The study ‘Characteristics and needs of long-stay patients in high and medium secure forensic psychiatric care – Implications for service organisation’, funded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) and led by Professor Birgit Völlm came to an end earlier this year with the results being discussed at an end of project conference which took place on Friday 18th March at the Institute of Mental Health on Triumph Road in Nottingham.

Therapeutic Environments 29 June 2015

The Institute held its first joint research conference with The Retreat, York in June. The event explored current research on Therapeutic Environments, and featured work currently underway in this area at the Institute and The Retreat. The underlying aim was to build on the existing relationship between the two organisations and develop new projects.

The day was well attended with around 50 colleagues coming together from the Institute, The Retreat and the Trust. Professor Paul Crawford, Director of the Institute’s Centre for Social Futures chaired the event and the keynote address was delivered by Dr Rex Haigh, Consultant Psychotherapist in Berkshire and Honorary Professor. Rex critiqued a range of assumptions commonly held about evidence-based practice and ‘alphabetti therapies’, and of personality disorder. He emphasised the therapeutic value of "GreenCare" as a back to basics development of the psychologically-informed environment.
