Mr Jon-Fernando Carey
have worked as a nurse in forensic psychiatry for more than 25 years, including in-patients, community work and in the Durham cluster of prisons. I have been involved in several projects, such as the development of Forensic Community Mental Health Team (CMHT) at the Hutton Centre, and its assessment process. I am a member of the Stalking Consultation Service, also based at the Hutton Centre, for which I have designed the Stalking Assessment Format.
I have organised two conferences on forensic psychiatry, the first in July 2002 concerning the interface between prison and health services, and Hearts & Minds concerning the delivery of forensic services in the north east of England in February 2007
Field of Study
My PhD project is looking at the initial assessment of mentally disordered offenders, utilizing theory from a critical realism. Its aim is to move assessment towards a more inclusive and collaborative process.
