Fivoor Ambulant (a large forensic outpatient facility with several locations throughout the Netherlands) offers an extensive educational programme for therapists. Part of the programme contributes to improving the forensic vigilance of Fivoor staff. By forensic vigilance (Clercx et al.,2021) we mean the ability of therapists to recognise risks that patients pose to others (like aggressive behaviour) and respond to these risks appropriately. Most of the forensic vigilance training aims to improve individual knowledge and skills. However, forensic outpatient care is mostly provided by teams of therapists who depend on each other’s expertise and knowledge of the patient. Therefore, forensic vigilance has collective aspects too. To raise awareness in teams about their collective forensic vigilance and motivate them to participate in our forensic vigilance educational programme, we developed the persuasive card game BoevenBeesten. Fivoor Ambulant developed the game in close collaboration with the Gamelab at Delft University of Technology.
