dc.description.abstractThe problems experienced by a sample of 30 female offender-patients (mean age 37.2 yrs) in a secure psychiatric hospital were surveyed using the Behavioral Coding System (BCS). Common problems were emotional difficulties, antisocial behaviors, auditory hallucinations, and self-injury. Problem profiles derived from medical records, key workers' reports, and patients' self-reports differed. The survey revealed the necessity of revising the BCS better to identify relevant concerns in this particular population. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2016 APA, all rights reserved)
