H2CM bibliography: New reference in "The Psychology of Arson"

I have only just caught up with a new addition to the bibliography for Hodges' model (please see the side bar).

The Psychology of Arson
ABSTRACT: KEY POINTS

  • One in ten patients in secure mental health settings have a conviction for deliberate firesetting.
  • This chapter views the issue of inpatient care and management from a forensic mental health nursing perspective. 
  • Hodges’ Health Career – Care Domains – Model (HCM; Hodges, 1998) is used to provide an overview of the political, biological, psychological and sociological aspects of care and management.
  • Nurses can deliver and/or support all aspects of care and treatment and have particularly significant roles related to management of relational security and recovery-oriented practice. 
  • The HCM can be usefully supplemented by a firesetting specific model to enhance nursing assessment.
