Example text

Many subsequently gravitate to environments where such an attachment style is normal, and 50 DANGEROUS AND SEVERE – PROCESS, PROGRAMME AND PERSON even confers benefits, such as delinquent or criminal groups and gangs. If they end up in prison environments, such attachment styles might again be adaptive, allowing them to anticipate danger and, to some degree, ward it off. This notion that the hostile, violent and threatening attitude displayed by Grendon men reflects an appropriate attachment style in the sort of environment in which they have grown up presents a model of therapeutic change for how the Grendon treatment works.

This is where notion of the living in therapeutic unit becomes pertinent. By establishing a whole residential culture with a therapeutic exploratory ethos, the effectiveness of the treatment is potentiated. It becomes a culture that is lived, rather than a group that is attended. It is more difficult to split 34 DANGEROUS AND SEVERE – PROCESS, PROGRAMME AND PERSON off alternative ways of functioning if one is immersed in a therapeutic environment rather than visiting it. There is an argument, therefore, that this sort of therapeutic set-up is the most effective way of delivering a psychodynamic treatment to a severely personality disordered population.

Many residents have a history of brief and intense attachments (for example, arrival at a new approved boarding school, misbehaviour and intense engagement with the school authorities for a short period, followed by expulsion and disruption of the attachment) and of being shifted around to different care-givers, for example foster parents or children’s homes. The at times overwhelming experience of arriving in the Grendon assessment unit, of finding staff with the time and inclination to talk to them and hear their stories, and with a genuine interest in them and their well-being; this is a somewhat intense experience for residents that fosters an attachment which then is disrupted after a short period, when they are transferred to a different community, their assessment period over.
