All About Forensic Psychiatry

All About Forensic Psychiatry

Forensic psychiatry is generally identified as a specialized offshoot of psychiatry, dealing with the calculated treatment and evaluation of mentally disordered offenders in secure hospitals, prisons and in the community. This branch of psychiatry requires an indepth understanding and thorough knowledge of the connection between legality and mental health. 

Patients of Forensic Psychiatry, generally are affected with personality dysfunctions, mental illness, psychopathic disorders, organic brain damage, learning disability and other conditions, such as histories of abuse and traumatic experiences as well as substance abuse and misuse.

Nature of the work
The most important prerequisite of this branch of psychiatry is a secure and safe environment where the subjects are liable to legal restrictions. Evaluation and assessment may vary from highly secured hospitals and prisons to low secure units and community based services. Forensic psychiatrists must have a thorough knowledge of civil, criminal and case law because of their frequent dealings with criminal justice agencies and the courts. 

An important component of Forensic Psychiatry is risk assessment and evaluation. Forensic psychiatrists must be fluent and adept at handling patients during emergencies or routine situations. Moreover, they should be calm, composed and professional in their dealings, especially with patients who display instability or violent and aggressive behavior.

The probation service, the prison service and the courts generally rely on forensic psychiatrists for expert advice, precisely because of their familiarity with preparing reports for mental health review tribunals and criminal justice agencies.

Imperatives: 

  1. Quintessentially, the obligatory role of a forensic psychiatrist requires:
  2. Ability to treat others with understanding and respect
  3. Ability to work flexibly
  4. Emotional resilience along with the ability to empathize with patients
  5. Anticipation and an inherent initiative to work in challenging situations
  6. Good communication skills
  7. A scientific and analytic approach and assessment
  8. Good leadership qualities

Do non pregnant women lactate? If so, do this happen for women who has much breast stimulation?

MBBS, DGO
Obstetrician, Pune
Post pregnancy when pregnancy is not there, normally women are lactating. It can be continue lactating for 2 to 3 years if women continue feeding baby. Otherwise women do not lactate. If it is the case than do blood "prolactin" level, if it is raised than you need treatment for it. It is the reason behind lactation. More breast stimulation also can increase level of prolactin. But if levels are normal than do consult with a surgeon to see properly what is problem and you may have to send secretion of breast for examination.

Most likely causes fof leakage is infection either urine or local vaginal infection. So get complete blood count, urine test and vaginal swab to look for cause. Treat the cause and have complete bed rest with foot end elevated to prevent leakage.

Single live foetus in breech presentation Placenta: posterior low lying, with grade 1 maturity. Lower margin of the placenta is near the internal OS Is there any problem with this report.

We need to know what 8s the age of your pregnancy. Breech means baby is upside down. It may turn into normal with time. Low lying placenta is dangerous in late pregnancy because of risk of severe bleeding. If seen in early pregnancy it may rise up without any problem. So take rest, repeat ultrasonography after 4 weeks.

No no dear. You cannot be pregnant on 6th day of menses. If you still doubt, you can go for upt test and confirm it. It will be negative. And menses will come. Don't worry.:)

I pill is a hormonal steroid. It will affect your periods. If you want to regulate it, then you either take I pill regularly, or stop taking it and use other methods like condom while having intercourse. Take Ashoka Q 10 drops in one cup of water once in a day for 1 week daily.

Dear Lybrate user, You have mentioned that she has thyroid at the beginning of your statement and that she has normal thyroid at the end. If she has thyroid, then she should be put on appropriate treatment and then investigated whether she can get pregnant. Most of the ladies with thyroid problem conceive.

I am not interested in having children. What alternatives to hysterectomy are available?

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Kolkata
That's a serious decision at this age. And hysterectomy just to avoid pregnancy is far too severe a solution. If you can afford ₹ 5000, best is a Mirena intrauterine device. It will give good contraceptive benefit and other positive health effects for the next 5 years. Effects are reversible on removal at any time. Copper T will cost lesser than ₹ 1000 but last 3 years, with mild side effects. After 5 years if you are still convinced not to conceive at all, go for laparoscopic Fallope ring application. This will block the tubes and cause permanent (but not absolute) sterilisation without loss of hormonal health. That's all.

You and your husband needs detailed work up and then to decide the treatment plan. Menopause at 31 years is not common but still can happen. But that does not mean that there is no hope. Even after this ''early menopause", you still can have a baby. Never lose hope. All the best.
