Correctional settings contain “clients” (offenders) that pose unique challenges for forensic mental health professionals. Both the physical and cultural environments of corrections can produce unique situations and issues that forensic mental health professionals must navigate in order to be effective clinicians within this setting.
Using at least three scholarly resources from the professional literature, research unique aspects and concerns of correctional settings. The literature may include the Argosy University online library resources; relevant textbooks; peer-reviewed journal articles; and websites created by professional organizations, agencies, or institutions (.edu, .org, or .gov).
