The past several years have seen a dramatic surge in the requirement of service provision for individuals with personality disorders deemed to pose a high risk of harm to others.Using Time, Not Doing Time is a much–needed response to the increasing demand for information in this rapidly growing clinical service area, and offers an invaluable and long–awaited resource for the proper assessment, treatment, and management of personality disordered individuals.

Presenting practical information, emerging ideas and the findings of practitioners, Using Time, Not Doing Time is written to assist clinical practitioners with this highly challenging area of health care provision. Contributions are included from psychiatrists and educationalists, as well as psychologists and nursing staff, who are playing an increasingly important role in the delivery of treatment in forensic mental health settings.

The growing multidisciplinary nature of practice in this field means that practitioners from many professions can benefit from this book, including nurses, psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, day–care and therapeutic staff, as well as prison officers working within the criminal justice system.
