A brief description of the place of psychodynamic psychotherapy in the treatment of offenders is followed by an account of a forensic psychotherapy course run under the auspices of the British Postgraduate Medical Federation. The first year of a second year course leading to the diploma in Forensic Psychotherapy of the University of London is also described.
The fourth Forensic Psychiatry Specialist Section Conference of the College was held at Stratford-upon-Avon on 1 and 2 February 1985. The theme was the Homicide Act and the wider context of insanity legislation in theory and in practice. Not difficult to predict that so many differing ‘expert’ opinions would be expressed—a mirror of the ‘ritual dance’ of experts in court perhaps—but not so predictable that the papers should be so clearly expressed and mostly rigorous as they were, and that some degree of consensus should emerge. I shall attempt to summarize parts of the contributions and some of the suggestions made for change.
The prevalence of emotional disorder in a total of 72 patients suffering from myasthenia gravis or from peripheral neuromuscular disorders was assessed, using the General Health Questionnaire and Present State Examination.
