Does LPP offer any treatment services?
All three of our prison services – HMPYOI Aylesbury, HMP Swaleside & HMP Belmarsh offer a range of treatments for personality-disordered offenders who are not progressing smoothly through the system and/or who are likely to return to the community within the next 12-24 months. This includes both individual therapy and group work – either psycho-education or more intensive programmes based on principles of mentalisation based therapy, schema therapy and dialectical behaviour therapy. Please contact the clinical leads in the People behind LPP section for further details.
In the community we run mentalisation based therapy groups for violent offenders, and a sex offender programme (the Challenge Project) – both are for high-risk personality disordered offenders who live in London and are under the supervision of the probation service. Please go to our Services section and to our Downloads section for further details.
