Criminal Offenders and "Mainstream" Outpatient Mental Health Care: Emerging Perspectives.
Pallone, Nathaniel J.
Journal of Offender Counseling, Services & Rehabilitation, v15 n1 p1-5 1990
Discusses inconsistencies in societal responses to criminal behavior. Maintains that some offenders who are both guilty of criminal behavior and psychiatrically (or biochemically) disordered are being diverted from the criminal justice system into the mental health system. Suggests that clinical neuropsychology and psychopharmacology can contribute to the development of treatment regimens and paradigms aimed at "dually deviant" offenders. (PVV)
