Forensic and Emergency Psychiatry

Forensic psychiatry is a field of psychiatry which deals with the assessment and treatment of mentally disordered offenders and criminals.  It is an interface between mental health and law. The forensic psychiatrists have to balance the needs of the individual and the risk to society.  They provide medical treatment in a secure environment or where patients are subject to legal restrictions. In this session we will be discussing about Criminological studies, recent developments in forensic psychiatry, behavioral forensic science and ethical issues in forensic psychology. Emergency psychiatry is the application of psychiatry in emergency settings. The conditions requiring psychiatric interventions may include substance abuse, attempted suicide, psychosis, depression violence or other rapid changes in behavior.

Forensic psychiatrists are often called to be expert witnesses in  both criminal and civil proceedings. Expert witnesses give their opinion about a specific issue. Psychiatric emergency services are rendered by professionals in the fields of medicine, nursing, psychology and social work. Care of patients requiring psychiatric intervention usually encompasses crisis stabilization of many serious and potentially life-threatening conditions which could include acute or chronic mental disorders or symptoms similar to those conditions.
