A Practical Guide to Forensic Psychotherapy
Forensic Psychiatry has expanded exponentially in the last twenty years with a dramatic increase in forensic psychiatry posts and medium secure unit beds. More recently there has been increased concern with the treatment and management of mentally ill offenders which has led to more interest in understanding. Treatment is seen by many people to be of great importance, hence the formation of the International Association for Forensic Psychotherapy, and the founding of the first diploma in forensic psychotherapy at the Portman Clinic, London. This practical text book is written for all professionals involved with people who break the law.
