Management of the Mentally Disordered Offender in Prisons
Drawing on extensive case studies and his experience as director of psychiatric services at the Regional Treatment Centre in Ontario, Geoffrey Conacher traces the MDO management process from initial assessment, through secure stabilization, to preparation for release and subsequent community supervision. He outlines the difficulties of managing a population of serious offenders and highlights elements of treatment that are essential if the MDO is to be reintegrated into the community. Conacher also considers dangerousness, issues of treatment, and forensic aspects of mental disorder, as well as psychiatric concerns that are particular to the prison context, such as ethical issues, predatory sexual behaviour, self-mutilation, suicide, the "inadequate offender," and the predictably dangerous mentally disordered offender.
