HG Kennedy, D Timmons, P Gill, P McKenna, P Braham, R Mullaney, DUNDRUM Restriction and Intrusion Liberty Ladders (DRILL), 2011
This series of rating 'ladders' is intended to allow a quantitative and qualitative analysis of the use of restrictive and intrusive interventions as part of the therapeutic management of violence and aggression in psychiatric hospital settings. This is an evolving handbook. The ladders are currently organised to facilitate a behavioural analysis. Context, antecedents, behaviour, interventions, consequences are conceptualised as a series of events organised in temporal sequence so that causes, interactions and effects can be considered. The complexity of analysis possible is limited by the statistical power of the numbers of cases and events available.
PRESENTED This is the Handbook for the DRILL study, an audit and scientific assessment of legally controlled practices in forensic mental health in conditions of therapeutic security.
Key Words: forensic, secure hospital, seclusion, restraint.
