Impact of Service Organisation on Teaching and Training

This chapter sets out to describe the range of services currently provided for mentally disordered offenders in order to describe the teaching and training needs for forensic mental health professionals who will provide sustainable high-quality services. Other chapters in this book will have to serve that purpose in such areas as specialist personality disorder services, forensic child and adolescent services, intellectual and developmental disorder services, substance misuse and acquired brain injury co-morbidity services and many more.

While this chapter has emphasised the importance of education regarding how to systematise and manage forensic care pathways and patients, and these approaches have been learned from modern management theory and practice, the predominant culture of a forensic mental health service must be ethical, individual and oriented towards human rights and concepts such as individual risk, resilience and recovery that have no natural basis in management systems.

Maintaining progressive, effective and humane patient-centred services requires leadership that is self-critical and capable of advocacy for patients. Once again, this is a matter for education as well as training. With this in mind, there is both a bibliography and a selection from the research literature at the end of this chapter. Picking which pieces of research deserve to be regarded as canonical for teaching purposes is difficult. It is much easier to do this with longer form texts in a bibliography.
