25 What was different? more time on antisocial/ psychopathy paranoid and schizoid also included more forensic cases/ issues discussed more about criminality and responsibility humility humour

26 More time on Empathy and distinguishing from Collusion Can empathise without agreeing Not the same as taking side of prisoner Discuss concerns about “looking soft” in front of colleagues Concerns about being “taken in”

30 How much of the event did you find interesting?

31 Was the event……

32 Was the speed of the day…

33 General Comments ‘Useful reference for dealing with our client group within the prison setting. Emphasised the quality needed by staff for open empathic communication’ ‘Excellent – thoroughly enjoyed the day and the insight into disorders which will help in my day to day dealings with some individuals in Barlinnie’ ‘ I now have an increased awareness of PD. I can see the benefit to me in my role’ ‘ Gave me a good insight into personality disorders, how to identify it in my job and measures I can put in place to help me work with patients’ ‘ Fascinating and very helpful. Wish I’d done this 20 years ago’

34 Suggestions for future events ‘Over 2 days to allow more time for discussion’ ‘Make this course compulsive for all staff who have prisoner contact’ ‘Follow up training in venue away from workplace’ ‘This should be part of prison officers initial training at the SPS college. Very interesting and enjoyable’ ‘Would like more training to develop my skills’ ‘More in depth awareness and range of interventions’

35 ‘ Show more empathy’ ‘ Try to be more understanding now I know more about PD’ ‘ Be more understanding of people’s behaviours without judging’ ‘ In future this will raise question marks as to the reasoning behind someone’s behaviour instead of assuming they are just trying to be disruptive’ ‘Using suggestions during course when dealing with prisoners displaying PD traits’ One thing I will change about my practice is…
