Forensic mental health increasingly recognises that personality disorders and problematic personality traits are frequently associated with offending in general. With some forms of offending there are more specific associations. Moreover, personality disorder profoundly influences the capacity of mental health services and individual clinicians to engage effectively with clients at risk of offending. In this workshop we will focus upon these associations, seeking to develop an understanding of: how best to assess and manage personality-disordered clients who have offended or are at risk of doing so; service and clinician factors which may assist in engagement; and how DSM-V personality disorder categories alter approaches to personality disorder. Professor James Ogloff AM is Director of Psychological Services at Forensicare, Foundation Professor of Forensic Behavioural Science Swinburne University of Technology, and Director of the Centre for Forensic Behavioural Science.
