Written by experts in the field of forensic medical health care, this book explores the current and emerging interventions in forensic nursing and the care of the mentally-disordered offender, with an emphasis on clinical practice and competence. It explores the practical issues facing forensic nurses, such as environment and safety issues, as well as the possible emotional trauma of such a role. It examines a range of intervention strategies, such as exercise, which has often been used as an occupational time-filler, but also offers real therapeutic benefits. The contributors cover a range of perspectives from the care of women in secure services, serverely assaultive patients and sex offenders, the role of inpatient therapy and nurse therapists and the importance of spritual nursing and educational interventions. THe book also examines the client group itself and considers new roles for nurses in the light of recent research.
