Nothing left to lose? Freedom and compulsion in the treatment of dangerous offenders

Celia Taylor

  • The 'Dangerous and Severe Personality Disorder (DSPD) programme was established following the particularly high-profile double murder of a mother and one of her two daughters: the very kind of stranger killing that, although in fact extremely rare, the public identifies with most fearfully. This article examines the dynamics involved in offering dangerous offenders the chance to engage with a society that has hitherto refused to acknowledge them as full members, in the context of a medium-secure DSPD unit that operates as an adapted therapeutic community.
