Service Description

In this talk, I will describe the contribution of earlier traumatic losses to the later violent eruptions, with fatal consequences, for two young men, one who killed his mother and one who killed an unknown woman. One killing was a direct matricide and one could be considered an indirect matricide. Their developing personalities became disordered during their disturbed childhoods and the link between these developing personality disorders and psychoses is referred to. The need for long-term treatments is emphasised, as well as the importance of communication between therapist and clinical team. Dr Carine Minne chairs the IPA Violence Committee in the Community and World. She is a psychoanalyst with the BPAS and Consultant Psychiatrist in Forensic Psychotherapy at Broadmoor Hospital and Portman Clinic (NHS, Public Health Service, UK). She is Editor-in-Chief of the IJFP (International Journal of Forensic Psychotherapy). Carine was President of the International Association for Forensic Psychotherapy until May 2022. In her work, she brings together the disciplines of forensic psychiatry and psychoanalysis to work directly with offender patients in different settings, and indirectly, via teaching, training, and lecturing to professionals from various disciplines, nationally and internationally.
