Quick Overview

The whole subject of Dangerous and Severe Personality Disorder has been associated with interest, anxiety and controversy in almost equal measures. There are those who are keen to see this exciting development move forward, whilst others are either sceptical or antagonistic towards the whole concept, seeing it as an infringement of civil liberties and something with which mental health professionals should not be associated. There has been a polarisation of views and the consequence has been the emergence of myths, half-truths and facts.

I hope by the time you have read the papers in this edition you will have a clearer understanding of the challenges and be in a position to pose the important professional questions that must be asked about innovative developments such as DSPD.
