dc.description.abstractAnger is generally viewed as unfeminine and women who display anger are more likely to be unnecessarily labelled as 'psychotic' or 'dangerous'. There appears to be a link between those with a history of abuse and the psychiatric population, particularly among female mentally disordered offenders (MDOs) in high security care. A need exists for this problem to be rendered visible, which is ultimately the responsibility of those healthcare professionals charged with providing care and treatment for this population. This article proposes methodology which is aimed at stimulating and refocusing healthcare professionals' thinking in terms of female MDOs, and the need to provide tangible evidence of high quality forensic care.
