Prevalence of trauma exposure is high within the forensic psychiatric population, making it a relevant factor for the treatment of forensic patients. The present study focuses on the implementation of an intensive short-term trauma treatment within a Dutch forensic psychiatric hospital, using both quantitative and qualitative research methods. Insights from this study show that trauma treatment could be an essential part of forensic mental health care in promoting patients’ resilience and responsivity.
