Abstract [en]

Patient participation in forensic psychiatric settings seems to be complex by nature, and previous studies show that patients rate their participation as lower in this context compared to general psychiatric contexts. Studies on caregivers’ perspective could provide a clearer picture of the components and possibilities of patient participation in forensic psychiatry. The aim of the study is to describe carers’ experiences in supporting patient participation in a maximum security forensic psychiatric care setting. Twelve psychiatric caregivers were interviewed about how they support patients’ participation. The result shows that a complexity of patient participation emerges as a difficult act of balancing the paradoxical role of caring for the patient’s interests and development, while simultaneously representing and adhering to the rules and regulations of the system in which one is employed. In conclusion, it is suggested that participation is comprehended as an umbrella term and that focus is directed to conceptualising what caregivers can do in order to create positive patient-carer relationships, as well as what constitutes such a relationship.
