  • Personality disorder, treatment readiness and dropout from treatment in
           three community-based cognitive skills and violence reduction programmes
    • Pages: 247 - 257
      Abstract: The Journal of Forensic Practice, Volume 19, Issue 4, Page 247-257, November 2017.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to investigate the relationship between personality disorder (PD) treatment readiness and dropout from three community-based offending behaviour group programmes. Design/methodology/approach At the pre-programme stage, measures of PD and treatment readiness were administered to 186 offenders participating in either a cognitive skills programme, a general violence programme or a programme for domestically abusive men. Demographic and risk data were also obtained from the offender assessment system. At a one-year follow-up, comparisons were made between the risk, personality and treatment readiness profiles of programme completers and non-completers. Findings It was hypothesised that PD would be associated with low levels of treatment readiness at the pre-group stage and that both low levels of treatment readiness and PD would predict subsequent programme non-completion. Only antisocial personality disorder (ASPD) was associated with low overall treatment readiness, although antisocial, paranoid, schizoid, negativistic and borderline traits were associated with the facet of low self-efficacy. Non-completion was not predicted by younger age or recidivism risk scores and was most strongly predicted by the presence of a cluster A PD, as well as ASPD, low pre-group motivation and mixed race and white ethnicity. Research limitations/implications Paranoid and antisocial personality pathology present important obstacles to effective offending behaviour group work in the community. This illustrates that further consideration needs to be given to these important responsivity factors in future delivery and evaluation of these programmes. Originality/value The study provides a detailed analysis of factors associated with non-completion of three community-based offending behaviour programmes in the UK.

  • The PARALLEL Study (imPAct of expeRiencing Another’s seLf harm and
           suicidaL bEhaviour in hospitaL)
    • Pages: 258 - 268
      Abstract: The Journal of Forensic Practice, Volume 19, Issue 4, Page 258-268, November 2017.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to explore the experiences of both staff and patients in a medium-secure mental health unit of the self-harm and/or suicidal behaviour of others. Suicide and self-harm is highly prevalent in forensic settings and evidence suggests that experiencing other people’s self-harm and suicidal behaviour can lead to negative outcomes, both for staff and patients. This is particularly important in hospitals where patients are highly dependent on staff for support. Design/methodology/approach Semi-structured interviews were conducted with five staff members and six patients in a medium-secure male mental health unit in the North of England. Data were analysed following interpretative phenomenological analysis guidelines. Findings Three dominant themes were identified during analysis: the impact of suicide and self-harm; the role of others; and the importance of understanding and experience. Various impacts were discussed including desensitization, negative emotions and the desire to help. Other people played an important role in protecting against negative impacts, with shared experiences and peer support reported as the biggest benefits. Experiences of self-harm and suicide were found to increase understanding resulting in more positive attitudes. Additionally, the importance of training and education was highlighted. Originality/value This paper provides an insight into the experiences of staff and patients in medium-secure male mental health unit, which has benefits to practitioners when considering support mechanisms.

    • Pages: 269 - 277
      Abstract: The Journal of Forensic Practice, Volume 19, Issue 4, Page 269-277, November 2017.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to study weight changes during psychiatric hospitalization, so as to identify “obesogenic” features in a mixed (forensic and rehabilitation) inpatient service. Design/methodology/approach An observational study of psychiatric inpatients, gathering sociodemographic, clinical, weight, dietary and sleep information and an actigraphic assessment. Findings A total of 51 patients, aged 19-68, 40 males, participated at a median of 13 months after their admission. When studied, only 6 percent had a healthy weight, 20 percent were overweight and three quarters (74 percent) were obese. The mean Body Mass Index (BMI) was 35.3 (SD: 8.1). At admission, only three patients (8.3 percent) had healthy BMIs and over the course of their hospital stay, 47 percent gained further weight. A high proportion was physically inactive and half slept more than nine hours a day. Participants received high calorie diets and half (53 percent) smoked cigarettes. Practical implications Although antipsychotic medication is known to cause weight gain, this should not be seen in isolation when attempting to explain psychiatric inpatient obesity. An inpatient admission is an opportunity to provide a healthier eating environment, health education and assertively promote less sedentary behavior and healthier sleep habits. Social implications Obesity adds to the burden of this already significantly disadvantaged group of patients. Originality/value The results confirm earlier research showing that forensic and rehabilitation psychiatric inpatients as a group are obese, gain weight while in hospital and often smoke. The authors add data demonstrating that they are often physically inactive, sleep excessively and consume an unhealthy diet despite the provision of health focused interventions as an integral part of their inpatient program.

  • Women at the centre – using formulation to enhance
           partnership-working: a case study
    • Pages: 278 - 287
      Abstract: The Journal of Forensic Practice, Volume 19, Issue 4, Page 278-287, November 2017.
      Purpose The 2011 Offender Personality Disorder Strategy promoted formulation-led approaches to offender management. The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate how formulation can inform partnership-working with women offenders, specifically those with complex needs including personality difficulties. Design/methodology/approach Learning from partnership case-work is shared to highlight a psychological understanding of the needs of one female offender, and the organisational system operating around her. Findings The paper describes the development of a “volcano metaphor” as a conceptual framework to assist workers, without psychological training, to better understand the complexity of a client’s intense emotional world. It also reflects the impact of an individualised formulation for through-the-gate working. Practical implications The challenges and advantages of “joined-up” inter-agency working are highlighted, including some ideas on how to promote consistency. These include the use of formulation as the basis for decision making and to help “contain” strong emotions attached to working with complex women offenders. Importance is attached to stable and appropriate housing for such women by anticipating their resettlement needs prior to points of transition, and coordinating provision through multi-agency public protection arrangements. Originality/value The paper’s originality lies with the development of the volcano diagram as an accessible format for considering individualised formulation and risk assessment. The paper also offers detailed reflections on wider systemic processes attached to working with complex women offenders. It is particularly relevant to psychological practitioners working within probation and prisons, and also to offender managers.

  • A service for non-offending partners of male sexual offenders
    • Pages: 288 - 295
      Abstract: The Journal of Forensic Practice, Volume 19, Issue 4, Page 288-295, November 2017.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to present a case study of a novel service for the non-offending partners (NOPs) of men who have sexually offended against children. Design/methodology/approach The paper examines the rationale for the current service and the preliminary qualitative data that reflect how NOPs experience the group innovations. Findings Interviews and previous qualitative analyses demonstrate both the positive changes that the NOP programme supports regarding child protections skills and the value that NOPs perceive in incorporating male therapists and male offenders into the process. Research limitations/implications Given these recent changes to the NOP group, and the small group sizes, the ability to examine how the NOPs perceive these innovations, the personal impact they have on change in NOPs, and more importantly, the impact on recidivism and reduction of further harm to children are yet to be fully investigated and these are central questions for the service to ensure that it offers a valid and reliable intervention programme and limits the extent to which the programme can be generalised. Further research will plug this gap. Practical implications The service offers new challenges for NOPs with the aim of making them better understand offending against children, their role in protecting children, and ultimately the protection of children in general. This may act as a model for the development of future services for these individuals. Originality/value There are few programmes aimed at providing support and intervention for an often marginalised group of individuals, the female NOPs of men who have sexually offended against children. This programme includes new approaches to working with the women providing them with new sources of support and insight.

  • Policing registered sex offenders
    • Pages: 296 - 300
      Abstract: The Journal of Forensic Practice, Volume 19, Issue 4, Page 296-300, November 2017.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to outline current police risk assessment and management practice when working with those convicted of sexual offences. The paper introduces the newly implemented Active Risk Management System (ARMS), a risk- and strengths-based tool used by the police across England and Wales. Design/methodology/approach A brief review of the literature and current practice is discussed. Findings The paper notes that in order for practitioners to work in a context of rehabilitation and reintegration, particularly one that supports clients convicted of sexual offending, there is a real need for practitioners to have the skills and experiences to work with this group. They also need to hold core values that support the notion of change and they ought to be fully supported through formal supervision and training. Practical implications Following are the practical implications of this paper: ∙training ought to be regular and ongoing; formal supervision sessions should be made available for all ARMS assessors; assessors ought to be assessed and observed in practice; and performance measures must be related to the quality and effectiveness of the design and implementation of risk management plans rather than the quantity of plans or home visits. Originality/value Very little has been written about this unique group of police practitioners who work to assess and manage people with sexual convictions. Even less is known of the effectiveness and applicability of the ARMS tool. Thus, this review is of value to academic and practitioner audiences.

  • Mentally disordered young offenders in transition from child and
           adolescent to adult mental health services across England and Wales
    • Pages: 301 - 308
      Abstract: The Journal of Forensic Practice, Volume 19, Issue 4, Page 301-308, November 2017.
      Purpose This paper provides an overview of transitions across forensic child and adolescent mental health services in England and Wales. The purpose of this paper is to delineate the national secure services system for young people in contact with the youth justice system. Design/methodology/approach This paper reviews findings from the existing literature of transitions across forensic child and adolescent mental health services, drawing attention to present facilitators and barriers to optimal transition. The authors examine the infrastructure of current services and highlight gaps between child and adult service continuity and evaluate the impact of poor transitions on young offenders’ mental health and wellbeing. Findings Young offenders experience a broad range of difficulties, from the multiple interfaces with the legal system, untreated mental health problems, and poor transition to adult services. Barriers such as long waiting lists, lack of coordination between services and lack of transition preparation impede significantly smooth transitions. Research limitations/implications The authors need to develop, test and evaluate models of transitional care that improve mental health and wellbeing of this group. Practical implications Mapping young offenders’ care pathway will help to understand their needs and also to impact current policy and practice. Key workers in forensic services should facilitate the transition process by developing sustainable relationships with the young person and creating a safe clinical environment. Originality/value Transition of care from forensic child and adolescent mental health services is a neglected area. This paper attempts to highlight the nature and magnitude of the problems at the transition interface in a forensic context.
