Overview

FORENSIC MENTAL HEALTH CARE is concerned with the care of people who exhibit extreme anti-social behaviors such as sexual abuse, violence, murder, fire setting, self-harming behaviors, and substance abuse. In many cases, these behaviors are indicative of severe psychiatric pathology. Nurses and others who work with such people require high degrees of skill and self-awareness. Such nurses are found in special hospitals, regional secure units, prisons, psychiatric hospitals and in community teams. This book addresses the most common anti-social behaviors encountered by professionals in a case-study approach. In doing so, the authors demonstrate theory and research-based elements which underpin education in true-to-life practice situations, an approach which particularly lends itself to psychiatry. The case studies consist of either real cases or an amalgam of real ones. The case study elements of each chapter comprise around 60-70 percent of the text, with discussion of implications and conclusions providing the rest.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Eric K. Woodard, MD (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This is an interesting multidisciplinary book in which a variety of topics important for mental health professionals working in forensic settings is covered. The contributors include nurses, psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and patients.
Purpose: The focus is on care planning and is illustrated with pertinent case studies. With current treatment modalities emphasizing a team approach, the eclectic authorship is timely.
Audience: Specifically targeted for forensic mental health professionals, this book is particularly useful for students, nurse practitioners, and therapists who work in forensic settings. The editors and contributors are credible and provide diverse viewpoints on common problems.
Features: Rather than arbitrary divisions by author or specialty, the book is divided into pertinent topics with authorities from various fields contributing. This enhances the eclectic feel and gives the reader a range of perspectives.
Assessment: This book is an edited compilation that would be useful and interesting for most mental health professionals working in forensic settings. It is easy to read and important, albeit brief, overviews of fundamental topics with compelling case studies comprise the focus. Because the editors and contributors are international, the reader is exposed to different theoretical approaches to problems that are common in forensic patients. Overall, this is a useful text with an emphasis on the distinctive ways that a forensic patient is seen, assessed, and treated by a variety of practitioners.
