Il consenso informato al trattamento psichiatrico-forense. Luci, ombre, presupposti, prospettive
The progressive process leading to deinstitutionalization of socially dangerous insanity acquittees in Italy seems to have come
to its conclusion. Forty years after the closure of psychiatric hospitals, the latest custodial models regarding forensic psychiatric
patients also gave way to approaches to care and rehabilitation. In our opinion, however, the treatment of the forensic
psychiatric deserves specific profiles in relation to treatments, methods, motivations, objectives, setting.
In this paper, the authors will address the topic informed consent to forensic psychiatric treatment, its relationship with the
security measure and implications for treatment in the judicial context.
