much faster rate than the norm ...
The UC forensic psychiatry division functions as a clearinghouse for private civil and criminal forensic psychiatric evaluations conducted by psychiatry department faculty. Fellows join faculty in these activities, participate as observers, report writers, or primary evaluators. Types of assessments include allegations of psychiatric malpractice, independent medical examinations, insanity assessments, possible false confessions, fitness for duty, psychological autopsies, threat assessment, domestic relations matters, professional licensure, and death penalty mitigation-to give just a few examples.. Faculty members expect fellows to participate in as many private practice evaluations cases as their time allows. Often conducted by the divisions forensic psychology expert, Scott Bresler, Ph.D., these experiences allow fellows to become familiar with techniques and theories of psychological assessment that go well beyond the training of most forensic psychiatrists.. ...

Abstract. Risk assessment for future violence is an important part of todays forensic psychiatry, and including dynamic risk factors in risk assessment is important because it has been shown that risk can change over time. However, previous research has suggested that perpetrators of homicide are different than perpetrators of other violent crimes. The aim of this study was to describe and analyze risk assessments of future violence for forensic psychiatric patients convicted for homicide (n = 45) and forensic psychiatric patients convicted for assault (n = 91). To do this, differences within the groups and between the groups were analyzed. The sample consisted of 114 men and 24 women between 16-71 years who have all been admitted to a forensic psychiatric hospital and assessed with the risk assessment instrument HCR-20 at least two times. It was unexpectedly shown that the patients convicted for homicide more often had a diagnosis of personality disorder, while the patients convicted of ...

A judgement may be defined as an assertion made with evidence or good reason in a context of uncertainty. In psychiatry the uncertainty is inherent in the professional context and the evidence derives from academic literature and scientific studies as they are applied to a specific patient. The nature of the uncertainty and the factors that should inform professional judgement are explored in this article. Professional judgement currently faces two serious challenges: an obsession with numbers, which comes from within medicine, and the patient choice agenda, which is politically inspired and comes from outside medicine. In this article we strive to defend professional judgement in the clinic against both challenges. ...

By Stephen M. Raffle, M.D.. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is addressed in greater detail on this website at PTSD (Practice Areas). A bit more briefly, PTSD is a psychiatric condition understood to be an anxiety disorder arising as a result of an emotionally overwhelming experience usually accompanied by a symptom complex which, for example, might include nightmares that recapitulate the traumatic event, and recurrent intrusive thoughts about the event. In a forensic psychiatry practice, PTSD is a common diagnosis. PTSD is often erroneously diagnosed by a treating doctor merely because an individual has been exposed to a situation that might cause PTSD. Whereas one individual may experience a debilitating PTSD which lingers for many years, another person exposed to the same trauma may not. The event does not define the PTSD. Further, when there is no PTSD, there may be the presence of another emotional response to a traumatic event. Any psychiatric condition must be accurately diagnosed ...

This is the thirteenth part of my short story, The Poet. Please would you take a look at it and correct my mistakes. After four weeks, they took me to a large room where seven people sat at the table. Some of them I had met before during my examination and some I saw for the first time. A man in his sixties, sitting in the middle, told me to sit down. He presented himself as Mr Tuck, the docent in forensic psychiatry. He browsed through some documents in front of him and said, Mr Novak,

There are challenges in setting up and maintaining such services, however. We cannot be sure that they will be cost-effective in the longer term, as the full costs of the service were not examined here only salary costs. This type of analysis would need to be evaluated in a larger study of effectiveness taking account of the commissioning cycle and utilising an economic evaluation. This pilot was only conducted in one metropolitan district in England. Population demographics, health service configurations and commissioning arrangements vary across the UK, and our findings and experience may not be generalisable. Moreover, GP practices taking part were selected for their willingness to engage with the pilot, with one out of the three being unable to launch the proposed service within the project time frame.. Findings from the evaluation are not definitive, but rather provide important data to inform the next stages of service development and evaluation. This pilot demonstrates that service ...

Alienists (psychiatrists) wanted to provide good care for the insane in their midst, and in the early years offered assistance primarily through therapeutic stays at insane asylums. These doctors favored regimens of rest, occupational therapy, and structured time probably served many patients well, but such programs could not help everyone. Alienists were still exploring the causes and treatments of insanity, and some of their thoughts missed the mark widely.. In an 1871 paper on mental disease (reported in the Transactions of the Medical Society of the State of North Carolina), the author described a case of violent cerebral excitement in a 5-year-old, which had been relieved by an oral dose of bromide of potassium. This case of mental disease seems to be clearly a case of epilepsy, and we can only wonder if the child was tagged for life as insane.. Another paper in the same publication discussed Mania Transitoria, or insanity of very short duration. During this type of mania, people ...
