This chapter describes the research and clinical evidence on which recent developments in services for personality disordered offenders have been based, and it offers practical guidance for both mental health and criminal justice practitioners. Drawing on 20 years of experience working with this group in community settings, the chapter highlights the need to adapt traditional assessment and treatment approaches if the historical tendency to exclude these individuals from services is to be overcome. Integrating psychologically informed management and social-inclusion approaches into models of community service provision allows psychological wellbeing and effective risk management to be addressed in an effective and defensible way.
