A violence clinic: three years' experience.


Journal Article

The authors describe a clinical facility established for the neuropsychiatric treatment of individuals with a variety of psychopathological disorders where the common management problem is one of aggressive behavior. The authors present case vignettes to illustrate the clinic's consultation with mental health workers about the management of violent patients, countertransference problems, ward problems, the role of organic factors, medication, and prediction of violence. They urge that the subject of violence be included in the psychiatrist's training.
