Purpose The purpose of this paper is to describe the pattern of self harm (SH) and proven prison rule breaking (PRB) behaviour in prisoners receiving treatment for personality disorders (PDs) within a high secure prison.Design/methodology/approach A comparative quantitative case study design supported the understanding of the frequency and pattern of SH and PRB behavior across two stages of a personality disorder (PD) treatment programme for 74 male prisoners. Data obtained from the prison’s records was analysed using dependent t tests, chi square test of independence and time frequency analyses.Findings Inferential statistics showed that the frequency of SH and PRB behaviour statistically increased across two phases of the PD treatment programme, however the method of SH or type of PRB behaviour engaged in did not change. Mapping the frequencies of incidents using a time frequency analysis shows the patterns of both behaviours to be erratic, peaking in the latter phase of treatment, yet the frequency of incidents tended to decline over time.Originality/value This is the first study to explore SH and PRB behaviours in men across two phases of a PD treatment programme.
Or bring more association meetings to your resort. It all possible. But first, believe us, you should seriously consider outsourcing your market research department.. “It suggests that as the Iraqi government is increasingly independent of the United States, it might use this freedom of action to ‘settle scores’ with its opponents or act on behalf of outside benefactors,” he said in an e mail. Residents of Camp Ashraf, home to more than 3,000 people, said in phone interviews that hundreds of Iraqi troops and police officers gathered outside the camp in the afternoon. Military, Iraqi troops in riot gear barreled through one of the camp’s gates and clashed with residents forming a human shield, according to residents..
Data comparisons indicate that pharmaceutical exposures in river systems are highly variable regionally, in part due to variability in prescribing practices, hydrology, wastewater management, and urbanisation and that select annual median pharmaceutical concentrations observed in this study were higher than those previously observed in the European Union and Asia thus far. Significant spatial variability was found between all sites in both river systems, while seasonal variability was significant for 86% and 50% of compounds in the River Foss and Ouse, respectively. Seasonal variations in flow, in stream attenuation, usage and septic effluent releases are suspected drivers behind some of the observed temporal exposure variability.
