  • Description
  • Details

Evidence-based and entirely comprehensive in its approach, practitioners will find Personality Disorder and Serious Offending both a practical and insightful adjunct that will assist them in their work.

People with personality disorder who offend tend to be neglected by health services in most countries. In the UK, there has been renewed interest in the field since government initiatives in the end of the 1990s. Government proposals themselves are controversial, but there is growing recognition that it is unsafe, both for the general public and for the primary sufferer alike, if the neglect continues.

Years of experience have combined to provide a highly practical reference work covering:
* Models of understanding of personality development and disorder
* Methods of assessment and treatment and how they can be applied and modified
* Special issues -- drug misuse, long-stay induced secondary disorders, issues pertinent to women only, 'intractable' patients;
* A path for care -- from initial assessment to the logistics of discharge
* Management issues -- choosing staff, supervision and support of staff
