Episode 96 - Dr. Amy Watson and Brian Kelly: Forensic Assertive Community Treatment: Preliminary Outcomes and the Role of Environmental Influences
Interviewer: Patricia Logan-Greene, PhD, MSSW
Monday, May 14, 2012, 9:42:29 AM
In this episode, Dr. Amy Watson and Brian Kelly discuss their research into Forensic Assertive Community Treatment, an adaptation of traditional ACT that attempts to explore the unique challenges faced by previously incarcerated persons with mental illness as they re-enter communities. Dr. Watson and Mr. Kelly interpret their findings and advocate for a broader response beyond focus on this population's mental illness to an appreciation for environmental factors (such as housing) in the population's attempts to avoid recidivism and experience success in the community.
