Forensic Mental Health

Concepts, systems, and practice

Edited by Annie Bartlett and Gill McGauley

  • A comprehensive and powerful analysis of the forensic mental health system, looking at the huge practical and ethical problems inherent in such a system
  • Brings together a range of highly experienced specialists, who describe and consider their own contribution to this process - one that ultimately has the right to deprive an individual of his or her liberty
  • Considers and compares the treatment of mentally disordered offenders in other parts of the world, challenging the reader to consider how their own role in this process might be made more effective and fair
