Abstract [en]

In Sweden, the duration of treatment is increasing for patients admitted to forensic psychiatric care. To reduce the length of stay it is important for the forensic rehabilitation and recovery process to be effective and safe. Not much is known about how the process of recovery and transition begins and how it is described by the forensic patients. The purpose of this study was to explore how forensic patients with a history of high risk for violence experienced the turn towards recovery. A qualitative content analysis was used to analyze interviews with 10 patients who had decreased their assessed risk for violence on the risk assessment instrument HCR-20, and who were successfully managed a lower level of security. Three themes were identified: (1) the high risk phase; facing intense negative emotions and feelings (2) the turning point phase; reflecting on and approaching oneself and life in a new way (3) the recovery phase; recognizing, accepting and maturing. In the high risk phase chaotic and overwhelming feelings were experienced. The turning point phase was experienced as a sensitive stage and it was marked by being forced to find a new, constructive way of being. The recovery phase was characterized by recognizing personal circumstances in life, including accepting the need for structure, a feeling of maturity and a sense of responsibility for their own life. In order to ensure a successful recovery, the forensic nursing staff needs to recognize and support processes related to treatment motivation and turning points. Recommendations for best nursing practice are given accordingly.
