  • Assessment and treatment of risk for harm to self or others in inmates.
           The experience at the Monza prison
    • Abstract: Manuela Valsecchi, Marco Bani, Francesca Barile, Emanuele Truisi, Michele Monticelli, Gabriele Travagin, Federico Zorzi, Giorgio Rezzonico, Umberto Mazza
      Main risk factors of self or to others injurious behaviors in prison settings, as describing by researches, could be divided in situational factors, related to the prison environment and importation factors, related to the socio-demographic status and clinical characteristics prior the imprisonment. Related to the specificity of prison setting, considering self or others injurious behaviors in prison settings as the outcome of composite combinations of multiple risk factors is more appropriate for orienting the clinical interventions. Considering guidelines a specific protocol actuated at the Monza Prison to assess and prevent risk for harm in prisoners. It has been applied since September 2012 and within 72 hours from the entrance in prison every prisoner has a clinical session with a psychologist where some screening tools are administered: i) Jail Screening Assessment Tool (JSAT), used to explore juridical situation, history of aggressive acts, psychosocial evaluation, drug assumption, presence of psychiatric disorder, suicide or self- -harm risk, presence of anxious and depressive symptomatology; ii)Barrat Impulsiviness Scale-11 (BIS-11), a rating scale to evaluate the impulsiveness; iii)Clinical Outcome in Routine Evaluation-Outcome Measure (CORE-OM), a rating scale to evaluate the distress’ level. It could be used also to evaluate outcome of treatment. When the psychologist detect the risk by J-SAT and/or by BIS-11’s score above cut-off, it’s possible a psychiatric advice and the prisoner is included in a monitoring and treatment plan which is dependent on the development of the clinical conditions. In these prisoners, Millon Clinical Multiaxial Inventory-III (MCM-III) is also administered within 2 weeks from first clinical session, to investigate the structure and the functioning of personality.This protocol allows to investigate both situational and importation risk factors and how they interacting with each other and the psychologist could use these information for orienting the clinical interventions.

  • Suicide risk assessment in foreign prisoners through a projective test. A
           research on the prisoners in Vigevano
    • Abstract: Stefania Turati, Antonia Sorge, Emanuela Saita
      Being arrested constitutes a break in the stream of existence. Among foreigners, incarceration is a potential traumatic event often characterized by language difficulties that make the diagnosis complicated and misleading. However, an early and correct diagnosis process is at the core of prevention and reduction of suicides and self-harming acts. The clinical interview and specific rating scales are inefficient to achieve the diagnosis in foreign subjects because of poor education levels, linguistic barriers and cultural differences. The aim of this research is to show the efficacy of the Lüscher Color Test to evaluate the risk factors for suicide. The analysis, supported by the software SPSS, revealed how the use of the Color test could predict the risk for suicide in inmates.

  • Personality styles and the definition of care paths for inmate patients
           throughout Millon’s Inventory
    • Abstract: Emanuele Truisia, Marco Bani, Francesca Barile, Manuela Valsecchi, Federica Corbetta, Giorgio Rezzonico, Umberto Mazza
      With the reorganization of Penitentiary Medicine (DLgs 230/99) and the transfer to National Health Service as regards the healthcare of inmates (DPCM 01.04.08), Italian regions have to manage diagnostic processes and therapies of prisoners. Main aim of the Organization for adult inmates is to prevent self and other injurious behaviours. In these frame, within inmates entering in prison, an intervention protocol has been carried out at the Penitentiary of Monza, since September 2012. Millon Clinical Multiaxial Inventory-III (MCMI-III) is assessed in order to investigate the personality structure and functioning. Personality assessment in penitentiary context is important to know the patient’s personality style and coping behavior, useful to cope with the new condition of living. As indicated by the literature, the scores obtained to Millon Clinical Multiaxial Inventory- III subscales can guiding treatment decisions: after analyzing the personality profile report, the clinician makes a diagnosis and, having verified the validity indexes, he determines the three highest scores among the personality patterns, the severe personality disorders, and the Axis I clinical syndromes (both severe and moderate). Hence feedbacks about vulnerabilities to be treated given to the patient determine the care path to be followed, defining the intervention goals with the patient.

  • Dysfunctional personality traits in drug addict inmates. Administration of
           the PID-5 to a clinical sample
    • Abstract: Antonia Sorge, Sarah Coco, Monica Accordini, Valentina Fenaroli
      Including a dimensional rather than categorical classification of disorders, section III of the DSM-5 presents a new model for the assessment of personality disorders. Consistently with such model, the APA has generated a paradigm for the assessment of dysfunctional personality traits, the Personality Inventory for DSM-5 (PID-5) consisting of 25 personality facets identified in 5 domains (Krueger et al., 2012). The present research findings have been obtained by administering the PID-5 to a sample of 101 patients under the care of an addiction recovery service within a penitentiary in Lombardy. Results are first presented as mean scores for each trait and compared with the normative data of the Italian adaptation of the instrument in order to provide professionals working in the field with clinically relevant information. Following, results of a confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) aimed at testing the structure proposed by Krueger et al. (2012) on a clinical sample are also presented. Findings confirm the presence of 5 domains, however some differences with regards to the overall number of facets (15 instead of 25) composing each domain have to be acknowledged. More specifically, some maladaptive sub-dimensions (i.e. manipulativeness, separation insecurity, hostility, deceitfulness, callousness, etc.) did not univocally converge on one domain and have therefore been eliminated from the model. Although preliminary, this study provides grounds for reflection on the connections between personality disorders, drug addiction, and crime and shows how the adoption of a multi-faceted perspective might contribute to the development of more focused and effective interventions.

  • Therapeutic group in the care of drug addiction in jail: Thoughts and
           emotions in the movement of homologation and differentiation
    • Abstract: Antonella Polla, Antonino Gallo
      In all form of addiction the external object sought is a substitute for lacking parts of self and functions that the internal structure of the subject is unable to perform. The fragile self seeks an object that fulfills the fundamental function of mirroring and confirmation of self-consciousness the sense of self. Precisely for this function the object becomes indispensable and it is necessary that it is always available. To ensure this, the person is willing to lose his differentiation and independence, as well as to renounce his specificity: differences and boundaries are smoothed because only in this way is it possible to experience closeness and intimacy, guaranteeing the continuous presence of the indispensable object- self and protect himself from a catastrophically neglected abandonment. Group psychotherapy has long been considered the treatment of choice for addictive disorders: through it is possible to experience new modes of relationship and start the process of emancipation, a nodal point in the treatment of this type of subjects. The homogeneous group is able to provide support to patients so fragile from the narcissistic point of view and makes it possible to compare with others that can be experienced as a resource and not perceived in terms of individual defeat and self-denial. The relationship with the other can thus be constituted as an exchange based on mutual recognition, thus breaking the typical isolation of addiction or, alternatively, the exclusive method of homologation. The clinical vignettes taken from the group psychotherapy work within Cremona jail are aimed to underline a continuous process, which unfolds along the whole group path, characterized by an oscillation between homologation and differentiation, and to show how this own process can start the possibility of emancipation.

  • Caregiver in prison: To have self care to have care of the other
    • Abstract: Raffaella Galli, Antonella Polla, Paola Mosa, Rossano Botto, Maria Gabriella Lusi, Giuseppe Novelli
      The present paper describes an experimental project activated within the Cremona District Prison in 2017, expression of a psycho-cultural approach aimed at enhancing the processing and transformation of behaviors and lifestyles at risk for oneself and for the other inside the prison. The aim of the project, aimed at Italian and foreign prisoners, is to foster the empowerment of the person through an educational/ training path of responsibility with respect to their own and to the other state of health and lifestyle, offering the structured opportunity of employment in assistance activities to support other persons in difficulty. To this end, frontal lectures were used through the promotion of the active participation of the detainees (role playing-patient assistant), spaces for direct interventions, interventions of the teachers re-interpreted by the prisoners themselves, and internship experiences both intra muros and in residential care services structures in the territory. There have also been some moments of re-elaboration of the contents, emerged during the internship, intended as a space for comparison and attention to one’s own experiences and the others within a process of personal growth. The general objective of the project (education and training of caregivers detained) is accompanied by specific aims such as the promotion and enhancement of the active participation of people held in prison and the development of skills that can be spent outside in activities to support people in difficulty. The psychological value of this project (soon replicable within the Cremona Institute) is helping the detained person to develop active processes of Self-awareness (resources and limits) and of the Other through the acquisition of new skills aimed at building a better-defined role identity.

  • The Framed Portrait Experience: Words and images within the contest of the
           execution of the sentence
    • Abstract: Emanuela Saita, Francesca Anselmi, Serena Ajuti, Roberto Quadraro
      The purpose of this paper is to describe a Framed Portrait Experience (FPE) that involved individuals convict in prison. This experience combines the technique of photographic portrait and autobiographical narration. These tools have been used to ease the process of integration of thoughts, feelings and memories, and to gain a deeper understanding of himself, and to increase on one hand the awareness of their own present and on the other hand the prospects of planning the future. The intervention was divided into six narrative meetings, followed by photographic sessions. A case is presented, enriched by its related photographs, which will enhance the description of the intervention.

  • Parenthood behind bars. A review of the recent literature
    • Abstract: Emanuela Saita, Miriam Fanciullo
      Detention is a highly traumatizing experience for both the incarcerated person and the family due to the break of the romantic and affective relationships. Detention itself influences either mothers’ or fathers’ experiences as caregivers and represents a risk for the psychological, physical and social well-being of the children. Thus, the parent-child relationship following the incarceration represents a relevant theme that raises clinical, social, and ethical issues. Electronic databases were systematically searched for studies published in the last twenty years on this topic. In this systematic review of the literature, the results of 27 articles on the issue of parent-child relationship in a prison context published between 1998 and 2018 were analyzed. The topics considered by literature could be summarized in three thematic issues: (i) children and types of risk following the incarceration of one or both parents; (ii) parents and how the prison experience affects the perception of one’s parental role; (iii) the characteristics of parent-child relationship and how the detention experience can harm the quality of the parent-child relationship. There is a lack of literature on these topics, for this reason this paper could represent a starting point for new investigations and future studies.

  • Steps towards clinical best practice guidelines for the treatment of the
           conduct disorders in the juvenile correctional facilities
    • Abstract: Tiziana Valentinia, Antonella Curatoloa, Elena Vegnia
      The present contribution focuses on the conduct disorders (CD) observed in the C. Beccaria Juvenile correctional facility of Milan. It aims at implementing a therapeutic intervention, starting from evidence based literature and from data which were gathered at the Clinical Psychology Unit of San Carlo Hospital, Milan, Italy. In the context of juvenile correctional facilities, CD prevalence is significantly higher than that in the normal population, with a range of 30 to 80% of cases. CD treatment is based on social learning theory where a deviant behavior is seen as a knowledge learned in the living environment of the subject, since a functional and socially rewarded behavior is lacking. Evidence based intervention includes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and, in particular, a stepped based care with a large involvement of the team of care-givers inside and outside the clinical setting.

  • Penalty, punishment and repair in the juvenile judiciary trial. An
           evaluation of the victim-offender mediation
    • Abstract: Giancarlo Tamanza, Ettore De Angeli, Marialuisa Gennari
      The juvenile criminal trial assumes in Italy a "special configuration", aimed at the recovery and rehabilitation of the minor and to avoid that the sanctions imposed produce destructive effects in its psychosocial evolution (DRP 488/88). For this reason the various institutes foreseen and the organization of the trial itself are inspired more by a reparative logic than by a punitive logic. This determines that only in a limited and extreme measure the process closes with the imposition and subsequent execution of a sentence and that instead it is mainly made use of other institutions that already in the course of the procedure favor the start of a rehabilitation process. In this framework, for a couple of decades, the practice of Victim-Offender Mediation has been introduced in numerous judicial districts. The paper presents the results of an evaluation research on the results obtained through an experimental intervention of Victim-Offender Mediation carried out in a judicial district of Northern Italy. The results of the research make it possible to identify some factors and conditions of exercise associated with the outcome of the intervention and also elements that contribute to delineating the specificity and the implications of a psychological nature. Two are the most significant results. On the one hand, the effectiveness of the interventions was verified, but - at the same time - some important problems in their implementation are found. Beyond the very limited amount of situations that despite being sent by the judiciary have never had access to the service (in 6.0% of cases the victim or the offender has not become available even to perform the informative and preliminary interview) was found that only in 57.1% of the cases initiated was it possible to complete the course (ie to carry out the direct meeting between the offender and the victim): in these situations the outcome was positive in 78.5% of cases. In 42.9% of cases, however, the intervention was interrupted after the preliminary phase (in which the victim and the perpetrator were individually met).

  • "Inside hell": A systematic narrative review of the literature on police
           suicide risk
    • Abstract: Emanuela Saita, Miriam Fanciullo, Federica Facchin
      According to the World Health Organization, up to 800.000 individuals commit suicide every year, especially among people aged 15-29 years. Thus, suicide represents a relevant problem that raises clinical, social, and philosophical issues. Among the various professional categories, police officers seem to be particularly at risk of suicide because of the frequent exposure to potentially traumatic events, exhausting shift work, as well as the organizational culture, which stigmatizes mental sufferance and does not promote talking about one’s vulnerability. In this systematic narrative review we analyzed findings of 24 studies published between 2003 and 2018. The main narrative themes were police suicide rates, stressors and their intra-psychic, behavioral, and relational consequences, as well as prevention and intervention programs. Of these 24 studies, only one focused on suicide in penitentiary police officers. For this reason, we deem it important to encourage research on this topic, which represents an important new avenue of investigation for future studies.
