Course Description: Forensic psychiatric patients frequently have comorbid diagnoses that include a combination of psychotic symptomatology, personality disorders, neurodevelopmental disorders, and substance-related disorders. Patients in this demographic share similar characteristics; i.e. a need to accept the committed offense, lengthy treatment duration, and risk assessments for repeat offending. Patients and professionals concur that an essential aspect of forensic psychiatric treatment is ascertaining the factors that have a bearing on the offense, working through factors leading up to the offense, and ultimately, working through the offense. Pharmacological and psychosocial support also factor into the planning and administration process relative to criminal recidivism risk mitigation.

  1. Identify the 3 main themes and methods that emerged from the study pertaining to offense-related issues as examined in the article
  2. Analyze the data by exploring the 1 thematic analysis used in the study for highlighting similarities and differences, generating insights, and examining the perspectives of each research participant
