I am a therapist and our policy is no violent offenders. I found out that another therapist has a client who has 3 manslaughters charges and everyone acts as if "well it was along time ago". I can see this clients therapist has told manangement about his past. Yet he remains in our 6 month program. Also he is a walk in from the street so we could ask him to leave anytime. Please tell me how can my colleague continue to treat this "man"? Do we continue to treat the anger issues or should he not even be in our program.
He has recently become very angry & his true personality is coming out. He has met with management yet still is in our program. Help I really need answers........Nan
also does anyone know how to look up someone that has been in prison to get his records? Maybe this would help management see the light. This is not a lock down facility but we are fenced in.
I have had 16 view this in the past 10 minutes and no comments? Who is reading my post....Is it people from the forum or the doctors? Is there a way to tell....Please let me know your thoughts.
Your goal should be to find out the root of the anger. There is a reason why he is acting that way and i'm sure if he is willing to cooperate, you should be successful. Plant a seed in his heart with love and affection and let it grow to replace the negativity. You will know in six month if he is a change person. One way is to find something he is good at like in art, find a side in him and let him shine. One part I dislike about therapist is that they only work on the negative part of a person, you should try to have balance.
