The Portman Clinic has been applying a psychoanalytic framework to the understanding and treatment of people who engage in violent, sexually harmful, criminal and delinquent behaviours since its inception in the early 1930s. Through this engagement we have developed a framework for thinking which informs our courses specifically addressing; risk and ethics, clinical assessment and treatment alongside the management of institutional difficulties which emerge in the care of these individuals.
