Sample text

Within adult community forensic mental health services, there are generally two different service models: an integrated model, working within the associated community mental health team (CMHT), and a parallel model, where the forensic team is separate from the CMHT but works alongside it instead (Thomson 2008; Mohan et al. 2004). Judge et al. (2004), in their survey of community forensic mental health teams (CFMHTs), found that 80 per cent used a parallel model. All the teams offered risk assessment and management, and half offered anger management and cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT).

For example, the Structured Assessment of Violence Risk in Youth (SAVRY) (Borum et al. 2005) has been devised to assess risk of future violence, and the Assessment Intervention Moving on (AIM) assessment (Print et al. 2007) has been devised to assess risk of future sexually harmful behaviour. Even if they work with adults, it is important that psychologists also know and understand the risk assessment tools for adolescents, in order to help make sense of any assessments that have been carried out during their clients’ adolescent years.

Even if the person under supervision does not reoffend, the Probation or Youth Offending practitioner will not be seen as having done their job properly if they have not required the individual to maintain a reasonable frequency of appointments, or if they have failed to take all reasonable action to manage any potential risk of harm to others. As we have seen, there have been many uncertainties and several changes over the last 40 years in any attempts to define what these practitioners have been required to achieve.
