    Patient and staff perceptions of the ward atmosphere in a Swedish maximum-security forensic psychiatric hospital2005In: Journal of Forensic Psychiatry & Psychology, ISSN 1478-9949, E-ISSN 1478-9957, Vol. 16, no 2, p. 263-276Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The main aim of the study was to describe and compare the patient and staff perceptions of the ward atmosphere of a maximum-security forensic psychiatric hospital in southern Sweden. The main instrument used, the Ward Atmosphere Scale (WAS), was administered to both patients and staff on the eight wards of the hospital, where there was a total of 82 beds. The hospital has a regional responsibility for maximum-security forensic psychiatric care in southern Sweden. Forty-eight per cent of the patients and 82% of the staff consented to participate in the study. The results of the study showed that the patients rated intermediate levels of all the 10 subscales of WAS with the lowest mean scores for Autonomy and Involvement and the highest mean scores for Programme Clarity and Order and Organization. The staff, however, rated a low level of Staff Control and high levels of Programme Clarity, Practical Orientation and Support. The staff and patient perceptions differed on eight of the 10 WAS subscales with only Personal Problem Orientation and Anger and Aggression being rated at similar levels. The results are considered in the light of the limited available literature in the field. Furthermore, the differences between the perceptions of the two groups as well as the clinical implications of these differences are discussed.

    Reading level and the prevalence of a dyslexic profile among patients in a forensic psychiatric clinic2015In: Journal of Forensic Psychiatry & Psychology, ISSN 1478-9949, E-ISSN 1478-9957, Vol. 26, no 4, p. 532-550Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study aims to investigate Swedish language reading ability of forensicpatients and the number of them that present a dyslexia profile. Anotheraim is to compare the reading level in different subtypes of psychiatricdiagnoses. Assessments were made of 185 patients by a battery of readingtests. They were also interviewed about their schooling and theirself-estimated reading and writing ability. The results show that thepatients’ reading level is below average for grade six children in Swedishcompulsory school, and that 16 per cent show a dyslexic profile. Malepatients with an immigrant background and a diagnosis of psychosis andanxiety disorders perform the lowest when measuring literacy skills. Thisproportionately low reading ability can cause difficulties in understandingtexts as presented in broadsheet newspapers, civic information and patientrecords, and might even jeopardize the understanding of adult spokenlanguage.
