A Systematic Review of Psychosocial Interventions for Personality Disorders

Carole Wilson, University of Liverpool

I am being funded by the UK NHS to do a Systematic Review of Psychosocial treatments of Personality Disorders. This review will look at treatments in all settings where people with Personality Disorders would be situated. These settings are likely to include prison, secure hospitals and the community. At the moment, my Draft Protocol is being revised through the editorial process of the Campbell Collaboration Crime and Justice Group. Dr Anthony Petrosino (CCJG) has suggested that the Lead Reviewers within the group submit a paper and present their reviews at one of the Presidential Panels, which Professor Doris MacKenzie is organising, during the ASC meeting in Chicago, November 2002. This paper consists of my draft Protocol and following in the next section, a brief report of a pilot study, which I conducted in order to test the Draft Protocol's robustness.

I would present the preliminary results of my finished review at the ASC meeting in November 2002.
