Background: Forensic Psychiatry in Region Zealand has four medium secured wards, all located in the psychiatric hospital in Slagelse. In order to deliver care and treatment, it is necessary to train staff in a specific way. We have revitalized our previous training and developed an extended Safety Training Program lasting 12 days targeting our patients. The program includes interaction between practice in the clinic and the acquired theory and training obtained during the education. The Staff members will gain knowledge within topics such as psychopathology, psychopathy, ethics - ethics in everyday life and ethical dilemmas, mentalizing as well as legal material, rules, legislation and guidelines and through theory in combination with casework, the students will learn to Risk assess a patient. The Program has a strong ethical foundation where attitudes such as empathy, equality and respect are central concepts in our philosophy of effective violence prevention and management.
