About the Author

Dr Anne Aiyegbusi is Deputy Director of Nursing, Specialist and Forensic Services within West London Mental Health NHS Trust. She has worked as a nurse in forensic mental health services for many years and is interested in integrating forensic psychotherapy with the nursing role. Additionally, she is interested in attachment theory and its application within forensic services.


This collection of essays provides a fascinating insight into the role of the Forensic Mental Health Nurse... Reading the book from a probation perspective, the resonances are multiple, and carry some salutary and timely lessons for the service... The probation service charges itself with promoting thoughtful action in those it supervises; what this book illustrates so well is the simple fact that a prerequisite to achieving this aim is allowing practitioners the time to think, feel and behave thoughtfully in their relationships with offenders. -- Probation Journal
