Sample text

A useful concept here is that of the eighth amendment to the US constitution: a state of mind that results in ‘cruel and unusual’ behaviour is, on the balance of probabilities, a disordered mind. 2 Treatability The notion of ‘treatment’ for antisocial personality disorder and psychopathy also raises a number of ethical issues, principally the assumption that it is a disorder that is amenable to intervention. As Adshead (2002) has pointed out, the ‘treatability’ of any disorder relies on a number of factors, not all of which are to do with the individual patient.

The framework was used to provide a structure from which the clinical questions were drafted. Both the analytic framework and the draft clinical questions were then discussed by the GDG at the first few meetings and amended as necessary. Where appropriate, the framework and questions were refined once the evidence had been searched and, where necessary, sub-questions were generated. Questions submitted by stakeholders were also discussed by the GDG and the rationale for not including questions was recorded in the minutes.

However whichever model is chosen it is likely that the focus on assessment and intervention, at least in healthcare, will vary across the healthcare system. One approach that may be helpful is to consider people with antisocial personality disorder presenting to primary care as having ‘problems’; those presenting to secondary care as having ‘symptoms’; and those presenting to tertiary care to having either ‘complex problems’ or requiring a forensic assessment. For this approach to be effective within the stepped care model, practitioners at different levels would require guidance on: (a) recognition of the disorder and its implications regarding the presenting problem; (b) how to respond to this in an appropriate manner; and (c) under which circumstances a referral to another tier is indicated.
