Each patient has a personal carer, with whom the patient has regular treatment relationship discussions. Founded on the patient’s need for individual treatment and the carer’s professional and therapeutic interaction skills, assistive interaction is a vital and essential aspect of forensic psychiatric treatment. The interaction emphasizes psychotherapeutic elements which are used to help the patients recognise, process and manage their aggressive and violent behaviour. Treatment relationships often last for several years, making supervision an important form of staff support.
