Abstract

The progressive process leading to deinstitutionalization of socially dangerous insanity acquittees in Italy seems to have come to its conclusion. Forty years after the closure of psychiatric hospitals, the latest custodial models regarding forensic psychiatric patients also gave way to approaches to care and rehabilitation. In our opinion, however, the treatment of the forensic psychiatric deserves specific profiles in relation to treatments, methods, motivations, objectives, setting. In this paper, the authors will address the topic informed consent to forensic psychiatric treatment, its relationship with the security measure and implications for treatment in the judicial context.
