The Atascadero State Hospital experience : Engaging patients in violence prevention.
Patients are an important, yet underused, stakeholder group in violence prevention efforts.
The forensic psychiatric milieu is characterized by a particular subculture known to staff but not fully appreciated.
Gaining greater understanding of the patient's perspective enables staff to provide more effective care.
Due to the commingling of mental illness and criminality, the forensic psychiatric population poses unique challenges, which call for creative, cautious approaches to maximize the benefits and minimize the potential security risks of structured collaborative efforts.
When involving consumers in hospital committee roles, the psychopathic criminal element in forensic psychiatric populations requires a higher level of vigilance and surveillance than may be necessary in nonforensic populations.
